Hacked, but back
« on: May 04, 2004, 08:47:18 PM »
Things have really sucked around here, but I do believe they are turning around.  On Saturday night, the server I'm hosted on was hacked.  All data was compromised, and deleted.

Fortunately, I had a week-old forum backup, and it seems to be working - for me at least.  If you can view this message, but not post, please send an email to me here.

Hopefully, this will be the last of the trouble for a while.  I'm trying to upload my site tonight (Tues, May 4), but probably won't be 100% back until the weekend.  However, look forward to a news update tomorrow!

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Great to see you're back online Zeus,  the site seems to be pretty functional again aside from the forum being a week old.  But a week old is better than no forum at all.

My hosting company figures that the hacker had been on the server a while.  He had gotten sloppy, and left enough information lying around that the FBI had quite a bit of info to go on.  He's got the FBI on his tail, and although they don't catch everybody, he's made a few enemies in the US Federal Government.

I really hope they catch him.  I don't know what hackers get out of destroying people's work.  I tell you what though.  I've been making more frequent backups, and FULL SITEWIDE backups as well.  I don't want to rebuild again. . . I didn't get much sleep for a few days.
