Melanie, below is the CTO Site News updated (dated 9/19/15):


"There are a few important things to report on this month. The first is the recent problem of having the site pages redirecting to pages containing viruses. This is being caused by a security hole in our version of Joomla that is allowing a hacker to get in and add some lines of code to the file that runs our template. Our member Lollerskates (John) has found the malicious code and removed it, but it keeps being inserted again. We're not yet sure how that is happening, but he has created a script (called a Cron job) to check the template files once every 60 seconds, and replace them with a clean copy if they have changed. With this and a good anti virus everyone should be able to visit CTO safely.

The next exciting piece of news is that Joan has made arrangements with John to transfer the site to a new company that is going to host CTO. It will be less expensive and our disk space will double from the 80GB that we currently have to 160GB. This will give us all the space we could ever need for our ever growing stash of Sims files! The transfer is scheduled for on or around October 15th.
Once that transfer is complete they are going to upgrade all of the software, including Joomla. This might require the site being off line for a few days to complete. This should fix all of the problems that we are currently having with the software, including the recent issue of getting redirected."

People are slowly trickling back, and report having no further problems. I hope this helps!!
