The DistributeIT Situation Thus Far…

As you would be aware, DistributeIT was the subject of a targeted, malicious, attack by hackers late on Saturday, June 11. The attack was a deliberate attempt to take down the DistributeIT business, and doesn’t appear to be specifically aimed at stealing client data for gain. The attackers were coordinated in their approach and set out to do as much damage to our systems and software as possible, which they were largely successful at achieving. The attack was very swift, precise and lasted only a short duration and was targetted towards destroying drive header files therefore maximizing the impact in the short time they had before our engineers shut down the Network.

It has taken from then till now to restore my domain and import my backup from January.  Sadly, I had no backups since then.

My plan now is to build anew rather than try and restore all that I had done and changed since January.  So, my first steps will be reworking of the sites layout and plugins.  When I am happy with that I will move on to restoring some posts that I have previously made.  And then I will move onto new things.

So we begin……
