Dear Bundyfans!

Today Shoe Dick informed me that the forum has been hacked.

I could restore the data and all the pages and updated to the latest version of the software (from 3.0.4 -> 3.0.8).
See attached what the forum locked like.

The hack had been done from turkey (IP: 78.175.9.215) - Thu 10 Mar, 2011 5:59 pm (GMT-1).

Thanks to Shoe Dick who informed me as soon as he found out that something was going on.

I also added a better captcha for the registration process - let's wait if this helps to get rid of these spammers.

This is how it looked here for a couple of hours:

I was scared to death that everything we'd posted all these years were gone. But then after I alerted Daniel, he came to the rescue! The site looked like this for a short amount of time:

Thank God everything is back to normal again. Let's hear it for our Admin Daniel. Hipp hipp!

Wow - you weren't kidding about being hacked!

I think a captcha is a very good idea... anything to get rid of the spammers/hackers/lurkers who will never register and steal our stuff as a 'guest' ;)

Yes but it didn't work - so I installed today a new fancy thing where a new user must select a person that was not on the show to proceed.

Is getting Marcy's stuff back a possibility at all?

Sorry, no way...
It would be possible to get some stuff back using google caching system or the waybackmachine, but that would be too much work.
