Dear Venomland Members and Friends, Venomland is a little more than 6 years old now and by far the biggest Hot Snake community on the Planet! We want to thank all of you who made Venomland the leading Board. We are also very thankful to our Moderators and Admins for years of hard work. Now, it is time to move on. I have been thinking how to proceed and what to do with our beloved board as we reach a size, that we need to make drastic changes to secure the future of our community. As of now, Venomland is hosted by a free (well mostly free) hosting service. That was good for the first years but now we need to find a new way to run our forum. I have spend hundreds of Dollars over the years to keep Venomland up and running, and i have done so with pleasure. Now, we need your help! We need to come up with several thousand dollars for our Venomland 2.0 project, which i frankly cant pay for any longer by myself. So Venomland is asking his Friends and Members for the first time for their financial Support. Please help to keep Venomland alive, and let us move on to a new, better Portal in the Future! Every Dollar is helping us a great deal. I know, its hard times for everyone, but please spare a few Dollar for our community. If you have only 10 Dollars to spare, we are grateful, if it is more, it would be awesome. We are planning to develop a very new Venomland, with real community functions, a forum like you are already loving it and a real (online) Hot Snake Magazin. Also, there will be download areas for scientific papers, Wallpapers and more. Again folks, we can only do that if you all help. Please send me a Private Message if you want to keep Venomland alive, i will provide you with the details on how to donate Money. For now, we can accept money from creditcards via skrill (please google it, its a free service - account-details will be forwarded to you) and paypal. All the best, and for a (hopefully) nice future of our Board. Mario

PostSubject: Damaged Venomland Database   Thu 3 Nov - 23:45

Hello Members,

As some of you noticed, we had problems with our Database during an hacker attack on Venomland today..
I was able to get the Forum back running, but unfortunately, we have lost all the postings after October 30, afternoon as our Backup was last done by then!

We are still working with Forum Motion together to find out where the Attack came from, and i will keep everyone updated on the progress..

We apologize for the inconvenience!


Mario

Hello,

In my forum in Greece I always have backup of the forum the provider also (IPB forums).
I hope everything to go well.

If you are on free hosting forum provider you will have serious problems like I had in the past.
If something goes wrong Google cache can give you most of the older posts!

With the best Regards,
George Faitatzoglou.

Wondering about the reason to hack a forum like that here.
Everything what is posted and now missing can and should be posted again of course.
Let us know when and how we can help to clear things up .
Good Luck Mod´s,
Ralph

I think the forum is under attack again at this moment. Topics are vanishing fast. Complete subforums are empty now where a few minutes ago they where still present

are there no security updates of extra plugins to improve the security?
Cause is we are attacked by hackers, they sure as hell can read all the messages and personal data from users!

perhaps worth a look?: http://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/modifications/security-5/sid_bbf82e419719504f2e7f4e1fa9a85868
