Article Digest:
So, I just got back from my honeymoon and discovered that not only did we have one of our cars towed, but someone decided to "hack" my forums.

I'm in the process of trying to catch up on work, so this forums problem isn't going to be fixed for a little while.

Since both the comment engine and the forums are based on phpbb, and someone exploited a hole in phpbb, I've been forced to shut down both for the time being in order to preserve the rest of the website.

I do have the info backed up, but there's no point bringing them back online until I get a chance to update the forums with the appropriate patches. If anyone would like to point me in the right direction, feel free to e-mail me at cooking@cookingforengineers.com but I may not be able to respond immediately due to my work situation and general lack of free time.

phpbb does have a loophole. i'm not sure of any patches available for this. I run a web hosting business and i do feel well qualified with this subject. My recommendation would be to port over to a more secure forum system. I recommend invision board.

He never mentioned he had sex, just a honeymoon.
He'll pull it together, this happens from time to time. Which is one of the many reasons I don't have a forum. No time to take care of business.
I just had a slice of bacon.

I don't know if you have upgraded to the latest phpBB, but if you want someone to tell you how to fix it, it would certainly help to say what version you are currently on and what exploit was used.

Hi Michael, sorry to hear about the troubles. I just wanted to let you know that your website is very appreciated, despite what people who do such things make it seem.


And congrats on the marriage!

Gawd that's frustrating. Why do people have to be such colossal jerks???

Congrats on your nuptials. Hope you're as happy as my hubby and I are.
