Pixelation hacked


icon
Just yesterday, I decided to take a look at the latest Ptoing and Helm collab work. What I saw, instead, was gay porn. I logged in and did a search for some posts and found nothing; the whole board had been cleared out by the hacker.

The temporary board is Ptoing's and you can find it here. You can also find a chat transcript with the hacker here.

If you have visited Pixelation yesterday, during the Gay Porn stage, please run both a Virus and a Spyware scan, since those have been leaked to visitors by Soopcan.

"never rely on outdated free software," he says, which is apparently a good thing to remember when starting a message board.

SBC. The thing is, my internet is fast, but I'm using wireless so it gets slowed down. sad

I think that would take an hour for me on my DSL line. Who's your provider?

Maybe he's running a slow internet connection. It would take my DSL hours to download that much, maybe a whole day.

Heh, I just checked one of our main apps at my work... it has a 66GB MSSQL db. Now that's a fatty. tongue

What's the deal? 200MB is a pretty big DB, but disk space and bandwidth is dirt cheap nowadays.

I talked to him and he said this:

"probably too late now, but they could have backed up the database, updated phpbb, then restored it and everything would still be there"

"actually I tried backing up the database myself, but it was over 200mbs!"

There's always some knucklehead who has to ruin it for everyone. angry
