AMP Website Is Now Restored
Alameda, Calif.--Alameda Municipal Power's website has been fully restored after a routine backup of the system caused it to go down yesterday. At no time was customer data at risk since it resides on a separate in-house secure server.
However, search engine listings for AMP continue to display the message "This site may be compromised." AMP is working with the search engines to clear this, but it may be several days before the message is removed. Search engines displayed this message after AMP's web site was compromised last week and external links were inserted within AMP's web pages. The links were found and immediately removed from the AMP website. No sensitive data was compromised as all customer data is located on a separate in-house secure server.
