TOP's admin posted this

 

We've been hacked.

The main site has been hacked. To make matters worse, the hackers have deleted the back-ups as well.

The forum is unaffected, so for a short time we'll be operating as a forum only

Apologies to all

Unfortunately we didn't have an external backup (A lesson learnt)

I've spent many hours trying to rebuild the existing, but as I try and sort one problem out I find three more.

In practical terms it would probably take more time to rebuild the old site than start again, so that's the direction we're going to take.

From a security point of view (for our members) it seems like the object of the hacking was vandalism rather than to gain people's details. But just in case, I'd urge people to change passwords on other sites if they have used the same password as here as a precaution.

latest announce from TOP

 

 
Important Announcement!
Unfortunately TOP has been hacked.

Whilst we are resolving the problems, the only area open is the forum.

We hope to be fully functional again soon, and would thank you for your patience and understanding.

What a horrible thing to do. I hope they manage to get it sorted and come out even better than before. Its a good friendly site. Personally I use the computer generated password though so no worries here. Best of luck xx

What a shame, they worked so hard at it and it is a friendly place.  Some horrible people out there, feel for admin. karry and the team.

We are still working on getting all back but have forum up and running, thanks all

 

I really don't understand what anyone got from doing it tbh there are no hostile links or anything just pure trash the site

 

we would reccommend to all if you use same password on our site on any other site change it immediately

why even bother? Why don't some guys actually get a life, like get out more instead of being a vindictive geek

An update from TOP:

 

All profiles for service providers have been recovered except for London and overseas. We're hoping to get these recovered tomorrow(Saturday)

 

At the moment we've prioritised getting profiles back which has to be done manually and is time consuming.

That's one of the side-effects of TOP being hacked

That's the link for creating a WG profile - isn't the forum link different?

no, that's the profile page for everyone, just choose your user name, password, your gender/sexuality and then fill in any other bits you want
