Mar 12, 2019 · 2 min read

We take security very seriously, and have already taken action to additionally protect our data. The security of our users, and conservatives generally, is our primary concern, and we will continue to improve our systems in any way possible to guarantee their safety.

Please note that the individual who noticed an issue never gained access to any user’s passwords, nor were they able to change or alter any data on our servers, nor were they able to log into our servers or access our databases directly. The small amount information in which they were able to access has now been additionally protected.

As we have seen across the United States, conservatives particularly have come under attack for their political beliefs — verbally, physically, and electronically. This is unacceptable in a free society, and we will take every action to stop it, and assist our users in that as well.

We see this person’s illegal and failed attempts to access our database servers as a politically-motivated attack, and will be reporting it to the FBI later today. We hope that, just as in the case of many other politically-motivated internet attacks, this perpetrator will be brought to justice, and we will pursue this matter, and all other attacks, failed or otherwise, to the utmost extent of the law. We log all activity against all our servers, and will present those logs as evidence of a crime.

The users of 63red are safe, and it is our mission to guarantee their safety. We are steadfast in that mission.
