i checked regularily yesterday to make sure no one else awas set to admin, and No it was NOT a prank, i can assume you of this
idolcreations.com is down for good, hacked beyond repair at this point.
phpbbgarage.com (creator of the phpbbgarage MOD) was hacked while i was on his board looking for help on this one, (i watched helplessly as he was hacked) and his oyehr main site www.imoc.co.uk
was hacked just after that, all were phpbbgarage related. Considering the Email that was sent out was telling everyone to tell me my account was hacked, because of phpbbgarage 1.2.0 makes me very nervous right now.
all the boards that were hacked yesterday all have phpbbgarage 1.2.0 installed.. and the guy who wrote the mod was in a car accident, and not online often, and unfortunatly lived in Ireland, so i cant exactly call him up and say whast going on.
Alls i ask rigth now is if ANYONE sees anythign suspocious Email, MSN, CALL anyone who is MOderation / Admin, so we can get to the bottom of this
ALL Moderators have my Phone number incase anything needs urgent attention, (just hope im on a shift where i can get to the problem righ away...)
As a calming note to everyone, i will be backing up the Database daily until this is solved, so if its hacked again, i wil just revert back to the previous days DB (and a message will be posted) letting you know that this was the case..
As a side note here, i would just liek to say i think we are extremly LUCKY here right now, 3 out of 4 sites that were hacked (that i know of) yesterday are trashed, this one was spared it looks... the Email said,
i saw that this site is vulnerable to attacks and it looks like a nice site. please contact the admin and tell him this. it is because of the phpBB Garage v1.2.0 that is easily crackable.
which to me looks liek the hacker looked around the site, and decided to spare us?
IMOC's site had over 2500 members last time i checked there,. thast a shame to see go down. (even tho im not an MR2 Owner
