The forum is now functioning again however please be aware that due to the corruption of our backups, the last version we have is from mid January. Therefore unfortunatly all conversations have been lost from that date alongside anyone who registered. We apologise for this however it is something now out of our hands.
For the future we are setting up a backup system where-by the backups are stored on a seperate hard disk for security reasons. We are also working on locking down any potential security holes, this means there will unfortunatly be reduced functionality on the forum in terms of the ability to upload files and images.
This is a necessary precaution to reduce the change of this happening again.
The website is back up and functional but the forum still needs a bit of work. For those that missed today’s earlier message, the website was infected with a virus through an injection exploit. What this basically means is that anyone who visited the website since 2pm on Sunday may possibly have had a virus downloaded to their PC’s. Although the virus in question is known by Antivirus providers, it is still recommended that you run a full scan of your systems. I apologise for this happening, although it was out of my hands. Luckily I made regular backups of the database so nothing has been lost from either the forum or this homepage.
I need to check a few things with the forum database backup before having that set-up again so this may take some time although it will be functioning again by tomorrow evening. Once again, apologies for this inconvenience.
