Vulnerability in SiteStudio investigated by my Hosting Service
A few weeks ago my bank contacted me because someone had captured my credit card number and was using it in another state. This is a card that I open with the specific purpose of purchasing a theme and paying for my hosting service.
I immediately contacted my hosting service and they promised to do an investigation. Two weeks later I receive this email:
Important Please Read
We recently contacted you regarding a potential vulnerability
identified within SiteStudio. In order to protect the security of your

we have deemed it necessary to take the following pro-active measures

Once again, we apologize for this inconvenience and we thank you for

I took out all the personal stuff, but I wanted to alert you all that there might be a problem when purchasing themes on your site. I hope this is resolved soon and I look forward to making a new purchase in the coming weeks.
