Bad news for our forum
« on: May 12, 2009, 04:38:13 PM »
I have found out the reason for the large number of error messages and the missing avatars and it ain't good. Some cyberbastard has hacked our forum and injected code into the files. This means that I need to completly re-install the forum on to the server and set it up again. Once I have done so avatars will be disabled until a software patch is available to remove this vulnerability.

Sorry guys you can keep on posting ftb and hopefully I won't lose all your data? but don't be suprised if we are off line for a few days.

If only I could get my hands on them I would...................well you know!


Its our 10th time here and we will be coming back again very soon!" 8)

Why do people get such pleasure out of doing things like that.
Zoe if I was you just make sure your antivirus is up to date just to be on the safe side. You never know what such people will get up to next. >:(

Jules you do those little Merchant Bankers an injustice............ They are COMPETENT MORONS they have their Idiocy down to a fine art form. I think it is fair to say they have passed their DOPE test with flying colours... Pity they aren't BLACK & BLUE fading over time to a Violent PURPLE  [/color) before fading to a shade only to be described as BILE YELLOW. 
They live up to the stereotype of this day and age... If they want something someone else has they go and steal it....If they don't want it they smash it. Pick up the paper today and two people murdered for asking folk to be quiet. To me exactly the same ME ME ME motivation that too many people in Britain possess!           Rant Over !

how completely senseless!

don, you should start a political party. I suspect a lot of us would vote for you! It seems like we all agree with you on the idiot who has done this.(and just think of the expenses you could claim!)
