|Re: My Husband......... by eunisam: 12:35am On Jul 01, 2014|
just do this Fellow Nairalanders,
On Sunday, the 22nd of June,
at exactly 1:00PM, we lost
access to Nairaland's server. I
immediately asked our web
host to fix the problem. They refused to discuss the
situation with me until very
early on Monday morning,
when they told me that
someone hacked their server
management system and used it to gain access to our server.
The hacker deleted everything
on our server, including our
backups which we kept in a
separate disk on the same
server. At that point, I knew that we
had failed you in two ways: by
relying on a web host which
didn't follow security best
practices, which led to their
systems being hacked, and by storing our backups in a
location where anyone who
hacked our primary server
would be able to access them
and delete them. "Luckily", we
recovered 8 years and 10 months of data out of the 9
years and 3 months of data
that was lost, from a remote
backup made in January.
All topics and posts created in
the last 5 months are gone. All users who registered within
the last 5 months will have to
register again. It's awful.
The attackers probably
downloaded our entire
database including your usernames, email addresses,
and password hashes. As a
result of our use of hashing,
salting, and key stretching, it
won't be so easy for the
attackers to steal your passwords if they are strong.
However, we advice every
Nairalander to please change
his/her Nairaland password
immediately. Please logout
and then visit http:// www.nairaland.com/login to use the password reset
You can recover your most
important data using the
technique below (we could
not apply it automatically due to data consistency issues)
1) Search Google for the title of
your thread, e.g. (title of
2) Copy the URL of the page on
Nairaland where the information used to reside
from the search results, e.g. www.nairaland.com/123456/
title-of-thread 3) Search Google's cache for
that URL, e.g. enter this into
(cache:www.nairaland.com/ 123456/title-of-thread )
Here's how we plan to secure
your data in the future:
1) We've moved away from
the host that lost our data to a
very reputable host which is less likely to get hacked.
2) We've started storing our
backups in remote location(s)
that are completely
independent of our primary
server. 3) We're doing a full review of
all our operations in order to
greatly improve security in
every way that we can.
4) We're trying to set up
comprehensive disaster recovery plans so that
Nairaland will survive no
matter what happens.
Nairaland is no longer just
Seun Osewa's lucrative hobby.
It is a vital resource that Nigerians and corporate bodies
rely on. It must be protected
and kept alive at all costs. It
deserves to be managed, not
by one feeble individual, but
by a robust enterprise staffed by professionals who are the
best at what they do. A robust
enterprise that can defend
Nairaland against all threats. I
will devote the rest of my year
to building such an enterprise. If you had some advertising
credit in your account before
the attack, please send an
email to the usual address so
we can sort things out.
Sincerely, Seun Osewa.
PS: We will do everything
within our power to ensure
that people are able to re-
register the usernames that
they held before the incident

I tink u shud continue the story from wia u stopped buh u can help pple who jst started wit a summary.
|Re: My Husband......... by Flakkydagirl: 3:33pm On Jul 01, 2014|
Its so sad there is no back up,i only have the rough sketches of the entire story....
And there were times,i edited the story while writing,removing some parts and adding others...i was just writing the story for the fun of it and the moral i was hoping to impact,while building my writings....
I wouldn't deny that it hadn't crossed my mind about publishing and with some people clamouring that i publish it,a comment even has it that,if i am being aware of the word count,if i intend to publish to it...
But i just didn't take it seriously,because of what i had in mind.......
That was why when Kingphilip asked if i would give him a copy when it is finally edited and published,i had no response for him..
Right now,i am more confused than ever,how do i summarise a story of over 50pages? And how many pages do i summarise it into?
I wish this hadn't happened,i wouldn't be in a dilemna today...
I thought nairaland was safe,until now....And i hope Oga Seun will do something about this ....

It is a pity sister but I did not follow your story. For some of the stories I followed, I would just open and save them so that at my own convenience I would read them and also go through them at will if need arises for I love stories.
These are the ones I have which you may contact the owners if you can. Some are not complete and just a part and some of which I have not even read:
1. Despite All Odds by BukkyDan (I think complete)
2. The burning cold by Mynd_44 (Only page page 1 - 21)
3. <<THE UNDERCOVER AGENT¤¤Part 1 & 2>> by D9ty7 ( I think it is complete)
4. Nigerian Story - Chocolates And Sushi by glowingscenes (only page 0 - 16)
5. THE FIGHT FOR POWER¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤(The Battle Between The Rich)-----part 1...... by D9ty7 (Only page 0 - 4)
6. What Lurks In The Dark by jayloyexten (I think complete)
7. The Complete Assassin by kayemjay (only Page 0 - 17 and 37)
8. I DO :THE REVELATION - A STORY by Lucentbeauty (Only page 0 - 16)
9. An Evening With Eva by kayemjay (I think it is complete)
10. What Lurks In The Dark by jayloyexten (I think it is complete) (I specially need this contact for a reason if I can be helped)
Some others have been settled.
It is painful about what happened and I ask, if it were somebody that purposely hacked NairaLand causing these great loss, does he know the extent of pains it has caused thousands and millions in this forum. Murder is a very grave sin but some sins may arguably be seen as more grievous.
Even though this may serve as a lesson in a hard way for some, nevertheless, I have a good news for all of you: For it might be necessary to say that IT IS IN YOU. Accept the situation and move on. After all, it is your work that was deleted and not your brain. It is NairaLand that was "Formatted" and not your Brain.
@Flakky, your work has been sent to your email.

I have been trying to post it here but it wouldn't go. Maybe .rar file is not among the files to be posted here or it is a problem with Nairaland that is yet to be corrected.
I had suggested you try accessing your mail and downloading the file from a cybercafe instead of through your phone.
