    Default We wuz hacked!

    Well, that was unpleasant.

    Apparently, the Syrians (or dumbasses pretending to be Syrians . . . whatever) were able to hack this board - - and apparently a lot of other boards around the Internet.

    I think I've fixed it. For now, anyway.

    Unrelated but what the heck: Now is probably a good time to think about changing your passwords, here on the board and pretty much everywhere, especially if you're using the same password since 2003. (You know you are, aren't you? Bad user! Bad, BAD user!)

    Pardon me whist I go change a few hundred of my own passwords scattered about the Internet . . .

    I spoke too soon. Still hacker-poo scattered around the various files and directories of the board. Need to do (another) re-install. Board going down imminently.

    Was it a DDoS attack?

    Distributed denial of service attack. Basically someone sends a lot of information/requests and overloads the servers of a network and makes it unavailable.

    Edit: Ha. Long day. Read your "was it" as "what is." I'll show myself out.
