I think it very likely that we would not host xoops any longer on any of our servers.


Now you have to take this with a little pinch of salt as the only hacks that have experienced by us have been on Easyhosting's servers. (Other sites are run on a different hosters.) Easyhosting have been asked to provide details (in detail) of the security breaches and the response is awaited. We might be waiting a long time.

In the meantime valentinewalton.co.uk and bbcb.co.uk (not effected yet but on the same hosters) need a fast and free home for 3-6 months while this stuff gets sorted.
