ooo, you like to play with fire, alain! 😆September 13, 2008 at 3:21 pm #7820poppyMember
Thanks for your devotion and effort in securing this site for us. It is certainly one of the best metaphysical sites on the web. Not only that, we have one of the most devoted (and prettiest) site masters.September 15, 2008 at 8:17 pm #7821MudpuppyMember
Thanks for the link to the antivirus software. My Spyware Doctor didn’t catch the malware until it was too late. I’ve already installed the new one you suggested and ran it all night. Looks like I had another sneaking one somewhere in my system restore file (which answers the question why none of my restore points worked yesterday).

Please check the site for the TR/Hijacker.Gen virus. I’m not saying it IS here but I have been picking it up once a day every day when my scanner runs. There are very few places I visit that regularly and this site is of course one of them.

OH FOR THE LOVE OF ENKI!
So, it’s pretty obvious to me that I have to now pay for a security audit. I have been going through my entire server and have found a few instances of this snippet of code however, there must be a security hole somewhere I am missing. This is very frustrating, time consuming and I can’t lie, I have a few times ALMOST felt like tossing in the towel! However, I am pretty sure that this is what TPTB would LOVE for me to do….just give up. But I will not do that!
SO, I am going to put out a call on the Drupal website for a helper (I will of course petition the universe for what I need) then I will find some money for a security audit and software that scans the site continuously for infections. I simply cannot do this on my own I have realized. It’s like David and Goliath! Mel against the hacker universe! 😆 I am a warrior but I fight a battle with faceless numbers and letters enemy….so one I can hardly relate to. I will face the faceless and LOVE the hackers and viruses right out of my site! 😀
I’ve done a base level security scan on all my sites, and the scan comes out “SAFE”. So I am at a loss! I’ll go through the database tables bit by bit and perhaps I can create a query that will search for certain strings…..
PLEASE do let me know people what variants you are picking up if you are picking them up. I’ve cleaned what I’ve seen yesterday.
Next step will be me making an announcement for all users to please change passwords to include one Capital letter, and at least one Num6er.
Love and hugs to you all….and my sincere apologies! 🙁

anybody know how to write code for a lovey-dovey counter-virus to teach the hackers a thing or two about our site? 😆September 22, 2008 at 7:48 pm #7825UFOBelieveMember
Too bad I don’t study information science anymore, maybe I could help then. xD
Anyway, my brother is into Design, HTML and stuff, and he has a partner who is into Programming and Coding sites. The two actually have a registered business, my brother is earning some nice money with it. This is the site: Link
This is what the website says about their skills:
My brother: Photoshop, Cinema 4d, HTML, Java Script, CSS, Quark X Press, Macrom. Dreamweaver, Acrobat
His partner: Macrom. Dreamweaver, HTML, PHP4, PHP5, MySQL, Photoshop
Maybe they could be of help. I’m totally NOT into these things, so I have no idea if they could maybe know about the problem.
Annu, let me know if they could be of help maybe.September 22, 2008 at 9:15 pm #7826alainizMember
maybe its about this company who lacks security on this site because seriously annu i never had theses problems of having virus out of a forum. But on my side with avast everything is a ok with no virus.September 23, 2008 at 4:38 pm #7827AnnanMember
My dear Annu!
Do not loose your ambition now be-loved, just for this little darkness passing by as an temporary affliction. Ambition and construction always attracts unforseen problems – but you have the large benefit of that Ambiton and Creation always win in the long term, because problems are just temporary and are THINGS – which ambition and creation is not. What would your project be in the long run, without some resistance? – well I know pretty much about that myself, and I would answer to that question not much.
I will be happy to share abundantly of my experiences, in another of the topics in comming times, when interest arises.
So, dear Annu please put up here how much of these money-things you will need to apply a security audit, and software that scans BoL with high quality, and I am of most certainty that it will be available for you in those means – quite soon. That unless some at this Drupal site, are getting some appointment from the universe to help you out 😉

Thank you Annan and everyone. I am organizing my thoughts on this and will actually ask my Council friends what I should do. After all, Book of Light was mostly their idea 😀
