The site was shut down for several hours this morning as a precaution. There were exploited scripts uploaded to a directory and the shutdown was done to give time to remove the malicious scripts and patch the exploited programs.

This was actually an issue with the image hosting I had setup to a sub-domain of this site. Rather than go crazy over a site/script that is rarely, if ever, used, I have deleted the entire program. My apologies to anyone that was in fact using image.debatepolicy.com & my apologies for the downtime this morning.

well, good news bad news.....the bad news was the exploitation, the good news was that the "You are forbidden" didn't mean I had been permanently banned for some reason........

The only way I was able to do things was to disable "WWW" access while leaving FTP & CPanel access open so that I could delete/manage the files and keep the site secure while I was updating.

More updating of files will likely occur in the near future but I will forewarn everyone if it will require any downtime.
