    Wow! I've been on the forums most of the night (insomnia again) and they never even twitched. That's good! But it sucks that the site got hacked.

    Our server hosts, Inmotionhosting.com, had all their sites compromised this morning, including our dedicated machines. We're working on restoring service now. Fortunately we have no payment info stored on these machines, and all passwords are encrypted, so your data should be safe.

    My sites too, are hosted on inmotion. The fix was pretty easy though since he scripted something to replace /index files only. Thankfully it just meant restoring everything from an original Joomla install as everything is stored away in a DB.

    Everyone OK on CMON Chern?

    Everything is fine, but I'm super unhappy that dedicated server customers were addressed last. We'll see what Inmotion has to say on Monday about this mess, we got a dedicated server precisely because we didn't want to have vulnerabilities created by someone else.

    You can tell them that they will be feeling the fist of the DFB if it happens again as well Chern, I was in the middle of doing stuff and couldn't access it for most of the day!!!

    Tell me about it, I've been with this school a year (and therefore inmotion) and I have to say, they're pretty lame. 4 outages and hacked via their servers, not my site TWICE now. Very poor.

    What did that say Chern? ........ what did they say? (jumping up and down)!
    "we reach for the stars, forever looking to the heavens, our minds filled with wonder and the glory of the cosmic all; stretching the boundries of human knowledge and securing the solar system for the Human Species out there beyond the final frontier so one day our decendants will be as gods!
    You hold our hands so we don't blunder into things........and do the photo shop.

    And the Lord spake, saying, 'First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards Inmotion, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.'

    Well, I'm glad CMON's back. I was lost yesterday without it. lol! Chern, I hope you get everything worked out with the host. I know I'd be hot too. One idea, another large, very active forum I belong to has an announcement list folks can sign up for so if something happens they can get the word out about status updates to their subscribers. I'm just glad CMON is back.

    Try a system restore, you might get lucky. But back up your data first if you don't already do this regularly!
