A note from CoS regarding recent malware warnings

on September 15, 2011, 10:39pm

Some of you may have noticed a “malware” warning over the last couple of days on our website. What happened was that some guy thought it’d be fun to insert some bug into our humble music publication thereby making it difficult and scary for readers to read our stories, features, and reviews. Ok, first: hackers are jerks. I’ve been sick before, but when I’m sick I’m usually saying, “Stay away from me, man, I don’t want to get you sick, too” and not “Hey, let me shove this flu down your throat HAHA that’s what’s up!” That’s just rude and you’re a jerk.

Second: turns out people may not want to visit a website that could potentially harm their computer, which makes total and complete sense. We sincerely apologize for all the imposing messages over the past 48 hours, and many thanks go out to those readers who helped us out and kept us updated as we worked to tried to shake this thing out of our mainframe — or whatever goes on under the hood that keeps CoS alive.

Third: we believe we’ve ousted this thing, and we’ve taken extra precautions on the back-end to make sure that not only our site is safe as possible, but that you all are totally safe visiting it as well.

Today, Consequence of Sound turns four. I know you were going to get us all the SMiLE Sessions Box Set, but save your money and instead if you had a friend be like, “hey COS waz hacked dont go there no more dummy”, kindly tell them that our site is hale, hearty and back to normal. It’d mean a lot.

Thank you for your patience, and as always, thank you for reading.
