We are removing access to the formail and cgiemail scripts on our servers as I post this thread.

 

There have been many attempts to exploit the scripts again.

 

Please refer to this post on alternatives.

 

At this point I am not sure if we will re-open access to the form mail scripts or not. They have simply been a target of much discussion and it may simply be easier to have customers use their own scripts.

 

I will update more when we get to a final choice on what to do.

 

For now access is removed. So if you had forms using the scripts you should re-code them NOW.

I for one would have appreciated some sort of warning or notice (email?) that my forms would no longer be working. My boss is asking me how much money I think we lost with our customers not being able to submit their requests for product application information.

 

Any thoughts about some sort of email warning like "Hey folks we're making a change to our services that could adversely affect your web site."

I can't believe we've been using it all this time. I've got to scramble now to replace a production system here at my school that as of last week was working fine. Arg. :#

What do I do if i like the "FormMail Clone" script? I have NEVER had a problem with it on my last host (NetBunch). The reason I went with yuo guys is because you use CPanel and were supposed to have formail & cgimail. Please advise what I can do? I already paid for hosting and dont really want to have to pay to use a form script that should already be available to me. the domain I reged id http://www.sensationalsounds.ca.

 

Please advise what I can do.

WOW, What a disaster this is. I've had this script running without knowing that it is either not allowed or disabled, for about 6 months and the last form I got on it was on 11/12/2006. I had no idea.

 

Is there no method that you have to contact people to let them know? I'm a web designer for geez sakes, it looks pretty bad when you are a web designer and you have stuff on your site not working.

No one had the courtesy to tell me!

 

Now I can see why my business slowed down. I thought it was just because I was hoping to take a break anyway, but this is not a good thing to find out over a month later.

 

Please! Set up some kind of notification system to your customers.
