New User Accounts and Hacking Prevention

As with many websites on the Internet there are, in any one day, hundreds of “attacks” on the Eastry website and Blog – attempting to take over and spread malicious content.

There are a number of measures in place to help prevent such things happening. One of which is a ban on new users registering an account if their email is on a ‘ban’ list. These prospective registrants will receive a message that says they cannot register. If you are a genuine subscriber and receive this message then you should contact the Webmaster, or the Parish Clerk immediately by email. You can then be added as a subscriber.

It is a pity that this is necessary, but I hope you see that faced with constant attack we must do this to protect the site and the information it holds for those in the Parish and elsewhere.
