Gammaspectacular Site Down

Post by Steven Sesselmann » 17 Jan 2019, 18:54

Hi All,

I discovered this week that my site has fallen victim to the "authorize.net" hack, and after spending two whole days trying to remove/replace the hacked files I eventually gave up and took the whole site down.

At this stage I don't know what the solution is, as I have not been able to verify if OpenCart have fixed the vulnerability of the source code.

In the mean time an looking into other platforms that might be more secure.

The forum remains open.

Steven

Hi All,

I feel relieved, the site is back up and we seem to have restored all functions give or take a few images.

It took me three days of solid work to fix this hack, but I haven't identified exactly how the hacker was able to get in and modify files.

Will keep a close eye on it going forward.

Hackers really don't contribute much to society...

Steven
