Default Yes, we were hacked

Due to the activity of a well-known group of hackers our board was down most of yesterday. We had to use a four day old backup so any messages entered since 8/31 have been lost, sorry.

And yes, anyone that registered as a new user since 8/31 is also going to have to re-register.

Default Reregister

apparently messages weren't the only thing lost.
I had just registered on the board Sept. 1st and had to re register today.
It's a shame people feel the need to do these things.
Glad your back up and running.

No big deal reposting.
Thanks for getting it back up and running so fast. It's kind of like being in a time warp though with nothing dated newer than 8/31.

Gotta keep PHPBB updated though. 2.0.6 is available. More secure.

It proves once again Crackers have no talent and are too lazy to create something useful so they destroy other people's work.

It's ok though Steve, what comes around goes around. Why, at this very moment the Cracker's circulation is slowing and arteries are clogging up from lack of movement and too much junk food, soon they too will be hacked from within.
