did this forum get hacked?

Post by penguinix » Mon Jul 11, 2005 11:41 pm

If you look at the top bar, next to the bzflag logo the text usually says: official forums for Bzflag.org. and under it it says: Good clean fun... sorta. Well im looking at it right now and it says "Good clean gay.... sorta". I'm no expert but im pretty sure that wasn't there before (at least the "gay" part)

There was a hostile intrusion at about 1:00 MST. We're still working on diagnosing what happened...it appears to be just a random Norwegian cracker, not a community member.

All forums are hosted on computers ;) I have yet to see a forum hosted on a turtle. :)

But in the seriousness of your question, this forum is hosted off of a computer owned by Nidhoggr, so it's all owned by BZFlag related people. It was not registered off of a site like phorumz.com .

Hmm... make database-backups if you don't do it regularly. But I guess because of the importance of the registrations (global login) you backup the database quite often.

I don't mean to boast... But It was me who spotted it right away.
I told the devs on IRC instead of making it public here.
They had changed my sig from "Me me me!" to "F*** f*** f***!" (except they didnt asterisk-out the letters...)
So whilst talking to the guys on IRC, I carried on looking around, I saw that Binary's sig was changed and that the forum header said "Good clean gay... sorta"... That was all that I saw changed and afaik that was all that was changed.
