Why MT Forum was down for a month? - admin - 20-09-2017

MT Forum is the India's largest medical transcriptionists community. It servers as a medium for the employers and employees to connect through. Several small organizations depend solely on MT Forum to find the best talent.

In the month of August 2017, MT Forum got hacked and the files were injected with malicious code, which caused the server to go down. It was quickly noted and replaced with fresh set of files, but again it was hacked and this happened for 3 or 4 times.

Finally, we had to take the help of a security firm to clean the files of hacking code and purchased a cloud server with enough firewalls to prevent the hack and maintain a good up-time.

In this process, no data has been lost. All your posts are there and nothing has happened to your data.

To maintain the forum, we require money and manpower. We spent few hundred dollars on cleaning the site and few more on purchasing a cloud server. I request the employers and employees who got benefited through MT Forum to come forward and contribute to keep the forum live.
