Hi, a few weeks ago we discovered a suspicious website that is an almost identical clone of our official site's html templates.
Upon a brief analysis of the copy site's html code, we discovered that indeed much of the heading tags, widths and description texts have been directly copied and pasted into the site. As someone not too familiar with HTML and CSS coding, I am just wondering if we need to worry about the risk of a security breach or if this Russian site simply inspected our code and copied it.

There are no security implications to ripping off your sweet template, as the Gestalt Gallery has.
WebHook is a one way way publishing system, and only has two ways to get into a position to manipulate the database from which the publishing occurs. The primary method is through the CMS. The CMS is password protected with your WebHook credentials. The other method would be by using a combination of the Firebase secret in your
.firebase.conf file, along with the webhook site name to authenticate against Firebase, and manipulate the data you've created through your CMS.
Neither of those secrets are made public through the publishing process, unless you have decided to add them to your site. So I imagine you are quite alright.
