the wiki is temporarily unavailable for security reasons

Postby kpearson » Sat Jul 07, 2007 10:08 pm

Hackers were using some of the wiki php scripts for DDoS attacks and I had to shut off access to the wiki to prevent them from using the scripts further. I need to find a way to upgrade the scripts or to make them safe from hackers. The wiki is unavailable until I can do this.

I have not been able to find a way upgrade the wiki php scripts and have not been able to access the content in the wiki.

I have created a new wiki at http://distributedcomputinginfo.pbwiki.com/ and I have restored as much information as I can from the Internet Archive's copy of the old wiki pages:

http://web.archive.org/web/200704050734 ... /Main_Page

I hope many of the contributors to the old wiki will continue to contribute to the new one. To all of those contributors: thank you very much for your help!
