***** Update on EMa ARES website *****
I’m pleased to report that our website is back on line as of sometime yesterday afternoon. I have worked on it since then and it working properly.Apparently, our site suffered a brutal attack as part of a larger denial of service scheme, which is all too prevalent in today’s environment. Our website host, Phil Temples, worked very hard on the problem yesterday to excise the demons from the server.
He is advising, however, that more permanent fixes need to be affected to the system which may require some periodic downtime in the next week or so. Please remain patient while he completes this hardening process. In the meantime, if you encounter an outage, please return a little later. If you need anything quickly, contact me by return email and I will accommodate you. I have copies of most pages ready to go.
This note applies to our section site ema.arrl.org and the nts.ema.arrl.org as well.
I apologize for any inconveniences. 73,
Michael P. Neilsen, W1MPN, EMa SEC
