A mail which they sent to their customers:

Dear User,

Greetings of the Day!!

As part of our constant endeavor to bring the best in class service to our most valued customers, we are making an effort to secure web hosting services @ Net4, by restricting usage of certain vulnerable content types (specific file extensions) from being served by our web hosts.

On account of this, you would not be able to upload the list of extensions mentioned below to any of our web hosts effective 02nd February 2006, be it shared (or) split (or) dedicated hosting. Further, files with such extensions would be removed from our web hosts by 20th February 2006.

In effect to this action, if you have uploaded content with such file extensions earlier, and you are worried (or) feel that this might in some or the other way affect the services rendered to you, kindly get in touch with our helpdesk to find a suitable remediation in order to avoid any kind of disruption to services. Any request for assistance in this regard necessarily needs to be looked at, before 20th February 2006.

Did I post it in the wrong forum? It's apparently true and I had no choice but to put it here.

I think posting it in this forum was a nice way of highlighting the irony of the whole situation :)
