Security Breach reported at Naavi.org Server end

It has been reported that due to a security breach at the server end, three unauthorized URLs had been hosted under the domain of naavi.org for some time during the last week.

The URLs hosted/intended to host malicious codes.

There was no link to these URLs from any of the naavi.org pages. Hence none of the visitors to the site were affected by the links.

The URLs were reportedly meant for hosting a cloned Paypal page which was meant for phishing.

The URLs have since been removed.

The hosting of Naavi.org is on a shared hosting service provided by a prominent hosting provider with decades of experience in the field and we hope that the security breach would be effectively addressed at their end.

This is for public information and highlights the unavoidable risks in hosting arising out of vulnerabilities at the server end on which the clients have no control.
