KNOWN ISSUE: Change date incorrect for small subset of Hubs ~7/17

    Hey there! Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place. Three of my hubs, all four to five months old, suddenly say that I updated them 9 days ago. The problem is that I haven't done anything to these hubs recently! I've taken a quick glance over them and there does not appear to be any changes, like I'm being hacked. I'm going to change my password just for good measure. Is this just some little technical bug I shouldn't worry about, or am I possibly in big trouble?

      We are not aware of any issue that would result in your Hubs being updated.
      Changing your password seems like a good measure to take.
      Do you notice any specific changes in your Hubs?
      When was the last time you logged in?

        There does not appear to be any changes at all to my Hubs. I've been signed in several times a day, and for very long periods, during the past few days because I've been publishing and commenting. I also sign in at least once everyday even if I'm not going to do anything. There is nothing suspicious showing up on my activity feed. The only difference is that the dates of these three hubs, both on my profile and within my account page show that they were "Last Updated" 9 days ago.  There doesn't appear to be any shenanigans anywhere else within by account either. I don't really know what to think, but I doubt this is the end of the world.

          OK, I am almost 100% sure that this was just a simply site quirk. I just reread all three of my Hubs and nothing is out of place. Furthermore, I just realized that nothing has at all changed in the Featured status of these Hubs; and, unless I am mistaken, they would have had to go through the pending quality assessment if they really had been updated.

          Ok.  I will monitor this thread, so please let me know if you see anything else that appears off!

      I just wanted to give you an update.
      I have confirmed with our engineers that there was, indeed, a bug early last week that affected the changed date, but only for a small subset of Hubs.
      So the update change you saw was a system issue and not due to any unauthorized access to your account.

        Well, talk about a way for me to feel special! I can't win the lottery but I managed to be a part of this sad But thank goodness it was just a system error. Thank you so much Matthew for the attention you've given this today smile

    Perhaps someone posted a comment, that might count as an update?

      Well, I haven't had any new comments on those Hubs lately. I don't really know, or care, what caused it, just so long as my account isn't being compromised, and it doesn't look like it is smile Thank you for your suggestion smile
