What an absolute brass neck the ST has!
Today they posted this on their website -
On Sunday 5th February at 14.40, our website was compromised by a hacker. All websites are unfortunately prone to hacking, and in our instance, the offender accessed the backend login of the website using account login details and placed a post onto the website.
The incursion was bothersome but not dangerous and at no time was member personal data at risk. All the data of members is stored, with extra security, on a 3rd party site therefore there is no compromise whatsoever with any members details: personal, card, bank details nor otherwise.
Swift action has been taken to move forward positively from this event. The offending post was swiftly removed and the days since the hacking have been spent closely monitoring the site. All site and member data is well and remains secure and uncompromised. In addition, all passwords have been changed to higher security ones. An email has also been sent informing members that their details are safe.
We’re really sorry for the alarm this might have caused, and we realise you’re likely to have further questions about happened. Should you require any more information, please email [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The hack took place on the 22nd January as evidenced by a picture of the actual hack - look at the date stamp on it!!![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Even if you think I have some sort of agenda against them (I know some do!) the first mention of the hack (and the subsequent screen grab above) was posted by Carlos (a moderator) on WanderersWays at 11.25am on the 5th Feb - a full three hours before the hack even took place according the ST statement!!!

If this isn't bad enough The Lion of Vienna a long time champion of the ST today posted up in reply to the ST's tweet on this matter this -
.@BWFCST guess you regret not taking this guy up on his offer then #bwfc[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The very next post on the twitter thread is someone asking for his personal details to be removed from the BWST website!
Seems there as been a known security problem with their site for over a year!!!
You'd think today of all days with what has gone on between the clubs owners that being honest about things would be of importance but apparently this message has been lost upon the ST.
All I can say is that I'm mighty pleased they are not responsible for any of my personal information!
Can you say the same?[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
