Pasadena News Now, the daily email edition of Pasadena Now’s top stories normally published at daily 7 a.m., will not be issued on Sunday, June 18, 2017, unless significant news developments occur which require its issuance, publisher James Macpherson announced.
Instead, he said, back-end systems maintenance related to site programming will be undertaken to improve site reliability and security, in the face of a recent increase in hacking attempts into the website.
That programming will prevent the regular preparation of Pasadena News Now but only for the one day, he said.
“In a city where news never stops, it’s not easy to take the time ‘stop and take a step back’ for site upgrades,” he said “but in the case, it is imperative we take additional steps to secure our site from malicious attacks.”
Pasadena News Now will resume publication on Monday, June 19, 2017.
Macpherson added that the website itself will remain accessible and be updated normally. All social media accounts will remain unaffected.
