Badware nuked!

August 26th, 2010

We’re happy to say that the badware problem has been completely nuked and hopefully will never return. We’ve moved hosts, locked down unnecessary services, changed passwords and beefed up security in general.

Sorry for the stress folks – everything back to normal – happy rippling!

Badware problems

August 22nd, 2010

Hello ripplers,

We’ve discovered this morning that unfortunately the Ripple site was compromised by malware.
Some of you who are using Chrome as your browser will have seen “This site could harm your browser” type messages. We’re incredibly unhappy about this and we are very concerned that some users could be avoiding the site as a result.

WHAT WE’RE DOING: The malware has been removed and we are now working to remove the malware warnings via Google, although they haven’t responded to our initial request, and it can take up to 24 hrs. We hope to have this resolved as quickly as possible and Ripple to return to normal operations.

We are also moving hosts as a precaution as we have had some concerns about recent security incidents and advisories.

Please keep an eye on the blog for details and hopefully this will be resolved shortly.

UPDATE 27/08/2010: We’re happy to say that the badware problem has been completely nuked and hopefully will never return. We’ve moved hosts, locked down unnecessary services, changed passwords and beefed up security in general.

Sorry for the stress folks – everything back to normal – happy rippling!

Brazilian Ripple…

July 23rd, 2010

Auire! (I believe that’s how they say hello in Brazil)

A quick shout out to Felipe Soares from Brazil, who is supporting Ripple through his insurance brokerage http://www.segurosud.com.br/qs_rs.html

Keep Rippling!

The Search Continues…

July 18th, 2010

Ripple-search
We’ve had some issues with running ads on search pages in certain browsers, but we’re pleased to say our devious engineers have worked out a solution and we now have ads running on the search pages in all browsers.

Please keep in mind this will raise more funds for our charities, but let us know if you think it will affect the way you use Ripple. We’re very conscious of providing a good search experience, and balancing this with a reasonable level of advertising, so let us know your thoughts in the comments.

And don’t forget – you can add Ripple to your browser!

Boom.
