Default Recent downtime

Sorry about the recent downtime folks. Quick rundown of the past day or so:

1) Yes, the board got hacked
2) No, we will not tell you how it happened
3) Yes, we have taken steps to try to prevent a repeat
4) No, we will not tell you what we changed

For security reasons, ALL moderators should change their passwords immediately.

Any other questions?

Thanks for bringing it back up guys, and well I guess most of my questions are answered seeing as how I didn't lose my posts or my signature.

Oh good. I was hoping everything would be back to normal soon. Thanks John and Blackice, but can I ask one thing?

I don't care who it was, I'm just curious, was it a member that hacked it?

And do Nowak and I and whoever else became an updater count as moderators?

According to the "who's online" thing, you guys are "VIP" members.

It wasn't any existing member that I'm aware of.

and I guess while technically you don't count as a mod, you do have access to the front page updates and it would probably be a good idea to change your password.

Actually, it would be a good idea for all members to change their passwords just to be safe. It looks like they downloaded a copy of the database, and while it would be extremely difficult to recover passwords from it, it is possible.

Well, looks like I'll be changing a lot of passwords.

And as far as I'm concerned. It was no existing or ex-gprime member. since nobody on this board would be capable of doing so.

And I actually doubt the board itself was hacked.

Sorry is this is too much info john.

Oh thank god, even thought this place is a crumbling, cannibalistic, post-apocalyptic hell hole, I still felt a piece of me get all mushy inside at the thought of it simply dying out forever.

Some of the features have gone missing as a result of the "downtime"?

While things were offline I decided to do a little housecleaning. Most of it was not directly related to what happened.
