Something seriously got F'd up on the site in the past 24 hours.....5 years of attachments - gone.  :banghead:   ...for unknown reasons.  :mad:

I'm pulling my hair out trying to get them restored - but for now, you will notice attachments in posts prior to 10/24 are missing from all the way to day 1.

Just thought I'd let you guys know I am aware of it and working on getting them back.

I was gonna ask about so many missing avatars.  That explains a lot.  :thumbdown:

Hope you're able to restore them.

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

soo....all the attachments are back.

So what happened was the software that i was using for the old SCJB store had a vulnerability and someone exploited it. They set up a shell and deleted the entire contents of the attachments folder. So every picture anyone had ever uploaded to the site in the past 5 years - GONE. 3 gigs of data...GONE. I called my host who does weekly backups of my site, but the backup was run only a few hours before i called and the only backup they had ran after the directory had been cleaned out - I was screwed.

About 2 years ago I set up synchronize this site to a shell account nightly. This was costing me about $50 to do. Times got tough and I cancelled the service.

I was desperate and I decided to see if by chance the shell account was still active and sure as shit it was - and still synchronizing actively.  The shell was only a 100gig shell....and it had well over 175gigs in it. Obviously no one is watching it nor has audited my account.....so I cleaned it up and I will just continue to use it.

I was able to pull the 3gig folder and get it transferred back....and the old store's vulnerability has been removed as well.......and we're back online - the last 24 hours has been hell.

surprised someone expoited these forums, as its not very "mainstream", ie: vbuletin, phorum, etc...  is this a shared hosting server?  i hate it when someone elses site gets exploited and then they run a search for all writeable dir's by the httpd/apache user and then spread into those. 


$50 for a shell?  thats more than i pay for one of my dedi's...


ps if you ever need hosting (i know touchy subject) i have pleeenty of bandwidth.

Its a vps....and i get hammered on all day and night by hackers. I run snort so i see it all....my ssh gets raped nightly by china. This site gets indexed by china 24/7...but this was some american based kiddy hacker group. I got nothin but respect for them, just with they would channel that energy into graffiti or drugs.....kids these days lol....i normally am on top of the updates and security news for the software i run on the servers (both) but i have been letting the store go because ive been intending on replacing it for a long time now.....procrastination won that battle....and the 100g shell was indeed pricey thus why i cut it off.

Thanks for the offer for server space but i used "borrowed" server space once...no offense but never again. I am happy with my current host...the last one was a joke. This one time the server rack caught on fire....haha....Things have gotten much smoother around here since the switch.
