Bodyinflation.org down
 
So, I wanted to go to Bodyinflation.org to leave that website, since I visit it so rarely I forgot I even had an account there to begin with, but I just noticed it's been down for a while. I've heard it's because of a "critical vulnerability" in the site, which should have been fixed in a few days, but the site's been down for a month or two and I haven't seen any more news.

Does anyone here have more news on when it should come back up? I doubt it's too serious since I haven't seen anyone mention it here, but you never know, and I tend to worry way too much about this sort of thing; I wouldn't want what little info I have on there to be hacked from a site I forgot I even had an account on. What do you guys think?

i'm guessing its a lot more work than he thought.
it looks like he's been pretty busy but Luthervk has been posting on twitter when he's able to get work in on it.
his last post about it was on the 29th.
"Got in a couple of hours of server work. Making progress."

Thanks for the news, that's slightly reassuring. Still, the sooner he gets it back up, the better; I tend to worry way too much about these things.

they just posted this on their DA journal:

"Making Progress

by LutherVKane, 1 hour and 19 minutes ago
Journals / Personal

Thought it's taken much longer than originally expected, most of the work to bring the site back online is done. We should be live and (mostly) functional sometime this weekend. During the downtime the anti-spam service that I relied on (Mollom) shut down, so I'll have to find a replacement. Otherwise, things are looking good."

as for WHY the site was down,
i found this in the forums.

posted by throwaway261 on Bodyinflation.org

"This website is built using a website creation and management tool called Drupal. Sometime around the beginning of the year, a massive security hole was found in Drupal, and Kane took the site down out of caution. As Kane self-hosts the site in his spare time, and does so without assistance, patching Drupal was one of those 'I’ll get to it when I have time' things. Apparently, Kane is very busy in the non-fetish world, and Drupal is a headache and a half to fix when it’s broken."
