On Monday February 6th, you may have noticed a message with “Hacked” on the GT login screen. We want to ensure our customers this did not affect or expose their data in any way.
Our public web site, guardiantracking.com, is managed by another company entirely. The public website uses a popular piece of software called WordPress to allow management of the site. Through an exploit in WordPress, a hacker posted a message on our blog and many other WordPress blogs around the internet. This message was displayed on your GT login page because the latest guardiantracking.com blog post is always displayed on the GT login page.
We worked quickly with our vendor to ensure that the hacked post was removed and the exploit patched. The public guardiantracking.com site is in no way tied to the Guardian Tracking application. Your data was in no way accessed or compromised. We apologize for any concern this may have raised. If you have further questions or concerns, please reach out to us: firstname.lastname@example.org
