    Re: Apology to Mad Mechanics

    I already made a post at the other site and shed some light to this.

    My question though is this is an SMF security hole, or someone was given admin rights and he started banning half the population? Has it been fixed?? If you guys need an additional admin let me know, IT is what I do for a living. I got my own servers here in Philly, I do my own security and hardening of all equipment, and seriously I do not tolerate something like this on my end.

    Just a heads up, there should be a lot more intrusion attempts headed our way, and we have to make sure the site is secured.....

    From the reply I got from our admin Ari, (who doesn't hide who he is) it appears the was a security breach and the bans were basicly injected into the Database.

    So I guess I better apologize for doning nothing as well. It appears that "jdinner" is banned FOREVER with a reason of NONE.
    I don't recall doing anything to upset anyone except to help in a constructive manner. If that is a problem then I guess I'm done with this site.

    Correct - there was a security breach which resulted in people being incorrectly banned. We changed forum software to prevent such breaches in the future. In the migration, all information was transferee, including bans. I have gone and manually removed the bans now - everyone who was previously banned by the hacker should have full access to the forum now.

    Jim - there is no expectation that you should apologize for anything. Again, the most recent round of bans were not legitimate, and should be reversed. Please email me if you still cannot access the forum so we can get the issue preventing you from being able to login worked out!
