Site hacked message – resolved

If you search for the SSC in Google you might see a note in the results that the site may have been hacked. There was a SPAM problem which has now been fixed. This wasn’t a vulnerability with the actual SSC site which was up to date with security rather either a wider problem on server or a retired sibling site. There are likely hundreds of sites running on one server.

This issue has been fixed now and I’ve requested Google remove the penalty notice in the results. Going forward we may possibly switch to different hosting. The hosting company should have flagged the problem before Google and they have apologised.

It’s worth noting that this does not affect the web shop.

[update] Google have reviewed this site, approved it and will be removing the notice.
[update] 15th Jan all resolved now.
