So are we saying that they've shut it down altogether? Iv'e not been there for years, but I do spend quite a bit of time on BikeRadar, which I believe is part of the same group, also TechRadar along with a few other "Radar" sites seem to be thriving! How very odd!  :uglystupid2:


Graham, I think you'll find those sites that are still running are using different forum software, I believe it was the ones running VBulletin that were affected.  Anything still running VBulletin, will be updated or patched accordingly.  I have mentioned a few times that the version used on DCW, and music radar were out of date, and needed upgrading for security reasons. But did they listen, no they chose to ignore it.

Thank You, "Guest" For Reading This Post.

Oh right......Still no desire to go back!  :tup:
