A future Delphi won’t download start page content from the Embarcadero site

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/04/05

The “Official statement” of Embarcadero about their recent hacks are in the form of comments on public messages mentioning the hacks, some asking to take discussions offline.

They forgot to comment on Delphi: disable or change your welcome page to not use the Embarcadero site (as that site has been hacked twice this weekend) « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff, so here is their comment from the G+ thread I posted:

FYI: Future versions will no longer have the banner pulled from the website on the start page.

Source: This weekend, the Embarcadero web site was hacked by AnonCoders. once…

I hope it will be the upcoming Delphi 10.1 Berlin version, but given their speed at responding to security threats, I won’t hold my breath.


PS: what a coincidence that I wrote this yesterday on G+:

I know of a few companies that could benefit from more openness.
