Press release

The pandemic is slowly ramping down in Montreal, and the city is slowly deconfining. However, deaths and new infections continue to affect the communities of which we are a part, and especially marginalized communities and working class neighbourhoods. The recent decisions by the government concerning the reopening of businesses and public spaces seem to us to be much more motivated by economic interests than concern for public health.

Press release

At the beginning of January, some clients of Koumbit were victims of attacks aiming to silence them by making their website inaccessible, leading to some network performance issues. First, we want to highlight that this type of attack does not involve any data leak.

Koumbit will be closed from the 23rd of December, 2019 through the 3rd of January, 2020 including the telephone support line. Happy Holidays to all!

Koumbit has done the updates related to today's security warning coming from the security team at Drupal.
