Forums might have been hacked.


Recommended Posts

Trying to go to the main forum site (ie. the white button up above) gets me redirected to a hacker splash. Team R00t apparently, with sadly unimaginative politics.

Don't know if there are any other effects, and the rest of the forums are accessible through different avenues of approach, thus how I'm posting this.

Amateurs are depressing.

If no-one else if affected then I'll have more to look into personally, heh.

Edit: Yeah, seems to be tied to the top page of the forum itself. Any further down the tree seems unaffected.

No problems with this Bzzz..Fzzzt.WE ARE THE BIORGS DELIVER US YOUR ALMOND SLICES AND LIVE!..Bzzzz...Fzzzzt... post at all.

Because nothing is going to help solve the geopolitical issues of the middle east more than hacking into the Xenonauts site.

Then again, there's the quote from [insert adjective depending on your political persuasion] Henry Kissinger...

"Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence.

It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government."

- Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France,

Yeah. Just an out-of-date version of vBulletin at our end and a simple script to use an exploit to change the forum style to something lame about their cause at their end. Other high-profile targets include a website about guinea pig cages. It's fixed now anyway.
