FISM 2018 security post deleted ?

Postby CraigMitchell » March 17th, 2017, 8:04 am

My post concerning the major security vulnerability on the FISM 2018 booking website was mysteriously deleted.

With thousands of registrants potential credit card information being placed at risk - I would hope that this is something we would not want to keep secret.

May I ask why it was deleted from the Genii Forum ?

Registrants surely have the right to know if their personal information is being put at risk until the vulnerability is fixed.

Awareness helps get such problems resolved as soon as possible.

The post could expose the Genii Forum to liability from FISM whether true or untrue. There is no way to assess your credentials or whether what was posted was accurate. The best way for this to be handled is for anyone with an interest to contact you directly. The Genii Forum is not a arbiter of technical issues, it's a magic forum.
