Seems we got hit by a phpbb-bug that allowed anyone to gain administrative rights to the forum. And since it turned out that my backup skills suck, we will have to settle for the stuff that these leet haxx0rs did not delete. This means that everything in the general discussion forum and some news posts are lost. Sorry about this.

It looks like a targeted attack because i've seen no news whatsoever of any other such happening on the Internet. If it was a worm, it would have to affect other sites as well.

I can't shake the feeling that it was related to that thread where there was a discussion about anti-Europe that eventually got the guest account unaccecible...

Then again, it's just a feeling.

I guess it could have been worse, though. They could have defaced the whole website. Anyway, let's just hope they've had their fun and won't come back again.

When I came on yesterday and saw that weird stuff was happening, or had happened (couldn't access forums, missing news, biggest hint was the message at the top of the main screen), the thought that the sight was getting hacked crossed my mind...

Bringing up the hackers IP adress makes me wonder... is there a chance they could have gotten forum member's IP's? If what Paulo said does have anything to do with it, well, I just hope everyone has up to date firewalls...

Edit: OMG! Post counts got reset! This was the work of someone who envied the postcount of (darn, I forgot who it was and without the postcounts I'll never remember) and decided to catch up by erasing them!

(Disclaimer- This was just a random thought added on in jest... But then, what was attacked besides the forums?)

Yes I remembered the name Santy worm correctly however it couldnt have been that because you'd get a defacement page.
Anyways, most people posting to this forum would have dynamic IP addresses or would eb behind firewalls and corporate/government networks of some kind.

Also note that these people didnt delete the private forum? If they ahd admin access they could have seen and deleted it yet they didnt?

EDIT: Archangel you edited whiel I posted?! now that edit is suspiscious! Afterall I did have twice the nubmer of posts as the second highest poster. And hwo coem admin post counts wherent reset, and what about the posts we have/had in the news items?

Suspicious? I sometimes wish I had some sort of hacking skills... (I'd start by finding a way to hunt down hackers :evil: ) I just edited becuase after I noticed I had 1 postcount, then looked and everyone had very few, it struck me that postcounts were lost. And I think Admin postcounts might have dropped, just they retained ones from there private forums. (Good question... how did those survive? Maybe they were backed up by someone else, or were getting automatic backups)

Edit: And look! Your already taking the lead again!

well for oen you need to get the actual difference between hacker cracker scriptkiddy into yourhead and secondly you need to realise that this si the internet and you can learn anythign you want as long as you look for it and keep at it. So you'd be hunting crackers and scriptkiddies.

And how come the posts in the news from before the backup dont count in the post counts?
