Wfypaawhtft site security upgrades

Security issues on the webserver host have affected some webpages of this site during April 2010.
FTP services for this site on the 12th of April were affected – and have remained denigrated due to a high level of activity on this site web server host.
On the 24th of April, 2010 at 02:33 (delivered for the weekend) a version of an exploit had affected pages which were redirected to an unmaintained malware attack server 🙁

By the 24th of April, 2010 at 16:29 the affected pages have been restored from backup files; And files on the site have been tested for malware infections but none were found 🙂
Minor Issues found from the affected pages has led to a paranoid level of upgraded security for PHP content management systems used by this site.
Downloads and other functions of the site, or its host have not been affected but will remain under consistent re-testing.

A very special note of THANKS must go to Google, Microsoft, Opera, and Firefox development teams for the security enhancements which in this case prevented distribution of affected pages

    The php mail() command isn’t sending code-key emails. See Server Status for information.
