The venerable nudist web site has been offline for several weeks now with only this message greeting visitors to the site.
WEBSITE UNAVAILABLE TODAY
Due to technical difficulties, our website is currently down.
Please try back in a few days. We are working to resolve the issue, and to keep your data safe.
A long nudist/naturist who I believe is a member of the site has tweeted he has received an extortion email from a group that hacked a web site and wants money to secure his data and personal information. There is no indication at this time that the sites are the same. Having been a member on Nudist Club House I have been concerned in the past that the site was using outdated software that might be vulnerable to hacking. No communication has been issued by Nudist Club House as to the nature of the problem keeping its users data safe.
This raises again the issue of security and privacy in a world of online communication. Naturist site need to work hard to keep software up to date and be vigilant about addressing security alerts that arise.
Members of Nudist Club House are encouraged to comment and share any insights into the problem.
