Good to see you back Pete  >41<

Thanks Tony, next to no t.v. I can't envisage anything worse out here. A sign of the times I suppose.  :(

We're still having issues with hackers and the website is down at the moment. The hosts are restoring it to a previous version but realistically I think I may have to rebuild with different software and a much more secure anti-hacker system. So if it goes down again or looks a bit weird, it's me rebuilding it.
Cheers,
Sabrina

I was wondering - when hackers "mess things up", do they corrupt or delete any of the content?

Thank you Sabrina  >41< I'm glad you know what you're doing as I wouldn't have a clue   :)

It does make you wonder who would have a grudge against the website and forum  >48<

They put little bits of code into files which can lead the viewer to click on them and go to the hacker's website, whatever it may be. It's frustrating as more than 60 files have been corrupted so I suspect I'll have to start from scratch  :( >:(
Cheers,
Sabrina

Actually I'm paying someone to fix it. Less stress for me.  :(  It should then be cleansed of all nasties.  >24<
Cheers,
Sabrina

Good news, the boffins are working busily on cleaning up all the malware from the website and updating the software, and we should be back to normal later this week.  >24<
Cheers,
Sabrina
