    Why do any of you think that it is our (artists) choice to communicate via Notes and over FA? It's not. FA is where 99% of the commission scene happens. If you are trying to make a living from art, and not just doing it as a hobby in your free time, then FA is essential and crucial, because it...

    No need for this. You are making drama now. We were not complaining about them working on it. We were complaining about them not doing their job properly in the past by: - Not auditing the code for exploits in the past instead of only now when an attack already happened. - Not having proper...

    5/17 Site Attack

    To everyone whose reaction to the notion of involving the police was to go on about how the police can do nothing if the attacker is [insert theory about which part of the World outside the USA he is in]. It's like there was a bleeding man and someone said we should call the ambulance, and then...

    So does this widget work for anyone? All I see is a "loading tweet" placeholder, and I'm unable to just post a link because the forum will aggressively turn it into a [media] tag, no matter what.

    So? We don1t know where the attacker is from, so the police needs to be notified either way. Just because there is a chance he is unreachable it doesn't mean we shouldn't even try.

    Oh the irony! The discussion was pretty calm and fine already when you suddenly butted in to shittalk about shittalking. :/

    Took me ten seconds to realize your post is not empty... Why for the sake of Cthulhu would anyone post in center aligned text?! O-o

    They said that anything from before backup is fine, and also, even from after backup not everything was deleted and not all users were affected. But to be honest, why on Earth would you not have a local backup of your refs if they are so important?

    Right, I agree with that. And thanks for responding to my criticism in a professional manner! OK, I have to correct myself here. I've got the dates wrong. Full public disclosure happened 3th May. It got widely publicized by articles on 4th May. So you fixed within 1-2 days. In this light I...

    First of all, thanks for the update! But in all honesty you shouldn't be surprised that people are pissed. Which happened FIVE DAYS after the patch was released. The whole Internet was talking about ImageTragick, even regular media did talk about it and you somehow still managed to completely...

    If I udnerstand correctly ImageTragick was patched upstream 30th April. Dragoneer said: So it took them five days to patch it. That was more than enough time for the attackers to steal the source. So if the above is true, in this attack it wasn't ImageTragick, but some exploit they found in...

    That's why I tagged him, so he will surely see it when next time he checks the forum.

    5/17 Site Attack

    Well, making something open source can actually help security, because then any user who knows programming can go through it and look for issues and can report them. Generally, if the site is WRITTEN PROPERLY then seeing the source should not pose any risk. If security depends on hiding the...

    @Dragoneer We know you are busy fixing stuff now, but it's been a while since last statement, and I think it would help calming the crowd if you gave us a little update on how is restoration going.
