selenay: (you're kidding me)
My lovely hosts, FutureQuest, have helped me to get rid of all the compromised files and they have blocked the IP that the hack originated in. They have been wonderful and incredibly fast to respond to everything, which is amazing on a Sunday afternoon.

I always write and update the site on my local hard drive, so I was able to restore everything to its pre-hacked state with no problems. It doesn't look like the hackers compromised the data in the reviews database, which is a relief!

That has been moved to a regular updating schedule, just in case.

The vulnerability was an old version of phyMyAdmin, which I have removed and I will be reviewing what I use in future to administer the databases. The hackers were able to use that to inject code in my index files and .htaccess files, which redirected everyone to a site that I assume then installed lots of nasties onto peoples' machines. If anyone visited The Haven between 20th October and 24th October, you should check your anti-virus and anti-spam things to make sure your machines were not attacked.

I apologise for this and I wish that I had detected the issues earlier. It is the first time the site has been hacked in the ten years that I have been running it, which I am trying to tell myself is a good running average although right now it doesn't feel like it.

Basic message: website restored and now protected better. Never believe it won't happen to you because it can.

OK, it looks like www.selenayhaven.com (my site) got hacked during the week (thank you [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 for the heads up!).

I have removed/replaced all the files that got replaced (it appears to have just been anything that called index.xxx), changed my password and reported the hack to my hosts.

Anyone know what other steps I need to take?

I have no idea how long all the virus thingies are going to keep telling people that my site is compromised :-(

One is for Gossip Girl and the other is for a collection of fandoms with ties to Due South. Very cool idea, IMO :-)

- Those 20 reviews takes the arcive up to 497 reviews in total. Three more reviews and we'll make the even 500 review mark so I'll be looking for three great fics over the next couple of weeks and trying to think of ways to mark the occasion.

Stargate Atlantis: 4

Buffy, Doctor Who (cross-over): 1

There are two new reviews up at Haven Reviews. Both of them are slash, both of then are for mighty fine fics:

Doctor Who, Torchwood (cross-over): 1
NCIS: 1
selenay: (Ancient City)
The Haven has been updated and the first update of the year is a bit of a bumper edition.

Firstly, a newsletter for Life on Mars fans has been added to the Fandom Newsletter Index. From there I have also gleaned that Ashes to Ashes should be starting in the first week in February. Yay!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 fearlessly wading in and reading a ton of Yuletide fics, there are 19 new reviews up at Haven Reviews in a mixture of slash, gen and het:

Pushing Daisies: 4
Discworld: 3
Doctor Who: 3
Blakes 7: 1
Coupling: 1
Harry Potter: 1
Highlander, Holby City (cross-over): 1
Quantum Leap: 1
Spooks: 1
The Avengers: 1
Torchwood: 1
Vorkosigan series: 1

I'm predicting that this will be a great year for fic so read, enjoy and remember to send feedback to the authors of your favourites.

It's a little bit corny, but then so are most festive fics. May I present:

An Atlantis Fairytale
selenay: (Ancient City)
Haven Reviews has been updated with four new reviews:

Doctor Who: 2
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: 1
Stargate Atlantis: 1

I seem to have a review each in het, gen, f/f and m/m slash and they're all festive-themed. If you haven't had enough festive fic yet, I've got an index of more seasonal fic reviews to satisfy everyone's needs! If you're fed up with festive stuff, just browse the rest of the archive and hide with a good long fic :-)

There is also a new addition to the Newsletter Index for the Chuck fandom.

In two ticks, I will be posting my contribution to the festive fic. Have a wonderful holiday season, everyone, no matter what you will be celebrating.

The Haven has been updated at last!

There is a new review up at Haven Reviews for a West Wing fic that looks very good. The Newsletter Index has also been updated with some extra information on a Star Wars newsletter.

And what have I contributed? Well, I dusted off my icon-making skills:

Two Doctors Two Doctors Seventh Doctor and Ace

The usual rules apply: please do not hotlink, I'd love to hear from you if you take any and credit would be lovely.
selenay: (Ancient City)
With the able assistance of [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 I have two new newsletters up in the Fandom Newsletter Index: one for all the Doctor/Rose shippers wondering where the Doctor/Rose stuff went and one for het shippers of all flavours.
selenay: (Ancient City)
There are five new reviews up at Haven Reviews in a mixture of slash and gen:

Doctor Who: 2
Stargate Atlantis: 2
Lord of the Rings, Famous Five (cross-over): 1

I forgot an important mile-stone in my update earlier in the week: as of 1st October, The Haven is seven years old. It seems impossible that I've been doing this for that long, but apparently I have!

Hopefully there will be fic later in the week.
