News! - Cyber attack : JARDesign site attack

The X-Plane JARDesign developer site was involved in a cyber attack, details from JAR are noted here:

 

"On the night of January 31st 2021, our website and servers were attacked," the developer noted in a Facebook message. "The attack on the servers resulted in crashes when loading the X-Plane if our products were installed in the plugins folder."

"The services were unavailable and it took us about 5 hours to fix the problem. I apologize to our users for these problems and these terrible 5 hours. Now, the work of the web-site, forum, download pages and plugins Internet services has been fully restored. Sorry again."

 

Not that JAR needs to apologise for something that is not of his doing? A video was also circulated...

 

 

While the servers were down, users were able to access JARdesign aircraft and products, messy for all of us, but at least the attack seems to have done no permanent damage...
