Who Hacked PBF? Heres the answer!

I'm sure alot of you would really like to know who did this to us. Well I got your answer right here!

As you remeber the home page said hacked by Linux_Root. This is true. He is a very popular hacker who simply uses brute forcers to get into admin accounts and take the forum over.

The only account ever made by this guys IP was Linux_Root. The only accounts accessed by him were Boss and Cobra. He never was a member here.

His motive was simply someone payed him to do it. We know this because he is for hire and destroys forums for money. Obviously whoever hired him lost some good money.

We are unaware of who payed him to do this. After the FBI report is filed and reviewed, I am sure he will fess up to who payed him to save him some fines and/or time for this.

What he did was serious offence. It's known as Internet Terrorism. Its some hardcore stuff.

He can recieve 2-5 years and a 250k dollar fine. The reason its so high is because this was a place were buisness took place. The B/S/T forum that he wiped messed him up bad. Hacking an admin account could have let him get on senior accounts, make himself have awesome feedback, and sell a 50k dollars worth of fake markers. That is the biggest reason why he is screwed.

After a WHOIS Ip search on the guy, I contacted the server he uses, and explained the situation. They gave me his personal information after giving them proof of what he did.

If/when we find out who payed him, we will let you guys know! The motive was most likely a guy who got banned and didn't like that, or a forum in compitition with PBF.

More updates to come! PBF Will be up and running within the next few days!

Again, any spamming/flaming will result in the closing of the forum until i fix it all. We don't want that, so don't let it happen!

Thanks alot guys,
Avanters

Wow man, way to move fast! So, you already have a name and everything? If he was that popular I am sure yall did the FBI and probably his provider a service by proving what he did. I cant imagine how scared the dude that hired him to do this must be now

*cough* prank

this prank has officially followed every last step of the prank I MYSELF came up with in the supporter forum.

Starts out with a controversial event that throws the forum into chaos. Next, a controversial member, who is supported by the admins, gets a new position that the rest of the forum disagrees with. If the next phases of my plan follow through there is supposed to be a divided pbf, almost like a civil war because of avantars the unwanted being admin

Angry

Greetings,
If this does turn out to be a prank - I am outta here. I joined this forum to learn anout paintball, swap ideas, and enjoy the company of people with a like hobby to my own. I have really enjoyed the forums, learned a lot, and I think have made a few friends.

If this is some hi-jinx at the users expense, it is small, stupid, and completley irresponsible. I am sure that the folks at paintball would not be supporting this forum if this type of infantile behavior is coming from those that allegedly are here to moderate it.

If it is not a prank (and I really hope it is not) then Avanters, fix it, but shut up! I am not here to kiss your ass about how good a repairman you are. I thank you for your help, but c'mon! You want respect, you treat people with respect.

Anyway that is the absolute LAST thing I have to say about this! This is a great forum, lets keep it a great forum. But if this si some sort of orchestrated prank -- you all suck!

I won't be very happy if this was a prank. I don't believe it was though. I have seen several other forums when searching to find answeres that show the same style deal. If it was noobs are cool and hey actually paid good money to do this. Then I will ship one of my guns to his town...then get in a plane pick up the gun and go kick his ass. I spend too much time here but when my time is wasted and no one gets any gay from it but some 14 year old ****tard who just wanted to flame then I think its go time. If this is prank put on by the admins or supers then I will no longer be helping out the forum. I like alot of the guys on here and even though I sold my gun i am still doing my part but I wasted alot of time figuring stuff out and getting nagged at by tons of members over email and aim and even pbnation that stuff needed to be done and even that it was my fault becuase I was 'mean to the little kids' yea ok.
well thats all from me. I don't really like the idea of a random guy having controls on the forum but its worth it for the sake of the info that has already been logged

and avanters change your post count back you will gain no respect by making up a post count and if so 400 wouldn't be enough for these punks anyway. we are fine with you having 200 posts or what ever.

Doubt this is a prank. If it is im leaving to it isn't worth my time here. Originally I thought the supporters prank was gay to because it wants going to acomplish anything. Just make things worse. If this is a prank then you see the dangerous effects of it. Hopefully if it ended up being a prank it won't happen again. Seriously doubt its a prank tho....

Thumbs up

Bubba, once we find out where he's at I'll join you at his hometown. With my aluminum bat

See you there, man! Make sure you bring a blunt object for you to use...then again, the barrel on your marker might do the job nicely after you're done blackballing him.
