we would like to announce that the newest version of WordPress has been released (2.8.5). The headline changes in this release include:
• a fix for the Trackback Denial-of-Service attack that is currently being seen,
• removal of areas within the code where php code in variables was evaluated,
• switched the file upload functionality to be whitelisted for all users including admins,
• retiring of the two importers of Tag data from old plugins.
We would recommend that all sites are upgraded to this new version of WordPress to ensure that you have the best available protection.
Do not forget to upgrade all your scripts, especially Coppermine, because many of you use old versions which is not a good idea at all.
as you may have noticed, there is a minor problem with one of our servers, namely S4. We are working on providing a solution to this issue as soon as possible. The problem with harddrives occured and they will be replaced with new ones. It may take a few days. Do not worry, your data is safe. We have the most recent backups. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for understanding.
We have a brand new Joe Jonas domain for adoption. If you are interested in adopting joe-jonas.us and you are a huge fan of Joe or Jonas Brothers, do not hesitate and apply for it! In order to apply for joe-jonas.us, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
CW’s new television drama series, “The Beautiful Life: TBL,” premieres on 16 September 2009. In connection with this, Flaunt Network has decided on buying some domains for their current and future users. More domains may be available upon request.
In order to adopt one of these domains, send an email to email@example.com and attach a layout of yours.
We are glad to inform that the new backup system has been introduced to all servers which resulted in all data being completely secure now.
the backup system introduced to one of the servers (S4) has performed well. This has resulted in the server working much more efficiently. Therefore, we are going to introduce the same backup systems on the other servers in two or three weeks’ time.
What is more, we are working on a special system which would check all the servers and their services and notify the administrators when something stops working. This will facilitate removing the problem much faster as the staff is going to be notified of the problem via SMS.
The Flaunt Network wishes to provide high quality services to their users and we do really hope that you are in favour of new innovations.
we have been working on a new backup system of your files. This new system has been already implemented to one of the servers (server #4). If it proves successful, it will be introduced to the remaining servers as well. The old system overloaded the servers pretty much which resulted in your fansites working a bit slower. The new system is much more efficient and fansites will work much faster. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Dear S2 Users,
one the harddrives on the server #2 has been replaced today. RAID is being rebuilt at the moment and it may take a couple of days. During this time, your fansites located on this server may work a bit slower. As soon as this process is successfully completed, everything will work as fast as usual. Sorry for the inconvenience.
we would like to express our apologies for the downtime which occured yesterday/today. Such long downtime occured for the first time and hopefully the last one. It was caused by a minor breakdown on two servers, including the main one. Everything is going back to normal at the moment. We are very sorry for this situation, but we do hope you decide on staying with Flaunt. Contact us if you have any problems.
