Hacking Attempt.......
« on: April 04, 2019, 09:01:33 AM »
....... the site said since about 9am this morning.  :snivel:

Nobody actually got in properly and there was no data breach or anything, but our server was down for a few hours.

The host has now fixed it and says we have lost nothing.  :coffeeread:

They are still looking into the actual details. Seems whatever happened broke the Apache on the server.

It was Russia!  :laugh:

I actually tried to check RUA this morning and noticed the site was down. Glad no damage was done.

We have twice daily off site backups, so even if wiped out, we can re-emerge without too much difficulty.

Just some amateurs , if they want your info they will get it!

But there is no value here to steal, usually they want your database , that is worth the money. Cant remember who was saying here yesterday about NOT wanting their info sold on the internet. Well it is stolen and sold in any case wether you want it or not. Ukraine is full of professional hackers who regularly do all the dating sites then sell the data base on, dream Singles, UAdreams  and many more, you can buy the whole  customer 250,000 list for $2000 they will sell over and over again or by segment. all the small dating sites lists are available ..I have a friend in Ukraine who does it for a career , he stole my web site ten years ago and left a random note.. :laugh:  Some sites are easy some are hard , some times it can take several guys working together for a few weeks to crack a big site, nothing is safe..

Probably the same for every other type of business..

Good to know the site is alive again!  :thumbsup:

When I saw "hacking attempt" notification this morning, I have actually blamed it on my pre-historic PC  :chuckle:

Is it possible since we've had no recent Wiz rants and Moby has behaved that the attempted hacking is the result?

Was reviewing IT and physical security briefings at work.  DoS attacks are common.  I think the Equifax intrusion a while back was due to not having Apache updated.  :duh: The CEO just a few months previously spoke at a conference meeting saying how using all of that credit information that they have was going to bring big bucks to the company and a bright future was on the horizon.  Then he had to abruptly bail out of there.   :ROFL:

Wiz, It is obvious your ignorance extends to literature. I will assume that the analogy to the protagonist of The Idiot, is a compliment.

So thanks you dumb Greek.

Sorry I assumed this thread was in Area 51.

That Wiz can only communicate his diarrhea from the sphincter under his nose is sadly the problem for the moderators.

Asshole - blah blah. Not productive, guys.

Yes, can we not wind Wiz up please, we dont need more ranting about Jews. I was two hours [or more] on the phone to fix the hacking malarkey - even with our pretty decent host it took 6-7 hours total to get it sorted. Can we try to be normal for the next two or three weeks while I am in China please? Failing which, please PM Sparky, BB, Chris, Herrie or Shakespear to do the needful.  :thumbsup:
