November 17, 2020 – On November 16, the web site hosting provider with whom Avitar contracts to host Avitar’s web sites was the victim of a coordinated external campaign. The provider immediately took the limited number of impacted sites offline. Subsequently they took their entire system of web sites, including Avitar’s, offline as a precaution. The provider’s infrastructure and security teams are working to restore the sites to full capacity. At this time they do not have an estimate of when service will be restored.
It is worth noting that no credit card or payment information — whether for property tax payments made on the Tax Collect Internet Kiosk or for Assessing Internet Kiosk subscriptions — is ever maintained on any of Avitar’s servers.
