And we’re back!


The In the Library with the Lead Pipe board has been investigating the hacked/malware warnings related to the site and are pleased to report we’re in the clear!

Many thanks to @librarieshacked, who was able to pinpoint obfuscated code on the site. We’ve removed that and have passed the subsequent Google review.


Google currently still lists a warning, which we’re assuming is the “this may take a few hours” but we’re continuing to monitor.

Our host @ibiblio is also reporting similar problems with some of their other WordPress instances. Of note, they are “working to deploy software and configuration tools that will help us better isolate ibiblio-hosted collections from each other so that problems like this have lower impact in the future.”

Thanks to everyone who reported the issue to us!

The Lead Pipe Board
