Mike Reyno Posted November 29, 2012 Report Share Posted November 29, 2012 After a very long delay, I am happy to announce that our forums are FINALLY back in operation. As some of you are aware, the Vertical website was compromised about a month ago. After weeks of investigating, we discovered several vulnerabilities in the software that was being used for the forums. It was those vulnerabilities that allowed hackers to infiltrate the Vertical site. But it wasn't just Vertical they hit. Hackers managed to infiltrate thousands of websites around the world using the same software. Not only have we changed the software that we are using for the forums, we have also been able to implement additional security features that will ensure that this does not happen again in the future. This obviously took much longer to implement within the Vertical website than what we had originally planned for. But, we wanted to be sure that we were able to mitigate from future cyber attacks on the site. I apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused our forum members. But it was a necessary inconvenience in order to ensure the continued security of the Vertical website. Your patience is greatly appreciated. Should anyone wish to contact me, or have questions, please feel free to send me a PM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Mike Reyno Publisher 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
