Server compromised

Post by vincent » Tue Dec 14, 2010 7:48 pm

Hi everybody,

Our server has been compromised. As a consequence we will move to a new server this week. It means that Zenwalk website and forum will be down a few hours in order for us to do the migration. Hopefully we will not loose any informations/packages/posts...

Right now the situation is the following:

- sftp/scp are not working properly preventing us to update packages as we would like...
- mailing lists are unavailable
- website and forum are still up (for now...)

Unfortunately, migrating to a new server will also generate unplanned costs (around 110 Euros). If some of you can make a donation in order to cover these costs, it would be very welcome. Please contact me in private if you want to make a donation.


Best regards,

Vincent

Hi,

I also would like to ask everybody to contribute by clicking on the R1soft sponsor banner on the Zenwalk.org main page : we need your help to maintain the server :)

Cheers
JP

For contributions believe you mean: click-on "Help us" in the Main Menu column on the home page.

I can't find a "R1soft sponsor banner" on the main page, if I'm wrong please advise.

P.S. The banner doesn't show if you're on a Windows Internet Explorer (here Win XP), only a broken imag icon. I guess it is for Linux users only.

Internet Explorer is not really a web browser, it's a worm catcher, I don't mind :)
