2023 and NXLog - a review

It’s finally the holiday season, and we’re down to a skeleton staff here at NXLog. It’s nearly time for us to shut down our laptops, pick up a cup of hot chocolate (or mulled wine if we’re lucky), and get ready for a week or so of reading, relaxing, opening presents, perhaps coping with distant relatives, and all-around merry-making over the holiday period. So we hope you’ll forgive us if we keep this recap of 2023 succinct.

NXLog - 2022 in review

We’ve come to the end of 2022, and what a year it’s been. It was a year marked by war, economic toil, and addressing the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. Europe was immediately thrust into crisis in February when the Russia-Ukraine War began. Unfortunately, as an Eastern European-based company, many of our colleagues were directly affected by it. Then, more recently and in the United States especially, many tech companies began restructuring their organizations to deal with the looming economic problems that are forecast.

Responsible disclosure - Our encounter with Monero mining

On the 18th of March, we noticed some unusual activity on one of our servers we use for build automation. Further investigation revealed that an outside party had deployed a Monero miner. The server was immediately taken offline. There was no customer data stored on the server and we have since replaced all our private keys and secrets that might have been potentially compromised. After careful and thorough investigation of the incident, we decided to publish this announcement and share this news with our customers and users, hoping that it might serve as a lesson for others.
