Thanks for all your hard work, David ;)

Is there any way to find out who the hacker is?
(I'm not very knowledgeable about these things.)

Just one thing - the clock is now 2 hours ahead, but I'm sure we can cope with that ;)

Edit: All ok now  ;)

After the hacker attacks the only way I could get the forum back up and running cleanly was to make a clean install of the basic forum and then attach the current database to it....Thats why all the mods are missing such as the gallery and the favourite players fields etc....I will try and get it all back up again as soon as I get the chance...I have lots on at the mo at work but hopefully it will calm down soon and give me some time to sort it out again :)

At least we still have the site now - no hacking for last couple of weeks  ;)

Thanks all...it's driving me nuts now  >:(

Sorry for all the downtime....I think I made a mistake in not realising how severe the damage was the first time of the three recently and should have had the server OS reinstalled sooner....But we are back now and will keep soldiering on ! :) Thanks for all the support :)

I'll try not to :) Sadly it looks like a widespread server root level attack and it's affecting lots of servers around the world...And even more sadly it doesn't look like anyone has a definite solution yet...So if the site goes down again I will try and get it back up as soon as possible !

Maybe tell the USA that the hacker is practising before having a go at the Pentagon, White House, CIA, NSA and FBI?

Bet they'll find him then  ;D

Yeah, I reckon the fat fryer method in the very first episode is the way to eliminate the threat.
