I had thought that the jump in visits this weekend was because of the auction but this morning I received an email from a law firm that was researching a child pornographer and discovered that there were porn pages on this site. I found 2000 pages that had been added to our photo section on the 18th. they were structured so they would not show up in a normal directory search using the web host tools. I found them and deleted them and hopefully I have patched the hole. If anyone has a problem uploading a photo please tell me and I will see what I can do to fix it.

The sad thing in looking at the stats is our visits doubled which means that there are as many people wanting to look at child porn as there is people looking for bamboo. :cry:

ICK!!! I hope you emailed the lawyer back to double check that the porn had been removed! If there are records of the IP numbers of people getting those images you might also send them to the lawyer.

Good idea on collecting the IP addresses. I have the logging turned on so I should have them.

I will forward them after my power gets turned back on. ( in a couple of minutes they are going to replace a power pole outside)
