Well, you've read the news post from Oct 1st by now. My webhost fixed the vulnerability so it cant happen again via the method the root-level attack was carried out. However, the attack did more than just wipe out files/folders with the word 'log' in them. It also overwrote some key files crucial to the board operating correctly.

I've restored those files, but some advanced functions I coded in are not present. When I get back home, I'll fix that, but at least for the time being, you can read/post here on the board again.

If dedicated web hosting wasnt so expensive, I'd go that route, but unfortunately I have to suffer with shared hosting, and that mmakes me and others the subject of attacks against other sites on the same server. Blah.
