Recent Hacking Incident

Users of the DKAD website may have observed that malicious content was posted on dkad.ie a number of days ago as part of a hacking incident which targeted users of content management system upon which our website is based. We wish to assure all clients and suppliers that no confidential information was compromised in any way. The affected files were all held on a third party server which is entirely separate to our office network, and which contains only publicly available promotional material for the website.

Our web hosting company identified the issue promptly. The problem related to their administrative interface which told us that a security update had been installed, when in fact, it had not been installed. The issue has now been fully resolved, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Please note that all dkad computers use high quality fire walls and antivirus software, and we operate a consistent data protection policy.
