  • Apologies for being offline today - we had a hacking attempt

    You will no doubt of noticed we were knocked offline this evening. This is unfortunate, but due to the quick actions of our host, they were able to shut things down before any serious damage was done.

    There is a 0day vulnerability in the software which runs the forum which someone decided to try and exploit. We actually had 2 attempts

    IP - - [10/Aug/2020:16:45:37 +0100] made a few attempts and seemingly left us alone
    IP - - [10/Aug/2020:18:06:08 +0100] was a bit more successful and managed to upload a malware file to the web server in order to attack the site and steal data

    10/Aug/2020:18:07:10 +0100 - our web host suspended the account on detecting the malware.

    You will notice that some functionality has been disabled, this should be temporary whilst patches become available.

    Thanks for your understanding
