PostSubject: TFF seems to be HACKED!   Tue Oct 11, 2011 3:45 pm

Dear board members, here is Mereva.

It seems that out site has been HACKED.
Please try NOT TO LOG IN for now (that's why I write from a probe account that we created during earlier server issues and not from my own - don't want to use my admin login.)

We didn't change our host server neither did we receive any notification that we have to pay another annual fee. Please be patient, we are making everything to solve this problem.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me (my email from this account isn't working but the one from my original account surely does.)

as far as I know, forumotion is a really really hard forum to hack

4umer.net seems to be affiliated with forumotion, it's either a very well done phishing site... but I seriosuly doubt it.

The whole point would be to get an admin password as fast as possible so you can destroy a website.

HI all, just letting you know that there's an issue with a hosting server, it's getting fixed now and should be working again soon.

You wish! It is quite simple, I know at least 2 forumotion sites that were hacked. One of them 3(!) times in a row, and that during a month.

But now we have our forum back. Very Happy

So, just in case: if we ever have such a glitch again, please do not login and notify admins or mods. We don't run money, so usually forum hacks are all about collecting personal data, emails and so on. Or just to damage. unhappy Not nice but it's internet...

@Beliskner: Believe me, it isn't that hard. Some of the things you come across on the forum of forums can makes you paranoid, and extra vigilant.

@Beliskner: running a forum, I'm sure you appreciate the necessity to be pro-active, and safeguard something that you've worked hard for Smile

Thank you, again everyone, for being patient.
