HLP Site & Forums undergoing some uber-progressive live changes
So we had a security issue around here, but thanks to quick action by Zacam and rev_posix, things are back up and running. However, we still need to address some things, and while we could take the site/forums offline while we fix them, there's not much point considering what we'll be doing. So, excuse the existing wonkyness, and thanks for understanding if things get even wonkier before they get betterer. :D

For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well.

Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

*Ahem*


Yo, I don't want to spoil your party, but there is one user on IRC who reports trouble with the password reset function. Apparently it's redirecting him to an attack site, could you make sure that that's fixed first before any cosmetic issues?

That malicious code is what's been triggering this whole mess. I'm trying to figure out where it all is.

Re: HLP Site & Forums undergoing some uber-progressive live changes
Which password-reset function, on the forums? I've cleaned out an infected script from the mainpage, but the forums should be fine after Zacan & rev dealt with 'em...

Good luck fixing things up guys, I feel for you. Just for reference, conversation is occuring at the moment over under Site Support, apparently in the last couple hours Google has found a couple of active exploits on the site. Not trying to make anyone's day worse, just wanted to make sure that you guys have all the information you need.

I figured that's what Google's "This is an attack site" warning was about. Everything is safe right?

Take a look over in this thread for what seems to be the latest news. Short versions, things should be clean and safe, and the remaining messy bits should be patched up soon.
