    Hi all,

    The latest word on the hacked server is that it was not a problem with
    Campsite, but rather an old version of Red Hat 9, which is no longer
    freely updated. The operating system will be reinstalled tomorrow, and
    backups will be used to restore the sites in question. This does not
    affect www.campware.org.

    While we're breating a sigh of relief that it doesn't look like a Campsite
    vulnerability, we're still working hard to get Fedora installed on the
    server as quickly as possible.

    Thanks for your patience,

    douglas
