CSPro Users Forum Back Online

Postby Gregory Martin » July 15th, 2016, 11:33 am

I apologize to everyone that the forum was down for a month. There were hackers attacking the csprousers.org domain and it took some time to get things back online.

Thank you Greg for your determination to help Csprousers Community. Hackers will never be victorious. I think everybody must change theirs password, doesn't?

I don't think so. They didn't get access to any databases (as far as I know), but instead just probed the system and caused such a significant number of hits that the website service provider took down the site.

Thank you so much Gregory Martin.
This forum is very useful to all members of CSPro Community.
It´s good to know is back online again.

Just as a comment:
I noticed that there were been posted a lot of messages like promotions or like "spam" (things not related to CSPro) during months before the forum site crashed. Does it was due to those hackers ? or that content was your consent (on your permission) ?
Just asking. Because it was a little bit strange for me that kind of content out of CSPro context.

Again, Thank you so much to you, to all the CSPro Team and CSPro Community.
Regards from Guatemala.
P.D. say Josh Hi, from me.

As part of upgrading the forum software, phpBB, to the newest release, I added some measures that should prevent the spammers from sending us messages about gold, video games, and whatever else they were sending us.

I guess that I should be happy that they think that the CSPro Users community is important enough to spam! :D
