Company Flashpoint grappled with independent expert in cybersecurity Dancho Danchev.Researcher insists that company’s official website distributed malware programs.
“It appears that Flashpoint’s official Web site is currently embedded with malware-serving malicious script potentially exposing its visitors to a multi-tude of malicious software”, – Dancho Danchev wrote in his blog.
“Attack did not specially target Flashpoint. It was automatic attack that hacked out website and introduced vulnerability. No PII or customer information was breached, and our public-facing website is segregated from all other systems and production environments”, – reported Flashpoint.
Official Flashpoint website is temporary offline until all consequences will be fully eliminated.
Nevertheless, company emphasized that Dancho Danchev’s claim that Flashpoint intentionally infects visitors of official website with malware programs is not true.
«Flashpoint’s public-facing website is not and was never serving malware.»
