On Thursday morning, February 1, 2007, CDC staff became aware that CDC's Podcast site (www.cdc.gov/podcasts) had been hacked. As a precaution, CDC has removed the Podcast site and we anticipate the site will be down for the next few days. We are working to make sure that the Podcast site is safe, and we will repost it in a few days.
At this time, CDC does not have any evidence that sensitive information has been compromised in any way. However, it is possible that computers used by visitors to CDC's site may have been infected with a computer virus. Users that visited the site Thursday morning should ensure their computer has been scanned for viruses. Regular virus scans are an important precaution for all Internet users.
We apologize to CDC Web site users for any inconvenience.
