    Frontpage Server Extensions

    Jon FrontPage was always horrible when it was active but, as Bala says, it is no longer being supported by anyone. What exactly is it your site needs it for as it's possible someone could help ease the transition.

    Openssl - Heartbleed Vulnerability

    Yes but given this exploit has been around fora couple of years and leaves no traces you have no real way of knowing if somebody has used and and got a copy of the key.

    Openssl - Heartbleed Vulnerability

    But have new certificates and keys been issued in case the servers had already been exploited?

    Not overly impressed from that video. Opera Mail is clean but takes some getting used to.

    Noc Outage

    I had a similar issue with my forum not working. I checked the error log via cpanel and it turns out that they have changed something on the server so access to my forum was being blocked because it's permissions were set to 777.

    Noc Outage

    God I'm always getting core files from SMF. They are usually created whenever something causes PHP or MySQL to crash.

    Noc Outage

    Well Matra may be up and running but it's got issues. http://carbonize.co.uk/ you get a 404 and if you try to FTP in you get 421 Home directory not available. Can login to cpanel but File Manager says there are no files in my home directory.

    Noc Outage

    Any danger of seeing Matra back up and working anytime soon?
  9. That particular forum looks like punBB. You can find a lot of forums for you to play with at http:/opensourcecms.com

    Noc Outage

    It's already been stated that Matra is being inspected. Pain in the rear since I was hoping to push out a new version of Lazarus :|
  11. The subject says it all. Gmail is now classing all email sent from matra server as spam. So not sure if this is Gmail being overly touchy with their spam filtering of if someone on matra has been compromised.

    Mail From Matra Blocked By Gmail

    I had already added a filter to stop them going in to the spam folder but I thought it was best to inform you in case the spam was still ongoing.

    Mail From Matra Blocked By Gmail

    It's OK Disk it's been resolved. Apparently you did have a spammer abusing Matra a few days ago but it had already been dealt with and your techs have now contacted Google to inform them

    Mail From Matra Blocked By Gmail

    Well I submitted a ticket and have just spent an hour or two with some tech who got it in to their head that there was no issue because the emails are being received by the Gmail server with no errors :| I probably shouldn't of used the term blocked but pretty sure I didn't say that in my ticket. Just checked and my ticket clearly states that Gmail is now classing all email from matra as spam.
  15. That's good to know. Hopefully it will help prevent peoples sites being exploited because of seriously out of date scripts installed through Fantastico.
  16. And here we are almost a year later and Fantastico is still offering Joomla 1.5 despite Joomla now actually being on version 3. It is because of Fantastico's refusal to keep thiings updated that we get people installing scripts with major security exploits in them. They are still offering SMF 2.0.2 but we are now on 2.0.4 with the last two updates being security patches.
  17. My partner is getting laptops for the boys for Christmas so muggins here has to set up a wireless network. I am after a wireless router that has good content filtering and preferably logging so I can control what they view and keep an eye on their activity. Any recommendations? I did ask Linksys for more details about theirs but getting sensible information from a help desk is near impossible.

    Wireless Router With Content Filtering

    Without access to their email accounts you can't although I suspect a link is going to be posted sometime soon.
  19. I've been a customer for many many years and have always found the staff professional and helpful but the member of staff I dealt with today just seemed to be a call center operator following the scripted responses from a screen in front of them without actually understanding the problem or listening to what I was saying. I don't want to go in to this publicly so would be grateful if a senior meber of staff could contact me.

    How To Complain?

    Thank you for taking the time to deal with this personally as well as the trust you have shown in me. This incident and the change you implemented has made me audit my webspace and I have deleted old scripts I no longer use as well as updaing some I wrote when I was still just learning PHP to sanitize all inputs. Whilst I don't think any of them were a risk the changes you have implemented have made me think safe is better than sorry. I would just like to say again that nearly all of my dealings with TCH staff have been professional and friendly. I would like to specially point out people like Andy who used to be your UK tech many years ago and would take the time to talk to me on messenger when I had problems. Thanks also go out to Dick, Bruce and Thomas for the help and intelligent forum input I have seen from them over the years.

    This Forum

    Given that Frontpage is now long dead and replaced with Expressions should this forum removed? I mean the last actual FrontPage related post seems to be from 2009.

    Firefox 5.0

    I'm running Aurora which is somewhere between a beta and a nightly so is currently Firefox 8. Firefox 7 is released on 27th at which point 8 becomes the beta, 9 becomes Aurora and 10 becomes a nightly.

    Firefox 5.0

    So the faster JavaScript engine and improved memory management in Firefox 7 is not enough to convince you?Not to mention the improved HTML5 and CSS3 support.

    What Firewall Do You Like / Use?

    Sygate was the best firewall I ever used but then Symantec bought the company. These days I just use my router and Windows firewall. You can set Windows firewall to block all outgoing connections unless you have allowed them and there is a program somewhere that pops up notifications to make it easier to monitor what is being blocked and to easily allow them. But as I don't download anything I think may be dodgy I really have no need to block outgoing connections just incoming.

    Firefox 5.0

    Firefox 6 brings some very nice web dev tools and Firefox 7 has some serious improvements to the memory management.
