    Forum Restored!

    Dear loyal WABbits,

    As you can see, our own personal team of guardian angels and sugar daddies at Rochen have restored the board to working order. A HUGE thank you to Team Rochen for their hard work and generosity!!

    There are of course still a few issues left to fix. The priority was to fix the core issues first, and that they have done magnificently.

    At the moment, we have identified the following issues:

    1. Some attachments/file uploads have been lost - Unfortunately whatever was lost is likely lost for good.

    2. Smilies are not working.

    3. WAB Logo on the home page is not displaying

    4. Post "Likes" function is still missing

    As you find other errors or functions missing or not working properly, please post on this thread.

    Welcome back!

    Real treat to see WAB back up again.

    Plenty happening in the world, seems criminal that WAB doesn't get its say...

    Glad to see the WAB and our Battleship Board up and running again!!! If anyone has an answer as to what caused the crash (I've heard rumors...) please post it!

    In a nutshell, security gaps in our version of vBulletin inevitably allowed phishing attacks to occur, which in turn caused our account with vBulletin to be suspended.

    The good news is, we've not only been unsuspended, but our software version and security protocols have been thoroughly updated.

    Re; the phishing attacks, any idea of the source/intentions? Just curious - did they get WABERS email account details for instance?

    No idea of source, the intention was likely just the usual site hijacking to send out spam. We do know that it wasn't a WAB-specific targeted malicious attack.

    No information of our private information being breached, although not likely.
