Do not give it to much attention. That is always the best policy.
Sticking your head in the sand and making believe nothing happened is never a good policy. IMHO

Guys,

I'm also still waiting for a detailed explanation of what actually took place. All I know is that the scum took advantange of a vulnerability in SMF 1.1.12 (that was installed on the server). Kubecj (our web admin) is out of the country but we were able to have him fix the issue yesterday late night. He should be coming home tonight so I hope I (and you, too) will get a satisfactory explanation soon.

Thanks
Vlk

Hi bob3160,

I did not mean that there should not be an analysis of the facts to better prevent this for the future, of course that is appropriate. I just meant to stay do not make it bigger than it is, because the people that do these things do this just because of that reason. That was all that I meant to say in my previous posting.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
