What a bummer, my condolences.

Was this a random attack? I can't see a group like this attracting very many enemies.

Personally, I think yes, it was a random attack. Vandalism. Wreaking havoc just because it's possible.

We'll get through it. It may take a few days... We appreciate everyone's support (not just financial, but the words of encouragement, and offers to help restore some of the content).

Some people are asking why this forum would be a target. The answer, it seems to me, has nothing to do with our subject of interest - FiberglassRV is just a site seen by many people which was possible to attack. I'm not taking it personally.. but I'm still mad.

As for restoring content, I'll give Michael whatever time he needs to get things to a whatever state is reachable, then see what makes sense to post. I don't have whole threads saved, but a few bits of information are available.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

What Mary said.

We've always said that it's the people that make this site so special, and you have all just reinforced that.

When I logged on Saturday morning and there was only two topics, I was . Even when I got my e-mail notification, it didn't really hit me until I arrived on the forum and it was all but empty. This morning -- well, it's starting to feel like home again.

Any idea who did this?

I took a very basic computer class a few years ago, and the instructor told us that hacking and viruses were perpetrated mainly by young white males--guys between 16 and 25 years old.

Could someone who was a member of the board have joined just to hack his way inside the site?

Wish we did....I've got somethings I've picked up in my backyard I'd like to throw at 'em.

Poops for the poop.

ohh gee golly... I've been off the forum for a long time, had too much on my plate, work and family, so hadn't been aware of this. It sucks!

But everyone is right on the mark, FGRV will return, better than it was before.

Hang in there, Michael!

You bet, we’ll be working to make it better and rebuild this community.

As you can see, I’m making some changes. Please note MY registration change. I will no longer be using “Michael”.

thanks, webguy... er, Mike... oh heck.... whatever we call you, it's still with much respect and affection! One would have to really love FGRV and computers, to go to the length you've done.

I was late in hearing about the damage. However, it looks as if the recovery is coming along. Please let us know if we can do anything, I know you have your work cut out.

I have been working to change the way the backend Admin works and make it more secure. Also I’ve been working to get the new software, security systems, and automated backup systems in place.

In addition, I have been doing a lot of research on software, security strategies, hacks and fixes.

The Moderators and other Admin have been fantastic at solving current issues and helping me with tons of recovery items. They really deserve a big hand.

Also, I want to thank all of you who have stepped up to the plate by posting and making me feel really encouraged.

You guys/gals are terriffic.

Mike,
I was curious about the progress, thanks for the update.
Personal thanks to all those involved...., administrators, moderators, spouses and other "unsung hero's".
Mike, thanks again for not only using you computer knowledge to keep FGRV afloat, but spending the hours behind the scenes to advance your education to improve the quality of the site.

Kurt & Ann K.

Dear Hackers,

What goes around comes around. Maybe you will remember this the day it comes around to you.
