Arcade trade script website problems - adytt - 27-06-2018

Hello, I own a website that runs the latest version of the arcade trade script cms. Maybe you know that the new owner of Arcade trade script took down his website http://arcadetradescript.com, so now everytime I log in admin panel, I get redirected to his offline website, actually the message of the hosting company stating that website is suspended. Problem is that I have to click on the red X inside my browser window multiple times in order to stop the redirection to be able to work inside the admin panel, to post a new game etc.

Looking inside the CMS php code there are base64 encoded portions of code that work like a license validation trying to comunicate with the non longer existing link http://arcadetradescript.com so if there are here persons that confront with the same problem and managed to solve it, or if there is one that can hack this stupid thing please let me know. I have a valid license for this CMS, yet the owner has never replied to me once he took down the website.

Hello Adytt,
My advise is to simply switch away from ATS as the owner is not much caring about the security or the future of the script, some alternatives you could try are the following.

- https://myarcadeplugin.com/ (base free wordpress required, still being supported and patched, future development expected)
- https://www.avscripts.net/avarcade (no major future releases but is still being security patched and updated)
- https://thebestarcadescript.com/ (actively supported, future development expected, still being updated and patched)
- http://freearcadescript.net/ (support is active, arcade script is free to use, still being updated and patched?)

You could also just do something completely custom and have it secure from the top down.

I hope these alternatives serve you well dude as for working on improving ATS, I wouldn't recommend it since it already has exploits and security flaws which are out there in the public eye.

Regards,
Antz
