Hi Everyone

Thank you to everyone that emailed me or phoned me to make me aware of the problem.

The 'new design' was not intentional. The website was hacked by someone who managed to change the design, change the page title and insert some content on the Home Page. This was all they could change and wouldn't have been able to get into other parts of the site because of the way it is constructed. This has all been removed now and the site should be back to normal.
Hacking is just another form of vandalism and is difficult to counter completely, especially websites that have user interaction with Forums such as this one.

So now its business as usual

Hywl fawr

Marilyn

I am still seeing the nuke logo and other tacky icon additions. I especially miss seeing Bryn's picture. This is very creepy.

If you're still seeing the hacked version of the site, try clicking on the Refresh button in the browser toolbar. It may be that your browser has stored these images and needs to be prompted to update itself.

Regards,

Barry,
'The Computer Guru', as Marilyn calls me. Smile

I tried refreshing the page but I still have the "php Nuke Web Portal System" logo at the top. Is that supposed to be there?

Try going into 'My Account' and click the Theme button. Then check that 'Terfeliaid' is chosen as the theme. If not, choose it and save.

Thanks, Barry!

I clicked on the refresh button several times last night and this morning the "php Nuke" logo is gone. Bryn's pic is back. Very Happy

I don't know about anyone else, but I can't get in through the proper front page, the one that gives the English or Welsh option. Apart from that everything seems OK.

Hey Marilyn,
I got onto the site this morning greeted by "beloved" Bryn's pic and no creepy stuff! (I go directly to the English page...) Thank you for your vigilance in protecting our little world.

I can only get in through a "first page" link Phyllis sent me. Why would anyone want to hack into Bryn's site? Evil or Very Mad

Hi
I really can't think why someone should do this to our favourite site. Why couldn't they show how clever they are by doing something good for society??
Anyway - so glad to be back, and thanks to all who have worked hard to achieve this!!

I agree, Gillian - if this idiot wants to prove what a clever hacker he is and wreck websites so no-one can access them, why not do it to the evil sites which exploit kids, not sites like thios which give lots of simple, innocent pleasure to folks like us.

I suppose it could be a hubby who is sick of his wife spending hours online gazing at photos of Bryn!!
