Recently, the NHPPA was victim to two simultaneous and unauthorized attacks—and it wasn’t a hobby hacker.

While our resident tech specialist (who has handled threats and kept us safe for 15 years) is positive it was social engineering, the attack was specific and targeted. It took the hacker many steps to identify points of entry and anything weak within our system. Below we outline why we couldn’t respond to your emails or have access to our website to update or upload our work.

On a morning, as normal as any other, we tried to log into the main NHPPA computer and found that we kept getting an error. On the fourth and last attempt we saw the issue and took a screen shot. It’s what you see above, “You’ve been hacked. LOL.” We didn’t think it was funny.
