GPL Weekly is being attacked with SQL injection (= bots trying to access database with tricky manouvers), and thus it is down again. At the moment I don't have the resources (80% time, 20% knowledge)  to solve this problem. Expect a few weeks break, till I'm back with an all new, safe and bulletproof version.

Damn hacking bots. :censored:
My website was also attacked some months ago.

Good luck Jani to rebuild GPL Weekly again. :crossfingers:
Your site will be missed.
Thx for all your work!

Pulling for you Jani.
Sure this is making you miserable.

Be patient. Don't worry.

Maybe someone here knows some SQL stuff or knows someone who knows someone?
Any smart people here?
:P



Good Morning Stupid World
:D

This is such depressing news. The Groundhog site is the only one which handles the 67 Historical (online) carset, and the GT Extra mod.

How can people be so mindlessly vandalistic?

Whoever is responsible for overseeing the structure and the protocols of the Internet should start developing a tracing mechanism (much like tracing a phone call) so that malicious behaviour like this can be located and stopped.

IMHO it was always a bad idea for the web to be almost fully open, as it simply invites sadistic people to abuse it and destroy the pleasure and hard work of others. :swear: :fyou: :boxing:

:swear: :fyou: :boxing:

1. Bot Traps, like bot sponges
2. Bots that kill bots, like vampire bitcoin miners
3. Better SQL protocols, like, maybe, member only unknown encrypted block chain passwords, so no one gets in unless they are supposed to, and for anyone with access, the door is always open.
:)


Apologies Saiph for hacking your excellent post.
:D

This world is full of bad people Jani, but I know you from the GBGPL days as a racer, you don't give up. Even though I don't do GPL these days I often pop into 'Weekly" just to see what's going on. Good luck mate.

Thank you Jani.

GPL Weekly holds the whole on-line scene together.

Very hopeful things will be looking better soon.

Because they can.  Simple as that.  That's all the reason they need.  Even more so behind the anonymity the internet provides.

That the internet in general has turned into such a dangerous place gives insight on just how ugly human beings often are.
