Sorry if the forum has been unavailable lately, the virus came back to haunt me over Christmas and needed cleaning out once again. All back to normal now getting used to this it doesn't take long to fix now!!

How does the virus get into the forum?
Is it via a member?
And -what is wrong with these people!!

I think its something left behind from the last time. I have just updated the forum from version 1.1.10 to 1.1.11 and the virus came back following this upgrade. The support forum seem to think that it was a file left from the previous virus which I thought I cleared out in July. Still I deleted all files this time and completed a full re-install and scanned the forum using a tool provided by the SMF support so fingers crossed.

I have another problem though, this all started when I noticed an increase in error messages in admin. The error messages show me when banned users try to log-in when members forget their passwords and general errors. I noticed one particular IP address coming up regulary in this so I banned it! Well now this Russian Guest (I can tell they are Russian by the IP address) is trying to view the forum every 15 seconds or so and creating an error message as a banned user every time they do. I am in touch with SMF support about how I can ban this IP address without creating hundreds of error messages, they have given me one option but I need to go away and find out how to implement.

We will get the b@st@rds in the end. I just wish they would leave us alone they have nothing to gain by keep attacking an innocent friendly forum like ours.

Damn Russki's hacked my site too bigtime.
I did not notice anything offline here and have even been sad enough to log in every day over Christmas!!

All back up and running. In blocking the Russian IP I managed to block everyone else as well including myself  :'(.

Never mind the cold war is back and Rusky is now blocked!!

Now I know how to do it I can block anyone so watch out lol ;)

Happy New Year

Lets hope it's a Happy New Year and Virus free 2010 for this Forum - Thanks again for your efforts 2SanStef,
it is appreciated by the growing community you helped to create here.
We have all made good friends for life by using your site, met people in Corfu, and hope to include you in that as well!

It would be great to bump into you one day in San Stefanos -
I would love to buy you guys a beer or wine to thank you for the pleasure you have brought to us and the many members on this Forum.

And this Forum is different because of the light hearted fun and banter, you just don't get in any of the others!
Thanks again - I understand the hard work you put in to keep us happy! (and some difficult decisions you have to make on our behalf!).
Have a great 2010 - and don't let those nasty Ruskies get you down!!
Happy Days in Agios Stefanos, Avliotes, Corfu!! TonyCo1
