Fellow Paddlers: Is Canoetripping dead?

I know most of you come here too.

Did it need to be shut down?

Will it return?

I thought someone had taken it over earlier in the year?

They had an attack in the last few days from some malicious virus...luckily, I avoided most of that stuff thanks to good firewalls.
Not sure if the site owners/admins know how to deal with such attacks.
Too bad, they had a good thing going.

I never understood the anonymous destruction of sites in that way.
Kind of like white suburban teen angst manifested by slashing tires, breaking windows, and other immature behavior.

Yeah its destruction was most likely just a pet project for some DB. I was hoping it wouldn't come to that. It wasn't a big site either, just a few regulars. Wish I could have helped but I know nothing about site management or protection.

Please stop the speculation. You can contact me. I am not an admin over there, but you guys are acting like the stock market.

Yes there was a v bulletin hack that started last month for A LOT of forums. Before losing all your feathers, give the fixers time to fix!

Bird fix your feathers. I don't like your avatar here. I liked the Big Bird one better.

I wasn't sure we had any fixers. That is why I asked if it will be back.

My feathers are still in tact!

Good. Now pull your covers over your head. You can PM me if that doesn't work.

This bird analogy has my mind reeling. Sometimes his Audubon clock goes nuts if the moon shines in the window at 2 am. There is a shrill bird call then. Of course normally it's not heard. But he has a bird afghan handy just in case.

Sounds like everything one might want to know about the hacked site is now known. O/w just send a PM to YC.
