We Might Have Been Hacked
« on: August 13, 2016, 02:07:35 AM »
It looks like our servers were compromised, so you may want to change your passwords. Although the databases were encrypted, it looks like they could have been tampered with so it's better safe than sorry.

Apologies to those who have lost accounts and posts in the process of the migration to a backup. This was completely unprecedented, but things happen. Hopefully, this won't occur again.

no viruses. DS rolled us back partly to make extra sure of that. I recommend everyone to change their passwords anyways though, for extra safety

We should be good when it comes to viruses, it looks like I rolled us back and changed all the passwords before anything was too badly wrecked!

We've had malicious script injected into old files on the mainsite before too so it's kind of odd, but also probably just a random attack. Sometimes all it takes is one little vulnerability and someone tries to take out your whole forum with a virus. D:

And honestly, from what I've seen from previous attacks on other websites.. they do it because they can. There's no malicious intent behind it or a personal reason. They have the ability to hack it, so they do. <shrugs>

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?
A big thing or a small, the winner takes it all.
