Thumbs down What's happened?

Hi Everyone,
It's been a rough week since Labor Day. We were hacked, and I've been fighting the hack for the week. We were one of a number of sites targeted by a group in a competition for the highest number of sites hacked. It included our home page as well as sub directories. They took over my hosting account and then proceeded to change and plant things into the website. I believe I have most all of it taken care of, but there may be more. I'm keeping close tabs on everything and doing frequent backups. The master passwords have been changed, but these guys are good, and that may not make a difference. There is no personal information at risk at this point as we don't store anything confidential on the system.

I'll keep you posted as this progresses. I think they got what they wanted, now they're moving on. I am starting an investigation into how they got in, and looking into if there is anything we can do to catch them.

Thanks for you patience.
Ct..

When people do things like this it really makes me mad. We're all busy enough just trying to work, take care of our kids, maintain our homes (& TrailManors ) as well as the many other things that people need to do.

Chris, I really appreciate your efforts to get the board back up and running again. I was amazed that it was operational tonight.

Thanks.

You got us back so fast? I was wondering if you would get us back AT ALL! Amazing work, Chris. Thanks!

Bill

I was really glad that we had current backups, and that they didn't get any of the data, just the files. It's been a great learning experience for sure. This is one of those times where I was outgunned, and it wouldn't have mattered what I did, they were going to one up it - which they did. Their deleting of the directories was a final stroke. I was glad that I found the trace to the site where they were bragging about it, so I knew that it was a random hit, not a disgruntled ex member.
Let me know if you see anything that's not quite right (other than the main page), and I'll go fix it. I'm leaving the "hacked" page up to acknowledge the hit - which is what this is all about.

Remember my friends, this is something that I committed to 10 years ago that I still hold dear. Next year we get to celebrate 10 years in existence. I'm working on how we're going to have some fun!

Thanks
Ct..
