    No, some group decided we were a hacking target. This is the default layout, but I will probably keep it like this with just some small changes.

    They just inserted some propaganda crap into the style, but the vulnerability with vBulletin required an update to fix it, so I had to do that as well as remove their stuff, and obviously changing every password (admins, SQL, FTP, etc just incase). The forum isn't on an ISI server.

    I made several mistakes as I couldn't concentrate (I'm not very well), so I made it last 20 times longer than it should have.

    Yeah, I kinda prefer it as well after all that time on a smaller layout.

    Na, I could see in the logs exactly what they did, this was just about being annoying. NY Times and a lot of other big sites got hit by them also. No idea why we were.

    ? If you mean the spam? That's very different, and it's because I hadn't installed the spam plugin as I wanted to be done for the evening, but with the notifications I ended up getting, I came back and just installed the plugin, so it should stop/slow now.

    [sarcasm] I can totally understand why this place would be a Syrian sympathisers target for hacking :confused: [/sarcasm]

    I`ve said this already but nice work Tim.

    I also like the "new" (default) look of the place... would be good if it could be left like this for a while. Kinda reminds of RSC somehow...

    I suppose these "people" just go for any sites they can but it was a shock to find stuff connected to Syria here at ISI...

    Tim what's the hacker name please?
    Just to let you know guys. I've not read the propaganda as i've not seen it but there's 95% chance it's just a load of bollocks. The real goal of this type of wannabe hacker is to deface as many sites per day as possible and register his exploit on some websites that keep the count of lamers exploits. It happened to my community. The guy was so dumb that i still have his real life picture, a copy of his normal facebook page and "hacker" page and some personnal info he probably didn't expect anyone to find... He disapeared quickly after i sent him a message on FB.
