Arrow We're back! - 09-20-2013

I wanted to thank everyone for their patience. We experienced a few issues with the site that caused the down time. They are as follows:
  • Running Plugins that allow hackers/script kiddies in
  • Lack of support resources - Linux, VB admins, etc.

So what happened was we had a plugin running, and the hacker ran something against that injected code in our db. So I disabled the site immediately to protect our members and their data.

The second issue was, this happened when Steve and I were both slammed at work to the point where we had no free time to focus on purging the code from the site.

So I figured it was time to re-evaluate hosting options, and see if we can find a ISP that knows Linux, and more specifically, Vbulliten. Well after spending some time on it, I found one that does just that, and they have VB developers on staff that can help us out (for a fee). The ISP we have now has been super responsive and helpful, and they take care of patching and backups for us which is a big plus vs. our old ISP.

For now our plugins are disabled till I determine which ones are safe to run. As far as researching that, I will start another thread on it shortly.

It did come at a significant cost though to fix it, but we are in better shape.

Again thanks for your patience, and enjoy the forums.

Regards,

Todd

Thanks for your hard work. Nothing like the "volunteer" work taking over all your time. Been there, done that.

So, thanks again!

Thanks for everyone's hard work keeping the site up!

Now for those who have not contributed -- do it now! This site is not supported by advertisers and is all volunteer, including the costs. I try to kick in some periodically to show my support and will do so again because I know it had to cost Todd some personal cash to get the site fixed.


Okay, looks like we have to wait to donate to support the site. I just tried using the "donate" button on the first page and got a message saying it is disabled for now. So as soon as it is enabled be sure to help support the Collective!


Now with twin turbo 3.5LV6.
Screw you photobucket! I'm not going to pay you to now use my own pictures
