It appears to only be the root website (home page). I agree with you on it being the same as breaking in yet it's actually worse IMO. It affects more than one person. Avoid the home page until repaired. Who knows what the idiots may have done to it; making it unsafe.

Go directly to the root forum section...

The sales section works for me as well as all the other pages...

Update forum software as well. It isn't necessarily the host fault. Hackers find cracks in old software to gain entry.

Just an FYI, this still shows from a google search...not sure if you have any direct control over that or not, but it may steer people away if they see that and think the site is still hacked.

You offering to pay for it and do the transfer?

Denial of service attacks targeted everyone on that server. So it was not just us. Still, a day or so is one thing, 4 days.....they really are dragging their feet here.

I ran a fairly active vBulletin forum for a number of years and ran the gamut of hosting services... shared, dedicated server and VPS. There are some really, REALLY good VPS services out there these days that quite frankly have shockingly low monthly fees.

A four days outage for ANY reason, DOS or not is absolutely unacceptable. I would look to move on. Moving a vBulletin site is not difficult at all as long as you have access to the database. It's as simple as dumping the DB, downloading the software from vBulletin, pushing it up to the new server, then restoring the DB to the new server.

PM me if you have any questions or need some pointers.

Actually it's only been 2 days, not 4. We do the best we can while doing other jobs and work.

I hope you didn't think my comment negative. I certainly have no problem and I happen to be one of the donating supporters. I personally don't think I would be as generous with my time and resources as you've been. My point was it's a free forum without corporate pockets. I appreciate the information and help provided by yourself and staff more than you may realize! It happens to be one of the only sites where myths and fodder in this hobby are quickly put to rest by experienced hobbyist.
