I've posted twice now, behind the scenes, that something funny is going on.

Be prepared for another forced password reset.

I think someone has hacked in because a 'guest' was able to post a long spam entry that I couldn't shift.

When I reported it a few days ago, no VS reply, I noticed missing posts then as well.

I was getting database error when trying to connect; May well be that they've rolled back the SQL to a backup.

That's what it looks like, but, 48hrs later the posts mysteriously reappear.

Work that one out.

Something strange going on and so far no info from VS.

If you use same password here as anywhere else I'd change the other places if they are risky.

VS remain silent over this, I'll bump my query again.

Something odd is going on that they don't want to tell us about yet.


The other advice I can suggest, that I did after the 2016 major hack, was to have a single 'burner' email addy that I only use here.

Wouldn't explain the time being off by ~3 hours, Unless there is a date offset?
I've now enabled DST Correction.

If the usercp settings are resaved, will it fix the issue?
