Hi all,

Well...it has been nearly two weeks since we went down. You will find that some information, posts, images, memberships and so on, are gone. This is the result of the age of the backup used. All the same, we are back on the air.

The following message that has been posted for the last week, pretty much sums it up.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the course of the last couple of weeks, we have experienced a number of assaults by individuals bent on contaminating the computers of our many members and guests. They did so by finding vulnerabilities within the programs employed by the Record Collectors Guild and carried out exploits such as SQL injection and Cross-site scripting.

In a last ditch effort, we made an attempt to extract the specific threat code from our files and database. Ultimately, due to the thousands of pages of PHP, HTML and SQL available, we were unsuccessful in our efforts.

We are therefore deleting every file, folder and SQL database and starting over from square one. We will then begin immediately to install the most up-to-date CMS and message board available.

We don't have an exact date of completion, but any body that has been around long enough knows that the Guild does not waste time getting our show on the road.

So, give us a little time then check back. You can count on us to return.

Absolutely best regards,
Staff of the Record Collectors Guild

Not much more can be said but sorry about all that!!!

Jeff

p.s. Please let me know of any problem areas spotted. Thanks!

Glad that it's back up and running. Too bad that so many posts had to be lost.

Thanks so much for all your work to get the place back up.

Man this has been tough. It's almost as bad as when they closed Best Butt for renovations. Laughing

Well i'm off to Niagara Falls tomorrow, so i'll see you in a couple days. Very Happy
