You can also install mod_security for apache to mitigate these attacks at apache:

Just a little bit of a forewarning.


Later this evening, once I get off of work (about 5pm Central Standard Time), I will be shutting down the website and backing up the forums, uploaded files, etc. INTL may be down for as long as a week, depending on how long it takes for me to reinstall the core software and get things back to running smoothly again, so be prepared for an extended outage.



As far as the forums coming dangerously close to being shut down, I mean that if once the operating system reload has been done, if the server gets compromised yet again, I will be indefinitely suspending the forums and no longer running INTL. So if this is all being caused by one of you out there, which I highly doubt is the case, but I'm not ruling out, you will be the sole cause of this forum being wiped off the face of the earth, so congratulations, asshole! Job well done!

Just did a bit of research and it costs $25 for the reload and an additional $150/hour in "operating system reloading administration". That's a problem, since come to think of it, I haven't received a single donation in the last couple months. Not trying to run a guilt trip on anyone, but seriously, would any of you spend upward of $200 out of your own pocket to run a website that has absolutely no return whatsoever? How about roughly $1000/year? How about investing a few hundred hours into performing technical maintenance on it?

Yeah, I thought not.




This may very well be the end, unless I can find another server to host INTL on for free, which I may be able to do, but if not, sorry guys, but this will likely be the end.

Don't be sorry. You've already done well beyond the call of duty to maintain this community by financially and technically supporting the INTL site. Thank you for that.

Does this "server compromise" damage the integrity of your code? Or did someone just upload some bad files that have no effect on it?

How many people are there on this forum? If we all send 5.00 it may very well do the trick. That's not very much to keep this thing alive. I for one think it would be worth it. Anyone else in for this?

Well damn. Sorry it had to end this way. I guess I'll see you guys around the internets.

PS- If you are looking for another server, layeredtech has some pretty nice stuff. I doubt it's quite the stats INTL is currently running on, but it should be enough for the forums.
Realize that falling in love with someone is just the results of a series of generic events that can occur between you and basically anyone who meets your standards of attractiveness. It's just an emotional manifestation of a handfull of chemicals bouncing back and forth. It's not the holy grail of living, it's not your reason to exist and it's definitely not something reserved for "that one person". Accept that you are just an animal with a big brain that allows him to fret over what only amounts to a game of hormone pool. What you're feeling is not your soul dying a gurgling, ugly death, but withdrawal. All the happy chemicals that saturated your body when you were with her are kicking out cold turkey, and your body is screaming bloody murder, where are my fucking endorphins? It's just chocolate. Find a new bar.

Arnok, that address is outdated now that he is back stateside. If you can paypal him, that'd probably be best. There's an option somewhere on paypal to send money from a credit/debit card, but I don't use it so I'm not sure how that works.

Jeff, $50 will be on the way when my tax return comes in this week and my paypal gets unfucked.

For now at least.

I just spoke to Kyle and he deciphered some of the information that is in the first post. He also gave me some tips on how to further avoid any issues as far as security compromises. Seems like this was just a false alarm (if anyone wants donations refuned, just say so and I'll say "no").

But seriously, if the tips that Kyle gave me don't subvert the compromise, the hosting company will likely do a forced shutdown of the server, at which point it'll be out of my hands and I won't really have a say in the matter MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

For the last couple of hours, INTL became more sappy than my stepfamily.

And I loved every second of it.

Oh blah, false alarm, my guess as to what was happening was really so much better/more exciting. See I called April Fool's joke (because every forum does the OMG SHUTTING DOWN thing about this time every year, and let's face it... you've done it before). I figured you'd shut down the site for a day or two, and then have a dramatic return with INTL v.4 on the 1st or 2nd.

Doesn't the manatee kind of look like a guest on the Ricki Lake show? "Uh, Ricki, I'm here because I'm endangered." Then one of those mean people in the audience would offer up the advice, "Yeah, I want to say something to the sea pig!" "That's sea cow." "Whatever. Sea pig, you gotta get yourself an education and a job!" "Uh, I live in the ocean." "It just so happens you live in the ocean 'cuz you ain't got no job!" "I don't know what you're -" "You gotta get in Weight Watchers, some kinda program!" "I have a layer of blubber to keep my body warm in the water..." "Whatever, talk to the hand." "I dont have a hand!"

I just realized that I would have absolutely nothing to do on the net if INTL goes down. It is always the first bookmark, and the last as well. MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS


This is absolutely the best forum on the internet, without a doubt. It would be a damn shame to see it die like this.

Surely something dumber has come up since my apparent forgetfulness for STDs and doctor visits.

I think the last time he almost killed the site was back in January of ought-four. Ah, fond memories of the Korea Krackdown. Then again, I wasn't exactly around all that much for a year, so maybe he almost attempted server suicide another time as well.

Either way, my forgetfully lazy, non-contributing ass will set up an allotment for a monthly contribution to the site, and I'm still going to send that $50, being that my tax return is almost here and I'm probably going to spend it frivolously anyhow.

Also, I was thinking it might have been an elaborate plan to launch INTL4, as well, but then I remembered that the site was down a few times last week.
If my ears could talk, they would say, "Thank you, Zorak. You have enriched us both."

It's not April Fool's yet because I'm not 21 and hungover.

I didn't think I'd have to spell it out - if this thread actually occurred on April 1st no one would fall for it, thus having the thread early is required to make the joke believable omgz.

Maybe I'm the only person who thinks like this. :/

It doesn't really count if it's not on April Fool's. That's what makes the day great; it takes an ingenius prank to trick anyone.
