    The Bill Kelso website has been down for a couple of weeks already. Does anybody know what's going on there, are they still in business?

    There was a hack attack on their website. Check some relevant threads on the VLJ forum.

    The website is still down. Sounds a bit strange to me that their website has been hacked. If that's actually the case, why wouldn't BK mention it on any of their social media pages? Moreover, why should anybody hack their website?

    Making money, encrypting data and extorting some bucks for decryption.

    Even if they actually had access to their database and hyjacked the data, BK could just reinstate a copy of their website.

    Imagine your business' website having been hacked and you were to take it offline for weeks... Would you not mention it on any of your social media channels?

    Not sure...I would inform suppliers and customers with pending orders, personally, but I possibly would not necessarily hang that any higher.

    Anyway, that’s all only speculation, who knows...
