    BGR site hack

    Folks it looks like the registration process has been hacked. I've had 300+ registrations from the same source in the last couple of minutes mostly trying database insertion type techniques.

    I'm trying to sort it out but not sure how it started so might take a time to work out.

    In the interim if anyone wishes to register then it's best to email me directly.

    Hi All,

    It looks like things are back up and running. Tried a registration this morning and all behaved as normal.

    I'd fixed most things and tidied up the litter last night but the mail facility wasn't working - quite possibly there's a daily limit imposed by the hosting company (would make sense) and the hacker exceeded that, I ended up with over 500 spam emails!

    Still, it exposed one or two weaknesses in the defences so got those nailed down.
