Well, I'm only going to delve into what we know to be true right now.

1) An unauthorized user logged into Acuraworld.com with the password of a supermod that was not changed from another website. Web logs show this activity beginning at approximately 21:49 EST.

2) That unauthorized user then proceeded to delete every thread in this forum at approximately 23:26 EST, according to logs.

3) I had done a backup of the database at approximately 20:00 EST, so we lost approximately 3.5 hours worth of posts and user registrations.

4) We have reported the incident to the suspect's cable modem company and requested a disconnect of the account.

5) Local authorities may be contacted if further abuse from this suspect occurs.

Facilities have been put in place to ensure that an event such as this will not lose data in the future, or to minimize the amount of data lost. We apologize for the confusion last night, and are working hard to ensure that this service remains fun and safe! Thanks for your support. :bigok:

Well, I have to admit - it IS a stretch of the word "hacker" to call what was done last night a hack. It was, at best, a script kiddie move with a stolen password. Hardly worthy of being called a "hack".

And the moron did it with a static IP on a cable modem. Dumb.

*shrug* oh well. That's why I'm in network security. Definitely not the work of a 1337 (read: leet) d00d. :D

:werd: And why would someone do this? Obviously not to prove their hax0r skills, since they had the password. :bash:

Well... the amil to the ISP will pretty much do nothing. I've gone that route before. It used to mean something until about 1995 when everyone and their brother got on this "new email thing." Remember when cdnow was a telnet site?
Anyway, I have a feeling it will escalate... these things always do. But our ennemy isn't smart... if he (or she) had half a brain he (she?) would have waited until thie place really got going and then took it down... What was he/she trying to prove anyway? That he/she (trying to keep it anon) is pissed? Consider the message received. :mad:
