It looks a little, unGB. But I'm glad that it's all back up now.

Yeah.. those guys probably weren't destructive hackers, they were just out to prove it could be done... If you look at what they put it was somthing like "affix ownz you phpbb" ... they basically just wanted to show off their skillz...

Well I installed a newer version of the forum software, so this should eliminate some security issues.

Tomorrow I'll start putting back all the images and stuff and make it look GBish again :)

Forgot to mention:

As a security measure, I have enabled an option that makes it so that all new members have to have their accounts activate by the Admin before they can use the forums. Don't know if this will help, but maybe the forum upgrade will be enough.

That will probably help some.

Okay, I came here earlier, before Link (and Furday I assume). I didn't click on anything (I don't think). Could I have gotten a virus?

There was no Virus, so the only way you could have got one is via email or file.

Just to make it clear their was NO Virus!

I gathered that when my virus scan didn't spaz out. Just better to be on the safe side and look for it.

Since you didn't get an IP, Beeurd, is it possible that affix and new are the same person? Notice that new is the 100th member.

I think that "affix" and "new" are the same person.

They have both been banned anyway.

Link - No Virus, they got in threw the forums which is not a virus, its a security hole. We took off the Gender Mod which is a known security hole and updated the board version.

Was this email sent to all members? B/c I was left out and didn't get one. :(

She probably just sent it to people who's addresses she knew, there is a mass email option, but only Admins can use it...

You may have noticed that the forums are back to normal.

Let's hope it doesn't happen again.
