Dating site software asp internet times out when updating iphone
I haven’t really found a good review of Ska Date out there, so I asked Max Chadwick to collaborate with me on a review.
(Max provided some design, system configuration and project management, and I focused on back end system setup and data migration.) Updated 4/2: We used Ska Date 7.5, versions 14. Skadate pluses: I think Ska Date is a good choice for a basic dating site; if you need just the features in the demo and you’re willing to spend some time unraveling the administration UI and you are on a tight budget.
Frind's account of the POF hack, however, is a bit more juicy - and weird.
Frind on Monday published a lengthy blog post that he said was not an official statement from his company but instead a "a personal post about what it feels like to be hacked /extorted and the intense pressure and stress you are put under." According to Frind, Russo contacted him to say that Russian hackers had taken over Russo's computer, were downloading the site's database, and had threatened to kill Russo.
"This vulnerability was under active explotation by hackers," Fenochietto wrote.
Fenochietto said he started an e-mail conversation with Annie Kanciar, the wife of POF chief executive Marcus Frind, "who was very thankfull [sic] with us, and contacted one of their developers in order to inform about this flaw," Fenochietto wrote.
"Plentyoffish is bringing on several security companies to perform an external security audit, and will take all measures necessary to make sure our users are safe." The hackers in question, however, said that they simply informed POF about a vulnerability with its system and offered to work with the site to fix the problem.
In an e-mail, Luca Fenochietto and Chris Russo said they discovered the problem on January 21, which exposed users details, including usernames, addresses, phone numbers, real names, e-mail addresses, passwords in plain text, and in most of cases, Pay Pal accounts, of more than 28 million users.
Last year, Argentinian hackergroup Insilence, led by Russo, gained access to the database of the Pirate Bay.Frind said he told Russo and Fenochietto that he would "sue them out of existence if the data comes out." He then apparently e-mailed Russo's mother, but did not say if that helped the situation.While this is going on, Frind said he received a phone call from former Washington Post reporter Brian Krebs asking about the security breach.Russo was allegedly in a panic and told Frind that he had to fly to Argentina or Washington, DC to help stop the attacks.Russo "says the Russians have complete access to everything including our bank accounts, and they want to steal about million from a string of dating sites including ours," Frind wrote.
Note that we had a challenge not present for a typical Ska Date installation: migrating ~1100 user accounts (and mail messages) from one unknown system to another. Expect some bugs and frustrations, but hey, you only paid $350!
