A brief note by bcc first to those that directly requested status from me (other CRG members were also getting direct emails besides me; this is only to those that contacted me directly). We should be following this up later with a general email to the larger forum membership, now that we're at least partially back up. New posting has already started, I see, which is good.
I got this from the webmaster:
The CRG Forum is (for the moment) back-up, and with the forum history believed essentially - if not fully - intact. We're still making repairs and reloading site content.
Suggest you refresh your browser cache and/or clear out your cookies if you have problems, as the hacker content would otherwise still be in your browser cache if you attempted to access the forum during the event.
Our technical people are still assessing the root cause to attempt to prevent a further hacker exploitation. However we may still be vulnerable to a repeat event until we resolve what actually happened.
Thanks for your patience.
Rich Fields, CRG
