Ok, thanks for your reply. Would have been useful if that could have been mentioned in the main post.Paul wrote:We are still working as hard as possible to get them back up.Dragosvr92 wrote:Soo... Why is area51 and the tracker etc still down? O-o
It is however a criminal offence as it constitutes unauthorised access to an account that is not owned by the hackers.advocatus wrote:Using a compromised password isn't hacking.Alien_Time wrote:It is a shame hackers do what they do.
It is hacking if you're aware of that and using such password.advocatus wrote:Using a compromised password isn't hacking.
strongly agree with quoted msg......Alien_Time wrote:You are kidding right... So you expect 400,000 users whose details were compromised to visit phpbb site to see the update and then realise "hey, my details have been comprised!" Seriously, this is ridiculous... Its like saying, we put the update on our site and if you dont see it, if your problem. The reality is, when your server was compromised, its all users problem too and they deserve to be notified and not just a blog post on our site and expect everyone to come and see it automatically. Thats the point I am trying to make...Mick wrote:There were updates published during the down week, what more information do you need?
When Sony was hacked, they emailed every users (million of them) to let them know their details might have been compromised and asked them to immediately change their password used on other sites. Okay forget about Sony, last week 2 other Joomla sites got hacked and they straight emailed their 100,000 users and advised them to take precautions. They didint go, 'hey, my server was down so how can I email!" or 'didnt you read our posts?". This goes to say, how serious do you value your users and I am utterly disppointed. And you as a team member stating 'what more do you want' just justifies my disappointment more.
Anyhow, I am gonna end it here since I've said why I am unhappy..

It isn't. Not sure how you've come to this conclusion... The fact that I said the mail server has limited resources in no way means that it's the same server as everything else.developer11 wrote:the one with mailserver being on the same machine as everything else.....

All other sites are slowly being worked on and will hopefully be up soon. The holidays are slowing things down considerably unfortunately.Marshalrusty wrote:Additional components of phpBB.com will be coming online within the next few days.
