CigaretteCardCollecting.com down due to Hacking attack
« on: September 09, 2013, 07:40:11 PM »
We apologise for the site being down for a few days. This was due to a hacking attack and unfortunately occurred whilst I was on holiday so the site was down longer than it would have been otherwise.

Normal service has now been resumed.

Happy to see we are all back, is this a second attack on the forum? Just wonder what they get out of this sort of attack, we don't sell credit cards Tec. So why do they bother?

Glad to see the site's back up and running.

However since it's been back up I've been trying without success to attach some photos/scans to a post. I keep getting the following message:

An Error Has Occurred!
The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

Anyone else having similar trouble? Or is it me doing something wrong?

Glad to see the site back.  It seems to have a new look as well.

Maybe they can get hold of passwords.  A lot of people use the same password on many sites and if they have your password maybe they can hack into your Paypal account or something as well.

I have now fixed the problem with the Attachments folder so you should now be able to upload pics.

I did notice the site was down the other day, but would just like to comment on the new look much better in my opinion, never was a fan of the previous colour scheme.

Thank you for your effort.
Always looking for interesting cards and associated goods issued by Ogden's you can see samples of cards I am looking for in the wants section.
Best Regards David
