Site Security News

The MMI site recently saw an uptick in odd HTTP access patterns. We have had some intrusions in the past, so we considered the possibility of another break-in to be significant.

Since the site is mostly providing information, rather than two-way communications, we chose to take the site offline to allow the Operations team at UCSD to investigate. They completed their investigation promptly, and happily did not find any indication of ongoing malicious activity.

So the site is back up and running, and we are continuing to evaluate paths to migrate it to a more up to date and supported Drupal installation. (Volunteers still welcome!) Thank you for your continued support and visits!
