Portal gone?

Why is the main portal of R/F not here anymore?

My speed dial used to take me to it, now I go to the index

I really hate using the since last visit link cuz what if I want to go back to a thread I just looked at, it doesn't show up unless someone posts on it.

Hey guys. sorry. been really swamped fixing sites.

Unfortunately what gave us the portal was a 3rd party application which is free to use.

February an email went out saying the free app had an exploit with various options for resolution. Obviously, 1 solution was the removal of the app all together and just stop dealing with the hacks.

The exploit was in all versions, so it was not about upgrading when we first got the email and an upgrade alone requires hours of effort with installation, config and the big time eater, testing.

Also note this is the 2nd 3rd party app to have been compromised in the last few weeks. Both affecting thousands of sites and requiring tons of repairs and work.

I have created a redirect for now.
