My antivirus said it blocked an attack when I tried to go to the site at 6:00am CDT US. Must be a little hot over there

They got my email address as well, Heinrich Himmler has been sending me porn! When I click on the details, I see many different email addresses that this crap is being sent to. Some are familiar guys from the club.

I just tried to go on their forum & my Webroot showed me a caution page as well!

God bless
Bill

It is back up. Jeff was on it this AM, getting things cleared up.

"We got hacked last night... AGAIN. This time they took control of everything, website, forum, the works.
Thankfully, my backup system is on the mark and works like a charm now.

I caught it at 4AM today and got everything back. Last thing I want to have is a bunch of cranky, crusty, old retired dudes sitting down to their fresh-brewed coffee and not able to get in to their favorite porn... errr Forum site.

I think I got all the posts restored up through last night. If something is missing, what you see is the best I could do.

Ok, back to sleep. Yawn.

Jeff"

I was able to get on the forum yesterday until the afternoon. From then through a few minutes ago, my Webroot Security says NOT to visit because it is a high risk!

God Bless

Yesterday afternoon at 12:20 my Norton security software sent up a intrusion attempt red flag for the MTFCA site when I tried to log on. It listed it as (Web Attach: Fake Tech Support Domains 2)


It would be great if someone could post here when the problem is resolved and the site comes back on line.


This never happened with the old site software. Some times NEW isn't necessarily better!!! I miss the old forum format

Looks like it just got hit again. It was working Yesterday afternoon and this morning but about 6:44 AM it things stopped working. Jeff mentioned some persistent hackers but they are watching for them night and day.

Recently I was getting all sorts of spam emails wanting me to open links. Once I stopped trying to open the MTFCA site the spam totally stopped. Coincidence??
