Amateur TGP Amateurs-Guide.com was hit with and recovered from a cyber attack yesterday.
The company was the victim of a hack that replaced the site’s gallery post page with the hacker’s calling card.
“You can imagine my surprise when I went to check on my website and instead of an amateur niche TGP found a Web page that said ‘Defaced by Balinese Crew,’” says Ayrora Temple, owner of Amateurs Guide. “My partner Stephen was able to quickly restore the TGP from an earlier database back-up. Thankfully, these pranksters weren’t as malicious as they could have been.”
The incident was reported to the site’s host, Naked Hosting, which took measures to prevent a successful reoccurrence of the attack.
The site was down for less than an hour.
