    Guys, just a heads up...

    Following the hacking incident the other day, we've paid for a company who specialise in website security, protection and monitoring, to install a Firewall to protect us from any further attacks. This basically puts a layer of protection between our site and any hackers. It looks out for people trying to break into the site and stops them. In particular it stops people trying to exploit known vulnerabilities of websites like that used to inject the 'dumplings' thing the other day.

    This was essentially an 'SQL injection', see here if you're unaware what that is: https://www.acunetix.com/websitesecurity/sql-injection/

    However, when the Firewall is being installed you may experience a few hours of disruption to the forum, preventing access. In that respect, the work is scheduled for early one morning, around 7am, either Weds or Thurs this week, so please be aware of some possible disruption during that period.

    I'll also ping this message on the Noticeboard! Cheers

    Marco.
