HOSTING FIRM FASTHOSTS sent a letter to its customers warning them a server had been hacked.
The firm said: “We have recently discovered evidence of a network intrusion involving a Fasthosts server. We have reason to believe that the intruder has gained access to our internal systems, and that this may have in turn given them access to your username and some service passwords.”
As a precaution, it is asking customers to change main account passwords, email passwords, FTP passwords and MySQL and MS SQL database passwords.
It added: “We recognise that this may cause some inconvenience and concern, and for that we sincerely apologise. Please be assured that your account security is extremely important to us, and we have taken every step possible to secure your information against any future intrusion attempts.”
