Planetsave Hacked, But We're Back

  • Published on May 29th, 2013

climategateYou may have noticed some weirdness on Planetsave the past couple days — that is, no new articles. The story is, we were hacked. Since Monday morning/afternoon, our team hasn’t been able to log in to the backend (where we write and publish articles). We haven’t even been able to access the login pages. Actually, this happened across our network (Important Media) and on other multi-site WordPress installs across the interwebs.

The issue seems to be resolved. Let’s hope so. And our regularly scheduled programming will now resume.
