CleaningTalk.com Back Online!

Well, it's been a rough evening/night.

Within the last two days two of my websites have been hacked. One was www.ContractorLinks.com and the other is a new online trade magazine I'm working on.

Anyways, I found out someone had a password that I used on this site and a few others... the ones being hacked. My goal was to change my passwords and get my sites as secure as possible. One of the issues on this site was that we were using an old copy of vBulletin so I decided to upgrade. The upgrade went very bad!

It took a while to fix but I found out my host had something configured wrong. It's been fixed now and we are back online

Thanks for your patience. These things are always frustrating.
Also, I'm sorry but a few posts may have been lost. At one point we had to restore a database that was a day old so if you lost a post it's not my trying to go after you.

Thanks again,
Nathan

We were down for about 7 hours so I'm sure a lot of people noticed. Like I said I also think we lost a few posts but what can you do.

I'm closing this thread and I removed some posts about a lawsuit between some people. The email I got was not connected to anyone on this site and I believe it was just someone trying to send a bit of hate mail.


You guys can fight your own battles... I'm not letting this site get in the middle of any lawsuits between members. In fact this is the first I've heard about it.

I will say that if you feel that a post is slander or an attack against you let me know and I will remove it just like always. Otherwise it has nothing to do with me.
