Since the publication of the MRI Staff List 2007 there have been several attempts to hack the MRISG servers. These have been serious attempts to overcome server security.
There have also been some attempts to hack the administrator login accounts.
Please be aware that none of these attempts have been successful and Dream Host have been informed and are activley investigating the origin and identity of the attacks. If these hackers are identified Dream Host will refer the matter to the FBI because they clearly breach Federal Law.
It is also worthy of note that the number of attempts to post spam on the blog has significantly risen. 503 spam messages have been deleted today and 387 users registred on the site who either use know spammer e-mail addresses or come from IP addresses know to be used by spammers. This increase does not affect the operation of the blog as automated protection is in place to prevent such abuse.
MRISG Members can rest assured that both server security and personal security is taken very seriously. As a team of highly qualified IT experts maintain this website and forum for you no successful incidents of brute force, SQL Injection, cross site scripting, back door injection, automated injection, remote injection etc… have occurred although it is know that many attempts have been made in the past 3 years.
It does make the MRISG Administrators wonder why the sudden increase of attacks on or around the 3rd year anniversary of this website going live.
I leave that to members to comment.

FOOTBALL boss Darragh MacAnthony faced a court grilling over claims his company swindled holiday home owners out of hundreds of thousands of euros.
The Dublin-born entrepreneur was quizzed for nearly two hours by a Spanish judge about his property empire and a furniture sales sideline.
Mr MacAnthony, once estimated to be worth €180m, was chaffeur-driven to the court in upmarket Marbella to answer allegations of “misappropriation of funds and theft by swindle.”
Dozens of ex-customers sparked the probe after complaining nearly €500,000 worth of furniture, ordered more than five years ago from his company for apartments in Morocco, Bulgaria and Cape Verde, was never delivered.
The Peterborough United chairman declined to comment as he left after the hearing behind closed doors and was driven away to the luxury hotel where he is staying in a €2,650-a-night private villa.
Four other business associates linked to his property firm MacAnthony Realty International were also questioned.
Investigating judge Beatriz Gomez-Escolar is probing allegations MacAnthony and his business associates misappropriated around €550,000 from 56 customers and stripped MRI of its assets before a de facto closing as part of an elaborate fraud involving the use of an OAP frontman.
The investigation into MRI’s business practices launched in January after a group of 51 buyers ratified an earlier claim that €492,000 of furniture they ordered for holiday homes was never delivered.
Five more people have since come forward to claim they were victims as well.
MRI has consistently denied any allegations of wrongdoing.
Mr MacAnthony, who has not been charged with any crime, has said in the past: “There are no foundations behind these allegations. I certainly didn’t do anything wrong and neither did anyone with MRI when I was there.”
