    Angry yes - we were hacked, good news and bad news

    Ok,

    So at some point early this morning it appears that someone used a vulnerability in the vbulletin software to takeover our site, exported the user database and replaced our homepage with the most poorly constructed html I've ever seen.

    The situation is this: We've upgraded to vb 4.1.3, so hopefully are now a bit more secure (fingers crossed).

    The Bad News: The database corruption resulted in a loss of about a day and a half's worth of posts, updates etc.. sorry.

    The worse news: All of the information in your forum profile and registration has been stolen by a hacking group calling themselves "pro2leet".

    Before the angry tirade, consider this: We could have said nothing, and let it be, but I feel that would not be a very responsible thing to do, and so we're taking steps to improve security, and hopefully this won't happen again.

    I'm very sorry, and I'm not a happy camper - we are taking special steps to .. find these people in the real world and dump a truckload of manure on their driveways, if you have another punishment in mind, I'm open to suggestions.

    The good news: It is very unlikely that anyone has your password, however it might be a good idea to change it if you use the same password for other things.. like facebook or your email...

    Forums are now reopen.

    Well, whoever these faggots are, they can just get on all fours, and feel our combined e-peen.


    EDIT:
    I just noticed something, the Settings option is gone from the top right options. (Using MS 6.0.2 skin)

    Well can't say they aren't persistent. I don't really see the point of this constant volleying match of back and forth control for the site. We're obviously not hurting anybody so the hacking is rather pointless. Though I doubt words would deter the people responsible so it's a bit of a moot point.

    As long as everything just keeps on flowing forward, then that's already enough.
    Where there's a will there's a way!

    so true so true. we are not hurting any one. as dysfunctional as we may be, we are still a family and a community, just trying to mind our own bees wax. LOL.

    so any progress on plugging the holes? like? also are there any other side effects that we might not know about?
