10/3 Auction is Being Delayed

10/3 Auction is Being Delayed

Fellow stamp enthusiasts,
Unfortunately, we are going to delay our auction originally scheduled for this Sunday Oct. 3rd.  We are hopeful to have a positive update soon with a new date and time.  
The server provider (Sandhills Global) that is used by our auction software company (Auctionflex – Hibid platform) has had a ransomware cyber attack.  All we really know at this point is that a huge number of servers are down. We don’t have an estimated time for return.  Your personal data and all of the auction backend data (lot info, photos, etc) is secure but the actual bidding webpage has been hacked and effectively ‘turned off’.
We are not happy about this and have no direct control over the resolution.  With limited information available, we are delaying the auction but don’t have a firm date yet.  Ideally we’ll run this auction next weekend and all future auctions will continue on with their existing planned schedules.      
We will post updates on our website in the blog section (our own hosted website evstamps.com is secure and available) as we know more and have any updates.  
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we’ll get through this and get back to stamp auctions as soon as possible.
Heath & Jonathan
