By the looks of your profile, you are above the age of 13 so theres no chance of you understanding the reasonings behind this.

Remember people, destroying takes less effort than creating.

What a bunch of assholes. They're congratulating themselves for destroying something created by someone else for no reason. If hackers were worth a crap they'd do something worthwhile.

Not that most of that crap was worth saving, but I hope Sean has a backup....Hell, I'll send him some extra dough to get it back up. I'll IM him now.

Doubt it. I recall the God of the Board has been too busy with real-life stuff. Remember, there were other issues to be taken care of before the hacking.

On here, he's on a one-year ban, which should be over in some 80 days, judging by when his last post was. Outside the internet, he's working with the start-up of a carrier in Ghana, Ghana International Airways, IIRC, and as a result doesn't spend too much time on 'his' site either.

I administer a forum using the same software, and mine got hacked a couple of months ago. These twerps probably didn't even know what kind of forum they were hacking; most of it is done by scripts, and they just do a google search to find vulnerable boards.

Recovery after these incidents is kind of a drag. In my case, after re-installing the system and copying over the remaining data, I was able to preserve the user accounts, but not any of the forum content or even the structure of the forum itself. It was a major bummer... and mine was a comunity outreach forum for a nonprofit organization, so it was particularly galling.

I do have a tip for anyone who runs a phpBB forum, though: keep your software CURRENT. If you're running an old version, you're going to join those of us who've had to deal with this stuff. Also, the folks over at phpBB maintain their own support forums--it's not a bad idea to lurk there and be aware of new vulnerabilities as they're identified.
