Status of software tools - VStar, SunEntry, Seqplot, Zapper
By now I'm sure you have heard about the security breach we recently experienced at the AAVSO. Fortunately, it does not look like any data was lost or personal information compromised. Financial data is not kept on our servers so that was never in danger.
As part of the cleanup operation, some programs that require database connections such as SunEntry, Seqplot, and Zapper have been temporarily disabled so that they can be made more secure. VStar can still be used but certain features and access to the AID has been disabled. We will re-release upgraded versions and let you know when we have done so as soon as practicable.
We very much appreciate your patience, support and understanding.
