ADSL1 To ADSL2 Offer

We have been on an ADSL1 plan for a while. We have often checked to see if we are able to have ADSL2 and consistently it indicates that we can not . However we have now received an email from Exetel pressing us to upgrade to ADSL2. The offer and suggestion would be good, however when we check, we st...

Moodle

I have been looking for a place to host a small moodle site. I am considering the paid space as shown at http://www.exetel.com.au/w_web_hosting.php I was wondering whether such a space (200MB) would be suitable. The required php version for the soon to be released version 2 of moodle is 5.2.8 and ot...

I suspect this

Re: SMS Account hijacked

If my theory is correct, the villains are in Nigeria, where there is no effective police force, and corruption rules.

Re: SMS Account hijacked

The Live support link at the top of the page allowed us to chat to confirm that the password and email has not been changed, and that it may be the account is locked to protect our account. Looks like you need to be filing a crime report with the Australian Federal Police. Probably a good idea to ta...

Re: SMS Account hijacked

I really want the SMS turned off and unable to be turned on so that I can be confident this does not happen again.
How can I sleep tonight knowing that someone is racking up an enormous SMS bill for us and we can do nothing about it.

Re: SMS Account hijacked

The password was reasonably strong (text and numbers). The pieces of evidence that I can see are as follows: 1. The first 3 SMS messages were to Nigerian mobiles. The messages were not the SPAM sms sent by the other thousands of messages. 2. I have a friend in Nigeria (no I mean they are Australians...

Re: SMS Account hijacked

Thanks again.
I was getting mixed up with all the different passwords. Access to web mail is now OK.
Email address has also been changed. Thanks for the tip.

My final concern is regarding the huge SMS bill.... ?

Re: SMS Account hijacked

Thank you. Passwords have now been re-set as follows (I had foolishly made them the same before). 1. Password for the account has been changed. 2. Password on the modem to access the account has been changed to match. 3. Email password has been changed (different to account). I have also checked our...

SMS Account hijacked

:shock: Help. Our SMS account has been hijacked. We normally send about 5 SMS messages a month. Now someone has logged in to our account, requested our daily limit to be raised to $500, sent over $500 worth of SMSs, and changed our password (Somehow we can still log-in, but we are unable to change o...

Nervous or confused

OK - is ANYONE using joomla for a fully hosted site with Exetel? At the moment we have a joomla site with Exetel, but we are now concerned from what we have been reading in this thread. Hence we are looking to move it. We have all folders with permissions 755. We thought it was OK. To change any of...
