Just had to go my first full day without Ausmicro since the hack.
And I didnt like it, I had the day off work too.
Firstly, Aaron, what happened?
Secondly, well done for getting us up and running again.
To quote our ISP…
Hi All, xxxxxxx has *major* problems, the resolution will require a complete backup/restore of the system.
Affected customers will be notified in advance of this work – we expect it to be carried out within the next 7 days and is expected to take approx 24-48 hours.
We realise that the quality of service has been poor due to this ongoing issue, rest assured we do have a sense of ‘fair play’ and wish to compensate for this outage. Customers will be contacted accordingly.
I know this has been the case since we moved to a gruntier server during last year. The new server has been a problem for them with odd crashes and the like. I belive once they sort them we will be running faster and better than ever.
When this downtime occurs I will keep ausmicro.com down a little longer to do some major DB/code interaction updates to improve our processing speed as well.
