Welcome Back @ TechTricksWorld(TTW)

A very profound welcome to the magnificent readers of TechTricksWorld. I’m utmost happy to welcome you back. πŸ™‚ Okay, let me break the ice now! I know you highly inquisitive to know what happened to TTW recently. In direct words β€œWhy the site went down?”

Let me begin by telling you that I didn’t myself know about the mishap. Actually, a colleague of mine called me on 2nd February around 12.30 am and told me that TTW is not showing. Rather it’s showing a database error. Honestly speaking, I got hugely flabbergasted. My anxiety knew no bounds and I began wondering what would have happened.

And-We are-Back

I went for my laptop and entered the words β€œTechtricksworld.com” in the web browser as speedily as I could. A screen appeared in front of me a database error! I initially thought there might be some glitch on server as it happens sometimes but then I realised that it was the attempt to deface our website. A gigantic thunderbolt struck me! I found out that there was an external attack over TTW through Control Panel and an attempt to delete the database was made. I quickly picked my phone and told my very dear friend cum business partner Zainil about the same.

We then realised that the same attacked happened over our other 2 blogs too; namely 2012Onwards and Stoogles.

Me and Zainil got into our element and put the site into the maintenance mode and started recovering the sites. Β After putting hours of taxing efforts, I’m ecstatic to let you know that the major part of the total data has been successfully recovered on TTW by me and Zainil; and the fact that TTW is up now! πŸ™‚ We are trying our best to recover the entire data with serious efforts. Hopefully, TTW will be back with fully loaded data soon.

Meanwhile, I want to say a deep and heartfelt THANK YOU to our friends and supporters who gave us the timely notification regarding the predicament. A special thanks to my eSister Sugandha, Peter Lee, Payal Bansal, Anurag Jain etc… who got some time Β from their busy schedule to notify about the TTW status that is was not working and supported us with positive vibes n courage during the mishap recovery period.

To our readers! Sorry for the inconvenience caused and thanks a trillion for your understanding and support! If you have anything to discuss, please contact us.

  • Atish,

    Thanks for revealing these facts!

    OMG!!!! The whole day I was not at home, so I didn’t know that TTW was not opening for the whole day.

    Anyway, it is really good that you guys have fixed the issues and happy to see TTW live again πŸ™‚

    Well done Atish n Zainil, but it is really hard to digest that someone tried to attack your blogs.

    Keep tracking your blogs and wish you to work more.

  • That’s not just another blog for me Tish Tish….. I know what these blogs mean to you. And you know what you mean to me and Suggi. You are our dear, dear brother πŸ™‚

    I am so glad you are back with a bang, giving a tight slap on the face of those people who tried to attack your blogs. I know what kind of attachment we build with our blogs with passing time.

    So so so Happy. Have a great blogging life Tish Tish. All the very best and if any help is needed just ping me anytime πŸ™‚

  • Hiii Bro,
    Thank God! you became able to fix the problem very quickly. when I visited techtricksworld around 2:30 am, I saw only black Screen with few notifications then I thought that may be Atish is implementing something new in techtricksworld.

    But now you are back so this is really enjoying moment. welcome back Techtricksworld πŸ™‚

  • aaah! nice to see it back Atish. Good that you took action in the right time and had the database backup in handy. I’m not that active these days but today morning when I saw “welcome message” I was little bit confused as of what happened. Then came to know the entire story. Finally All is well πŸ™‚

  • Apparently there was a plot to destroy your blogging empire as 3 blogs got attacked at the same time is no coincidence if you asked me. Glad you and Zainil managed to get everything sorted out so quick and show those with bad intentions that they have messed with the wrong guys here! πŸ™‚

    • I really wish the evil of defacing goes out of the blogosphere, and loses its existence forever ! !

      Just a note that I read few days back; over 2000 Indian blogs have been defaced in the previous week. The blog of a famous Indian Star – Poonam Pandey was also defaced. Looks like the hackers are on a shopping spree to India ! ! πŸ™

      Its been heard that Pakistani and Turkish group of hackers are attacking over the blogs.

      Moreover even the site of Angry Birds was hacked in the last week ! ! 😯

  • I was not able to access the blog for a while. Hope everything would have been fine.. Thanks that you are back again.

  • Happy To See TTW Live again. Just coz your and Zainil’s Hardwork πŸ™‚

    Its great to know that most of the site’s backup has been recovered by you guys.
    Nice to see you up again on the Internet.

    I hope you guys have some experience now how to protect a site from hacker’s attack.
