As the subject line says, what the heck happened? I spoke with Scott on the phone last nught and he said the forum had been messed with and we had to make a new one? I hadn't visited in a few days, so all I know is here's a new forum, all our stuff since April is gone, and....what the heck is going on????

I've been browsing the posts and so far haven't found much of an explanation, it's as if everyone here already knows what happened and where we're at.

Is there a members-only section?

Where's the minutes?

Where's the roster?

Cruise Moab committee stuff?

Could someone please recap what happened and when?

TIA

Jeff - Basically the forum database got deleted by a turkish hacker. Our hosting company was supposed to be backing up or site nitely. That process broke (see New BB ) thread for their explanation and sorry ass applogy. My only backup was from April. Major mistake. Everything since then as far as posts go, is gone. Attachments and uploads are still in tact. We voted and decided to buy this software because it is very secure and I'm sick of HACKERS messin' with our old free and insecure software. That vote was on the old forum with a VERY old backup, since then I restored to the april back-up, so that version doesn't have the "here's what happened, please vote" thread anymore (though it is backed up). Matt bought it with our Paypal account, I installed and configured it, and Wes has been a HUGE help with administration. All in all about a 20 hour turn around from when we were hacked to when we went live with the new stuff.

My website was moved to a new server yesterday and last night someone from Israel tried to knock down the server. Denial of Service type attack but the server stayed up.

I always wonder why people choose to attack different sites. Your site seems completely friendly -- it's all about older vehicles, not some political agenda. Why would anyone think it worth targeting? Nice that they were unable to take you offline!
