Access denied to certain IP addresses

The main Sunward site, and affiliated sites, will now deny access to certain IP's address (Internet Protocol).  Most of these are based in China.

We did this after monitoring repeated and consistent attacks on the Sunward server.  The attacks were attempts to access pages with administrator privileges.

In addition, we have also restricted the use of some email accounts that were used in other attacks. Most of these are also based in China.

We will not publish the list of the IP's and emails sites and they can change at any time.

Spam Measures

There has been a lot of spam coming into our mailbox lately and it is getting annoying.  So we have implemented some simple changes to cut down on the obvious spam.

These measures include:

Orders now viewable online

Orders that you have in place, both being shipped and shipped, are now viewable online.

A security setting was not checked and this resulted in clients not being able to see their own orders.

New web site done

Well, we did it!

We updated the new site.  It now runs on Drupal/ Ubercart and will have now ported all the old material to this new system of running a web site.  There are a couple of ends to clean up, but it is pretty much done.

The new site will not be a problem when it comes to security.  We have hardware and software protection built in. We don't keep or even have access to your credit card information.  That is done through our payment gateway, Paypal, who is known for their security.
