Oops, perhaps they should have left it to the IT department after all.  Me and my big mouth eh.  :legit:

Seriously though, not a good time for the site to be down, after everyone's gone home for the weekend.  ???

It's probably the most interest they have shown in the site for a long time.
Shame.
May the Force be with you.

The forums are still down.  I am sure this is outsourced so they will have to wait.  That or they are waiting for the Linux Format guys to get in to fix it.  Their forum is up and they manage it themselves :)

I get the feeling it may be down for a while, or it maybe the cleaner unplugged the server to hoover and forgot to plug it back in again;)

Just read that the DCW form has been shut down permanently. Apparently to expensive for them.
Luckily this site is here.

Just found this:

Important security update about Future forums

PC Gamer

Last week on the 19th July 2013 we discovered that PC Gamer's vBulletin-powered forum had been the target of a malicious attack. Immediate action was taken to shut the forum which blocked the attack and we have since been thoroughly investigating the damage done and how this attack took place.

We have no evidence that any of the PC Gamer's users' details were stolen. However we feel it is safest to keep the forum closed until we are satisfied that the security vulnerability in the software is fixed. Information on the progress of this will be communicated via the PCGamer site.


Other Future Forums

If you are seeing this message it is because this vBulletin forum has been closed as a precautionary measure. We have no evidence this forum has been compromised, however we are investigating each forum in our network individually to be sure this is the case.

The website teams will be in touch with more information on the progress of this as soon as it becomes available.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience caused, we take our user's security very seriously and we appreciate your patience.



It'll probably be some time before everything is up and running again.
DCW competition regulars can join us here on CC, while they wait for the other site to get back on line.

You posted this at the same time as I copied the post from DCW.
Where did you get that information? Or did I just miss it by a nano second?
