Here is the run down on what happened for people who didn't catch any or some of it!

Early today, around TEN-ELEVEN a.m. CST we were hacked.

~Heres how it happened.

-Cobra, the head admin here, got his account hacked. Someone used a brute forcer(a program that guesses passwords) to get his password. They de-admined all the admins, and changed cobras e-mail and password.


~Heres how it was fixed

-I found Cobras phone number and called him. I spoke with him about the situation, he was unaware of this due to his absense here. He got on and couldn't do anything because his password was changed. We talked for a good long time before finally coming up with ideas. None worked. He then told me to mess with the Website Control Panel because he was tired. He gave me the Website Control Panel head password. I fooled with it until finally finding how to change Cobras password through the website control panel. I figured it out. I changed it, got in there, and changed his e-mail and we were safe. Now here we are.


~NUMBER ONE!! WERE ARE YOU??

-If you noticed, when you type the number one in, you see a white box with a red x. This is because the hacker made it so the number one doesn't exist here. He was ingenious by doing so. This prevented us from doing a simple rollback that required us to type in a script with the number one. When we did this is didn't work because one doesn't excist. This is what it looks like.

5 4 3 2
five four three two one


~What is this annoying popup?!

-The popup is an attempt from the hacker to get cobras webhosting password. When you logon to the website control panel, you get this prompt. He thought he could fool cobra. If he would have gotten it, the forum would be gone. He could have deleted all backups and the site. Thank god he didn't get it! We will get rid of this popup asap!


~What should I do to help?

-CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD!!! Especially change it if you entered it in the box. That will the staff alot of time!
-Be Patient! Everything will be fixed in a few days!
-Follow Doomsdays rule!


~Cobra(mark) and I will be filling out a FBI report tomorrow. These hackers are busted!

-We HAVE to leave pbf in its current state, with all the forums gone... We can recover them easily, but for the FBI, we MUST leave them alone.


!!You ARE aloud to post in the lounge like you would anywere else! Just no Buy/Sell/Trade!!


P.S.

If any of you wondered why I am an admin, it is simply because of my acts today. I am now working with cobra to prevent this from every happening again. I will be handling all errors and problems in the system. I will also be helping out around here as much as I can. Sorry if this does not apeal to all of you.

Thanks guys,
Avanters
