    Preditors & Editors Hacked

    I just heard from Dave Kuzminski:

    For now, the P&E site that was hosted at Anotherealm was hacked along with Anotherealm.
    We are operating from our alternate site at URL http://www.invirtuo.cc/prededitors/ which happens to be a full and complete copy of the P&E listings, except for having a different host logo. Please feel free to pass along this info to others or post it in other sites.
    http://www.invirtuo.cc/prededitors/

    I'll take this notice down when I hear the all-clear.

    contact info for Dave?

    I read his message about the hacking on "Another Realm." I moderate at Wildpoetryforum and we've had some problems with hackers inserting code that destroyed files. One of the files had arabic letters. The similarities are striking and I wanted to email him about it.

    The webmaster is taking care of the site problems. At the same time, I'm announcing that the site is being restored. P&E should now be accessible at that location. Anotherealm is doing the best they can to restore their own files. Evidently, they suffered some file losses. P&E was lucky because we keep our files in four places. It's extra work maintaining that many, but it paid off for us big time.

    Gosh, I'm glad you're on top of things. Your site has been a lifeline for me since I started seriously writing, oh, two whole years ago. You guys rock.

    Since the problem's been resolved, I'll let this thread sink.
