Banner82 attack

Well, this week has seen us become victim to a nefarious SQL injection attack, those pesky folk hacking websites, brought our site down.

My web guy asked me had i pissed anyone off or had any enemies that would want to bring the site down. Well, it was easier to work out who my friends were rather than enemies.

So site is back, re-coded it, changed data input, stuck on some padlocks for good measure and we are back in action.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/ , this is one heck of a site, the knowledge level here is pretty high and provided us with a starting point to fixing the site, but to be fair Brian at http://www.brianwatson.co.uk/ came up with his own take on hte matter and fixed the thing
