Subject: [PCCLIST] GeoNET Names Server hacked?


[External Email]

Dear All,


Today when I tried to access the GEOnet Names Server all I got was a “Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead” and neither Chrome nor Firefox would let me in. Has anyone else encountered this. I use this site frequently for authority work and have never had any problems before today.


Thanks for any help.
