Kewl L! Give the admins some time to figure out what happened and take measures to make sure it doesn't happen again. I hope some other ppls did the same!

Admin seems to have the situation under control, and all our old pics should be back up online by tomorrow. WooHoo!!

Excellent service by the DF guys once again.

Hope your Network is protected by Firewalls – The only thing I would be worried about is all the personal info on your servers ex: names, address, credit cards, etc…

Just to let everyone know...your credit card information is not stored on our servers. It is totally safe. And any information that IS stored on our servers is totally safe. When we got hacked, the hackers used a security bug in the Forum software to create a backdoor into the web directory so they could change website files. Thank goodness we were able to stop them before any real damage was done.

The DwarvenForge order system is run as a CGI program on the server which is in an area that no hacker can get to and is safe. Even the front page is a CGI program. The only thing hacker activity will ever affect, if they get through, is this forum page. We have upgraded all software and patches to the latest levels and have raised our awareness due to this vulnerabiltiy.

Hope this clears things up and your photos will be back online today. We want to make sure it's done right.

Thanks

Not trying to be derogatory <sp?> in any way, but I noticed the photos/pics are not back up, and the ability to attach pics is still not re-implimented. Has there been further problems, further hacking?

I only ask, as it was the pics in these forums that cemented my decision to purchase Dwarven Forge scenery, and I would hate for you guys to lose such an important peice of free advertisement, such as this forum's ability to host pics.

There is an explanation in the "What happened to the photos?" thread. Some software problem.

Hey everybody...here's another update on the Photos. Turns out it's a little trickier problem than we thought. Basically the new version of the software doesn't remember where the attachments are, so we need to rebuild the tables. We're just waiting for the phpBB people to get back to us and this stuff should be back up by Monday.

Again, Thanks for your patience and sorry for the delay.

Cool! Thanks for the updates.

And for the time being, let me give people a preview of what to expect when pics are working again.

I'm currently painting up two new kinds of terrain to add to DF. One is a Grendel Resin set of lava pools that look great with the caverns. The pools come in packs of two -- I've done one with red and orange lava, and the other with a glowing green acid/magic sludge. They look very cool, the DF caverns really set them off nicely and the two look made for each other.

I'm also working on a Pegasus Hobbies product called "Platformer" which is basically a cheap terrain set, a set of plastic sprues from which you assemble ladders, supports, ramps, and flat pieces that can be walls or floors. You snap them together to make a set of platforms and such, it's very cheap (i.e. wobbly and unstable) and very simple, but it looks neat. I think it might make for some cool additions to the Sci-fi setups, though I can't tell how versatile it will be. Still, with the SF stuff just getting started, it's nice to have things to spruce it up while we wait for expansions Beta, Gamma, and Delta.

So -- watch for pics of both of these once everything is up and running again.
