So, as everyone knows the board has been down. It is (obviously) back up now. We had a nasty hack job done to our site, but since we paid a little extra for backups we didn't lose much. Maybe a day or so worth of stuff. While we were down I purchased some additional security stuff from GoDaddy and had them put a firewall in place. The hackers had completely torn the index of the site to nothing, but because of the backup we shouldn't have lost much.

Why in the world would those clowns want to hack a football forum? Seems like they were political types. I don't understand this stuff.

Happy to see the site back. Thanks for the work you put in.

Just in time, too. I don't know what Booze and Phil would have done tonight if they couldn't post about the uniforms.

Because people are fucking assholes. We would have lost everything again had we not signed up for the backups. He told me that the backup was from way back on Sept 10th, but we only lost part of a day's content from what I can tell. Also, with the firewall in place they shouldn't be able to touch us again. Motherfuckers.

Weird shit. When I tried to sign in I got the message/picture you guys were hacked by the V for Vendetta guy or something. I thought he was just in the movies.

You really should get a fucking life that doesn’t include lapping up your momma’s love like a puppy sucking on a tit. Fucking get a life. And a fucking job while you’re at it. Motherfuckers.

Usually they do that for sport. Can't get laid? Ah fuck it. Lemme hack a forum with less than 20 active members.

All true but their wikipedia page says they're politically motivated and have hacked CNN, foxnews and such. If their stooping to hack a small sports website I'm guessing the wikipedia is a whole lot of bullshit.

Why do I have to sign in every time I visit the site? I check remember me but that doesn’t seem to fix it also all the threads come back as not having been read. Any answers?

You can try clearing your cache. That seemed to have worked to fix LT's issue.

I bet it’s easy to hack this site. Be honest @Iamtdg.... your login password is “““password””” isn’t it.

I have emailed vBulletin about the errors we are getting and to find out why I can't access the CP. I am hoping they can just reinstall the software to fix it. I will keep everyone apprised of things as they progress.

Just as an FYI, vBulletin is going to be cleaning/restoring the site to fix some of the things we have been seeing. I don't know if the board will go down while they are working on it, so wanted to give everyone a heads up.
