surreally, cont’d

The site was shut down because we had found PsyBNC running, again, on the account and after several analysis we have found that all your php scripts are vunerable. We have noticed that through your scripts, people and uploading software to your account and even executing commands.

so. because there are still comment forms without mt-sanitize installed, who didn’t disable html which is easier way of securing things, surreally is shut down.

i’m quite sick, have two jobs both of which i have intense workloads at, to go to today. and i can only barely breathe.

you know? some days i hate my fucking life.

  1. sanitize is kinda complicated, the plugins are all installed but it takes messing with templates to implement it.

    turning off the html in comments works just fine.

    that’s all it takes really, just giving up that html in the comments.

    apparently surreally is a well known and popular target amongst hackers, judging from the amount and frequency of the attacks.

  2. I don’t think I have the html in my comments. And can’t see if I do anyway.
    Remember last week, when the “kids” were using my comments to talk about commercial songs? Could that be an example of hacksters getting in?
    I’ll just keep coming back to this site to see what-if anything-I can do.
    I’m not writing anything earth shattering in my blog anyway. Until I can find a cure for a disease and write about it on my blog-I am in no rush.
    I hope you feel better, kd…
    You have enough to do right now with your two jobs-we all can wait with this blog stuff….
    If it weren’t for you, most of us wouldn’t be in cyberspace anyway…

  3. I never read anything about the new MT feature for sanitizing comments, which was stupid on my part and a hassle for my readers. I inserted the sanitize=”0″ bit on my MT template tags, and so far so good. But you just know that Ben & Mena are gonna catch hell for trying to be do-gooders.

  4. kd….i am so sorry…i’m not even sure that i know what ‘sanitize’ is, except for with a can of comet. i hope that i didn’t make things worse for you. if there is anything i can do to help please let me know, and more than anything i hope that you are feeling better-that is what is most important!

  5. The site was shut down because we had found PsyBNC running oh ick! Hope that gets sorted out soon, KD.

    I was going to start of this comments by saying ‘is it wrong for me to get all exted and say by jove yer alive anytime I see hoohe.us listed in weblogs.’ but I think, i’ll just leave that in quotations.

    hope you are feling better soon. .. is ther anything we can send you?

  7. I guess I’m one of the people who didn’t sanitize. I admit that I didn’t really understand what I was supposed to do, and sort of put it out of my mind due to feeling overwhelmed by the info. Maybe I hoped that some mt gremlin would fix it during the night.

    I really wasn’t even sure if it applied to me, but now I am presuming that it did, and it does, and now it doesn’t.

  8. oh no! i forgot to email you that the inhalers are on the way. you should get them today. i’m so sorry for dragging my heels on this. :o[

  9. Ok kD, I thought I posted this but I guess it did not post? I dunno, anyway, I am very sorry you are sick. Getting you well is more important than anything else. Next, since I have been SO out of the look – barely posting on my site because I have been very busy with school and work (and that is about all of my life these days period) I had no clue what was going on. Still don’t if the truth be known, so if I can help please let me know. I am not sure if I helped cause this problem or not but if I can fix something on my end please let me know. I maybe will have time Sunday night – maybe. Otherwise it will be like Thursday if I am really lucky or Friday of next week before I can do anything. I have more on my salad plate than I should have taken on if that rings any bells your way. 🙂

    I hope you can get it all better, without you, I certainly would not be able to do the blog thing specially now.

    Huggles KD and please get well, call me if you need me – I mean that!

  10. Wait, one more thing, I see my page is up but no comments, does that mean anything? ack? And after reading these comments more closely I thought ok let me log in and see if I can look at whatever it is I should be “cleansing” or whatever and It will not let me log in at all. (I don’t know if that is new information or old information to you but it is information at least.) So let me know Kd and please get well!

    Another big huggle going out to you!

  11. Sorry to hear that you are feeling sick *and* work is pilling up. It never rains…..

    I think I performed all the sanitize stuff correctly a couple of weeks ago. If not please tell me.

    I know that the surreallities appreciate your dedication to our cause and think that they really won’t mind the occasional glitch here and there.

    Take care of yourself.

  12. Well, shoot…I thought I *had* taken care of it, but apparently I have not. I”m in the midst of attempting to turn off html in comments right now, but I have an octopus in my lap and a slow slow slow moving internet connection.

  13. Sorry you’re having trouble hon, but I’m just so happy that, for once, the surreally networks are causing trouble and it isn’t my fault.
