Re: Site Security
- Dear NSTC,
Thanks so much for your kindness. Sometime back on a television newscast the anchor stated that science sites around the world were being targeted by the bad guys. They are either bad guys or have too much time on their hands.
Once again I must say the site is very professional and appears to contain great information.

Someone had hacked into our website and was posting malware. We can now reassure all those who regularly access our site that they can safely continue to enjoy their online NSTC experience. Any other comments and suggestions will be really welcome.
