I wasn't aware that this is still being used so much. Happy to contribute this way:-)

PostPosted: Tue 10 Nov 2009, 13:24    Post subject: webspace closed down  

I am very sorry to announce that my donated webspace was closed down by servage due to abuse of the account by uploading illegal software. At present the ftp-account is closed but the files are still there (of course not the illegal ones!)
Anybody using this webspace pleas get in touch with me, maybe we can figure out a solution, probably without posting the password in the forum.
Greetings,
Germanpup

Hi to all,

unfortunately this was already the 2nd time somebody abused this account for illegal trades. 1st time it was "only" some movie, now it was an illegal copy of some antivirus program, ironically a windows program such as one can find in places like bittorrent ...

I Think the problem is
1. that I posted the access data publically
2. there are issues with servage, people keep intruding my homepages there quite frequently.

I still would like to support the community and hence would be grateful for any suggestions. As far as the uploaded stuff concerns, all is still there, maybe I can move it some place safer.

I just hate the idea of either myself or this community being dragged into issues of software piracy and such, that is why I now not just open the account back up.

GP

Hallo Joachim,

you might offer someone to look at the space, so you have a kind of admin, moderator.
Maybe some of those guys who keep puppylinux.org running.

On dotpups.de and puppyisos.org (both at servage, too) I use this strategy:

When someone uploaded a file, he must inform me (in your case the admin).
I then move it to the "www" folder (have some subfolders there).
So people do not download from /ftp , but from /www.
So they just see the "right" files, not the junk.

The moderator also might delete those files from /ftp, that sometimes appear there after being hacked.
I often have there an asian game, it even reappears after changing passwords.
Fortunately no other files are deleted, just once it happened.
But this only affected the "temporary" /ftp folder, not /www.
/www is not accessable via ftp in my setup.

If you like to clarify some questions, you also may call me after 19.00 or at weekend.
I can send you my telefone number via PM.
Or we might meet in a Cafe in Mannheim, it is not far from here Smile

Mark

Hallo Mark,

you are absolutely right. I use my webspace for business purpose mainly hence it doesn't cost me much to support puppy this way. Maybe I find the time to do this over as you recommend, I have to admit I didn't watch the ups and downs too closely, I might be a little naive regarding this, but surely I cannot allow illegal activity, I like the puppy too much for exposing him or myself to any such issue.

Joachim
