Exclamation Attention: Casino temporarily closed

As we try to figure out how the hackers are getting in.

Since the last outbreak until yesterday, I was very selective in when I opened new user registration. Only opening it when I was available to monitor. I would purge questionable users before they even got a chance to complete registration.

I thought this was working. But registration was closed all weekend and we got hit again yesterday.

We are losing members left and right, and it is hard to blame them.

In an attempt to see if it is the culprit, I have disabled the Casino.

This is what I posted in the other thread for all I can see for solutions. I am open to thoughts and ideas:

A permanent solution is not so easy because of our situation here. Possible solutions are:

Get rid of the Casino. It is a known vulnerability, but a lot of people here like it. Also, I do not know for sure if this is the way they are getting in.

Completely closing new user registration.

The real solution here (which probably also means losing the Casino), is updating the board software. As most of you know, I do not own .com or the board itself. I need to rely on Austin at Chiefsplanet for any changes at the software level. He has been unresponsive to me the last few times I have tried to contact him. So there is nothing I can do here.

The last solution would be to abandon patriotsplanet.com and start anew at patriotsplanet.net or a new domain. I would have the control and the ownership necessary to make any software upgrades needed. We would lose our history here and probably more users in the transition.

That is most of what I can think of, and they all suck in their own way.
