Synyster Gates is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Guitar Interactive Magazine, issue 58.
Guitar Interactive is a digital magazine, which you can read for free through their website. Head over there now to read their interview with Synyster Gates. Included in the article is a video interview with Synyster Gates, which you can also watch here.
We feel that it’s important Syn Gates School users get an update from us on a recent site security situation. We have an investigation underway and do not have the answer to every question.
Upon recent routine server maintenance, we’ learned that a hacker accessed SynGates.com in May 2018. As soon as we learned of the attack, we took down the site, shut down all access and launched an investigation as well as hiring a cybersecurity audit from a 3rd party. As of yet, we don’t know exactly what information and in what format the hacker could have taken.
We strongly recommend anyone who has an account on SynGates.com change their passwords on other sites. While common, it is bad practice to re-use the same password/email combo on multiple websites. Please change your passwords and please do not re-use the same password.
We also recommend that you check for your email address here. Lastly, we suggest using a password manager like 1 Password or LastPass.
Once we are satisfied that the SGS is secure again, we’ll bring the site back up to normal (should be very soon).
Until then, we apologize to all of you affected by this attack. We’’re disappointed that this happened and are committed to doing everything we can to make certain it never happens again.
NOTE: This notice is for www.SynGates.com, our guitar school. The SGS Store is unaffected and safe.
