I think that's how most people found out Ice, it's how I found out. I have my doubts about Danton, mainly because he generally was a decent guy who had friends on this forum.

I tried to use the wayback machine to find out what happened momments before the hack but it doesn't seem to work with forums. Only website updates.

This is pretty fucking bad. EVERY SINGLE TOPIC IS RUINED. We pretty much have to just lock everything and start over from scratch or something (unless there's a backup cache of this forums made).

I can only imagine how many pissed off people there are who had game topics or posted scripts or something.

If it's possible to change the posts of EVERY MEMBER in a short amount of time, I doubt the security of this forum. I don't know jack about MySQL or whatever language this is written in, but such an easy breach in the code makes me kind of wary.

is it really danton?
I don't think he's such a lamer...
beside, who's been flamed up the last 6 hours? (I guess from the start of the world cup...)

Our host keeps daily backups. We will restore as soon as possible. In the mean time, please go about regular business, difficult though I know it is.

My theory is a virus. A virus started by a single thread that infected the nearest to it then spread out to the whole of a board then sections and finally the whole forum was infected by this hacker virus that automatically editted all the previous posts that had been made. That's why we can still post here and not have to do out bitching on MSN.

Hey. Who it was is not a matter of idle debate. For all you know, it could have been someone other than Danton, so please keep your accusations to yourselves. Ever read Lord of the Flies? ;)

As Erk said, there will be a backup, don't worry.

I think this person needs to be somehow disabled or something or else they might attempt to do this again lol! (No seriously, what will prevent them to? I'm kinda worried...)

I don't know crap about viruses, but if that's the case I'd think restoring to a previous backup like Erk said they were trying to do would solve the problem. Hopefully they can find out who did it though, since just restoring won't stop some asshat from doing it again. :\

You said it apparently was Daton, but everyone else is saying that he didn't seem like the type to do this...

Now if the person, this hacker, was able to do this in the short amount of time he did, couldn't he have also hacked into Daton's computer?

It doesn't have to be recent. He could have thought this out, been flamed some time ago, and did it now.

Or perhaps he said it was Daton in the thoughts you'd believe he wasn't stupid enough to put his name.

Or maybe he just doesn't care and is gonna format his computer or something.

Just some suggestions and thoughts of mine.

People... please read before posting. Erk said backups are daily, so you can imply that you'd lose at most 24 hours of work.

@kip, Erk said they back up every night. So either we lose a day or about an hour if they happen to be on GMT+1 time like this forum seems to be.
