    Addons returning one at a time

    After the malware attack we suffered this week, I disabled all of the 3rd-party add-ons that we use. I don't know if it was one of those that allowed the security hole or not, but I suspect that it was. We currently don't have the following:

    RPBs on most pages
    Like/Thank You System
    Awards System
    Arcade

    I'm going to add these back one at a time with a day or two inbetween. If we're attacked again, it might give me a better idea which of these is the culprit. I'll begin by reenabling the RPBs.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    I got there just in time, then. LOL.

    Awards are back!

    The Arcade may take more than a day or two. If I had to pick a problem addon, the one most likely to be a security risk, I would pick the Arcade. It will be back, just not as quick as the other addons were returned.
