Happy Holidays, there been Gremlins again..

Peace on earth goodwill towards all men and women..

Ahh the war I fight with hackers..

Thanks to DanM for pointing out to me what AVG was seeing.

It seems that the little program we use to display our pictures in this site had a vulnerability  that was discovered by Script Kiddies, and exploited it they did.  We were fortunate in that we weren’t attacked but the vector was there to be attacked.  Other Folks who use the “tinythmb” program were not so lucky.

I have taken steps in that our site is now being monitored 24/7 by “Code Garage” who not only scans our site daily, but also backs up our site daily as well.

Yeah it’s an added expense, but my time is worth money as well and trying to figure out where the problem is and who did it and how is a pain in my keester that I cannot afford now that I am working full-time and going to school full-time at night.

Anyways, I hope you have noticed a few more things are going on here as well.  I have done a bunch of updates to the forums “Scuttlebutt Forums” and the front end here.

I am gearing up for a major overhaul on the front end by the end of the year.

Not shooting willy nilly in the dark this time.

Anyhoo just thought I would give you all an update.

Happy Holidays.. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Festivus, And any other holiday you celebrate.  KWANZA is after Christmas..  I know my holidays..

D/C
