Temporary disruption on services

Postby Brutus5000 » 20 Mar 2020, 15:35

Dear commanders,

tonight we found a security vulnerability in our API. After some evaluation today we decided that we immediately need to hotfix this issue regardless of the impact it will have on our other services.

As a result of that a lot of errors will occur around FAF will break, especially in the are of statistics., The website is the most prominent example right now :(

We are in contact with the developers of the library where the problem occurs and are searching for a solution. However the current situation might last for a week or longer.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but the protection of your personal data has the highest priority.

Thanks for your hard work, and I completely understand the need to shut down while it's fixed. Can we expect a post-mortem at some point detailing what was potentially at risk and what the vulnerability was?
