I didn't have the heat on at my place, and I was trying to boot my system when I smelled a burnt odor from the hard drive. Just recently picked up a used one.

@  furrykef : (27 December 2020 - 12:18 PM)

How?

@  Ishapar : (26 December 2020 - 05:31 AM)

Furrykef, if it's any consolation, I just recently burnt my hard drive to a crisp.

@  Nex : (24 December 2020 - 09:41 PM)

Merpy Holimas ya roustabouts!

@  furrykef : (11 December 2020 - 10:23 AM)

Welp. I'm finally attempting to copy files from my old hard drive -- the one that got fried -- to my new one, and things aren't looking good at all.

@  furrykef : (05 December 2020 - 04:19 PM)

The graphics card is taken from my old machine and is currently giving me a hell of a lot of trouble because I'm trying to get Vulkan support in Linux...

@  furrykef : (05 December 2020 - 04:18 PM)

This, except I haven't bought an optical drive or UPS yet: https://pcpartpicker...ef/saved/vsyQqs

@  Nex : (05 December 2020 - 03:17 AM)

What kind of beast did you put together for yourself then Kef?

@  furrykef : (04 December 2020 - 07:41 AM)

Woo! I'm on my new machine.

@  furrykef : (02 December 2020 - 04:04 PM)

Now that all the parts have arrived, I'm not in any mood to actually build the PC.

@  furrykef : (30 November 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Welp. The good news is my RAM arrived today. The bad news is I'd misread the package tracking, so my mobo and fan are coming late.

@  furrykef : (30 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Groan. All my parts are supposed to get here today, except my RAM shipped late, so it will get here Wednesday. And there's no DDR4 RAM anywhere else in the house.

@  furrykef : (23 November 2020 - 04:17 AM)

Me.

@  Nex : (21 November 2020 - 07:11 PM)

All this chat about failing hardware reminds me that I gotta update my GPU n SSD this year. Who'dve thought an M.2 boot drive could get filled entirely by sodding Windows updates >.<

@  tiff15 : (21 November 2020 - 12:28 PM)

computer fans are starting to wonk out, so Im using a laptop for now...Hi all!

@  furrykef : (18 November 2020 - 05:56 AM)

The bad news is my hard drive is busted. So I'm currently on a Linux Mint Live CD. Ain't that fun?

@  furrykef : (18 November 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Whew! I'm finally on my PC after three weeks of not being able to use it.

FUS should bring back the artist galleries.

Some users weren't able to log in because their account was set to use the Warrior skin, which is currently unavailable. I've worked around this by disabling the Warrior skin for now. Don't worry, it'll be back soon! Hopefully you should be able to log in now, at least.

Yeah,....So right now the main FUS skin and the Black Warrior one are disabled.   Hpefully we can fix those soon.  If Not I'll have to drag out Neon and beat him to make IPB pretty again.   Thats if Kef can't tweak it...We are running completely different software then before so...Things are weird.

Well, to be precise, we're running the same software, but a fresh installation of it. I reinstalled everything from scratch; I did not reupload anything from the old server without being 100% sure that it either contained no .php files or that all .php files were clean. This way it should be impossible for there to be any back doors left over.

Should, you never know.

 

 

When will Warrior (black) theme be back?

Also, autocorrect doesnt work. Underlines doesnt show up when a word is wrong. It shows up everywhere else except here

Hopefully within 24-48 hours. I still gotta get Arekkisu's site (which is hosted on FUS's server) transitioned to the new server first. That should be a piece of cake, though.

What is your backup schedule for files and DB? considering the frequency of breaches it seems like you'd need it to be pretty frequent so that you can recover from breaches without losing too much.

I think we were doing a daily backup and a weekly one. For this, though, I didn't use a backup from before the hack. Instead, I reinstalled Wordpress for the main site and for Sea3on, and I reinstalled Invision (which took rather longer than I hoped). For everything else I just transferred the files as-is to the new server, but I either deleted all .php files or I made sure all the .php files were clean. There were very few .php files I needed to upload this way, so checking them was no big deal and I am 100% confident I didn't upload any compromised ones.

Do you have any idea what the initial attack vector may have been?

Well, the first time we got hacked, it was probably through an out-of-date, vulnerable Wordpress installation. The second time, it was probably through a backdoor I failed to clean up after the first time. I did a poor job of it and got what I deserved; it's too bad all the other FUSers had to suffer along with me. It's also possible they figured out one of the Wordpress passwords after the first hacking and got in that way, so this time around I also forced a change of all Wordpress passwords.

One of the biggest downsides of using WP is that you constantly need to make sure that it and all of its plugins are up to date. The other is that it's awful to develop for. If only it wasn't so nice to use it would be so much simpler to make a case against it.

I'm not the biggest fan of WP myself. Switching to something else would be so painful, though...
