I have been asked to first apologise to all and to explain what has happened to the site.
The notice board is just back up and the losgigantes.com team are tied up sorting out the rest of the site, the apartment rentals are being worked on now and the photo galleries and news will be sorted next.
What happened? The losgigantes.com hosting server and the site has been ?hacked? the losgigantes.com team are working franticly to restore the site, however this is proving to be much more complicated than first thought according to Chris the web master as ?thousands of lines of code? (no I don?t know what he?s talking about either) have been affected. The losgigantes.com team hope to have it sorted in the next twenty four hours.
Which brings me on to the subject of what the numpties who hack sites, or write viruses get out of it.
In many cases it could be a personal attack on the site, from competition or disgruntled ex employees, the other scenario is ?it?s just a game? the hackers against the web master or hosting provider, the final scenario is one that is becoming increasingly significant is the politically / ethnically / religiously motivated attack, many viruses hacking tools etc are written by groups, who wish to see the economies of the west and western businesses collapse.
On a local level losgigantes.com is one of the most popular sites in Tenerife unfortunately that makes it a target for the numpties. It just wastes so much time
Once again sorry from the team (although it?s not their fault) for any inconvenience caused on your favourite local web site.
What do you all think about Hackers / Virus writers
