Internet Office News

CyberGuy and Jam3z have completed the new Shadow Academy site, and I must say, it looks quite fancy. While I'm not sure if the HM is ready to release it to the public just yet, I can tell you it looks great.

EH Domain redesign is now discussing some of the finer points of design and implementation between each other and GA Ronin. We hope to finalize some decisions this coming week and progress to the next stage.

IOA Thorin has released a template for squadron sites until SquadFirst is released. You can download it at - it requires no knowledge of HTML or PHP whatsoever (though it does require a PHP server) unless you want to modify it yourself.

Speaking of SquadFirst, Alex Foley has finally completed it! I will inspect the code this weekend, and hopefully it will be fully documented and released this weekend for all to use!

I'd like to make clear to some people that if you want me to update your moderator status on the EH Message Boards, don't just tell me your username, also tell me the username I need to de-moderate. It makes it so much easier for me. So be nice.

This week I dealt with the investigation of a hack on the Imperial University site. HTTP logs revealed that a non-EH hacker exploited a security flaw in the FusionPHP news system the site was using. As a result, I'd like to request that anyone who plans on using pre-made software, besites PHPNuke or PostNuke, please let me know so I can take a look at it and make sure there are no problems. This is just a request, but if it gets to be an issue, it will enter into an official rule in the Guidelines.

Also, there has been a recent virus epidemic in the EH. First off, I'd like to clarify that warnings about jdbgmgr.exe being a virus IS A HOAX (thanks to Darksaber for pointing this out). Do not delete it. Further information is available at

Also, KLEZ viruses are abound. Do not download anything you are unsure of! ESPECIALLY .PIF FILES! KLEZ viruses often infect these types of files. If you receive an email you suspect to be infected, email the message headers to me at Also, if you recognize any of the following IP addresses, contact the IO immediately: [] []

That's all for this week. On a side note, the previous poll (which lasted a little longer than usual) about whether a credits system should be implemented EH-wide had 41% (42 votes) saying Yes, 21% (22 votes) saying No because there would be no use, and 17% (18 votes) saying just plain No.
