    The bulk of my business is commercial curtainwall, site plans and floor plans. I do occasionally get a bit of tool and die, and the odd house now and again.

    Thanks David!

    You're correct about no website being 100% secure. There's no such thing as 100% security in anything. Take an analogy of a door with a lock: As long as some key can open that lock, it would not be impossible to make an "impersonation" of that key. The key can only be made more difficult to copy, but never impossible - otherwise it cannot be manufactured in the 1st place.

    Same goes for a website. You can make it totally secure by disallowing any form of access, but wouldn't that obviate the purpose of a website? Unfortunately, you cannot cater for any and all possibilities - there can always be some nitwit which stumbles upon a loop-hole which no-one thought of before. So AFAICT "security" is an ongoing process, rather than a fix at any one time.

    I'm sorry to say, you'll probably not see this as the last time you need to do some fixes. I know, my company's website also has numerous similar hacking attempts periodically. I wish we didn't need to check up on these so much: it takes a hell of a lot of productive time away from our "real" work. If I could find one of these "hackers" I swear I'd wring his neck!

    ...

    I blame Hollywood for romanticizing "hacking" ... turning it into something "cool". Being a programmer, I know that hacking is actually a very "stupid" thing. It doesn't take a genius to be a hacker, these non-humans merely need to be persistent (and I've seen donkeys being extremely persistent). ... Sorry, that's probably an insult to donkeys - hope I don't get kicked!

    I think the difficulty for me has been that CADTutor started as a hobby and has remained a hobby but clearly that has to change. This incident has made me realise that in order to keep this place going with ever-increasing traffic and members, I have to get a lot more serious about it and it needs to be more than just a hobby. It's clear that many people depend on this site and the community has become an important aspect of many lives and I therefore have a responsibility to make sure it keeps going. I'm doing some thinking at the moment... (in a good way).

    And yet, you have outperformed the corporate sponsored forums in many ways. Maybe you could run a tutorial for how to properly run a successful forum.

    I agree with many others in that your efforts far surpass anything that I have seen elsewhere. I commend your dedication in running the best autocad site on the net!

    Glad the site is back up!!

    I don't know if it is related to the changes CadTutor has undergone to make the site more secure but when I visit the forums I'm now missing the message header bar that displays when a post was posted as well as the link to the individual post for referencing other posts. See picture below. Anyone else having this issue?

    UPDATE: I know I should have checked multiple browsers and I should have posted what browser I was having the issue with before I posted so my apologies. Anyways, the issue I describe is with IE7. Also the forum displays correctly in Firefox 3.6.13.

    Yes, the issue is discussed here: http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showthread.php?56691

    Looks as though this was introduced in the new version of vBulletin.

    Just did a search to help someone here using Google and one of the "hits" listed a link to CADTutor and right below it were the words This site may harm your computer.
