Re: We're Back
We have been resurrected.

But when they come back, do they come back wrong?

I think the hackers did something to my account. My popularity points were suppose to be 7.5 or so.

Hey, Admins. Why didn't you leave up the "Crashfrog" thread up for a while?

So with the "pay me to fix your problems" message is it now time for an extortion complaint to be made to the police?

I would say so.

Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
A morning filled with 400 billion suns
The rising of the milky way"

There are a LOT more laws being broken than simply pocket-change extortion. Unsolicited hacking is illegal and breaks a ton of laws. Despite the hackers' "offer" to resolve the security issues, they are not so-called "ethical hackers," who are typically professional computer system security experts paid to identify and resolve the weaknesses of a company's network.

Freelance ethical hackers identify the exploit, but then instead of using it, they simply notify the administrator that, "hey, there's a back door open here."

They do not alter the content of a site or shut it down, like these nuisances did.

Great, I don't live in your Country. You are welcome to call the internet police and see what they tell you. Also sit here and wait till someone else breaks in.

I don't know if anyone here has noticed this, but you can't enter this forum without a username and password anymore. In other words, lurkers can't access this site anymore.

I wasn't able to duplicate the problem while logged out or while logged in as a guest. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Never mind. I tried to access the site earlier this evening at my gym and I could not get on. Every time I clicked on a link to go to the forum, it kept asking me to input username and password. I just logged out now and was not able to replicate the same result. So, I guess problem is solved.

There is one thing I noticed, though. After I logged out, I went back into the forum and it showed me logged in again. I had to delete the evc cookies to be logged out completely. Probably nothing, though.

Added by edit.

Percy, I really hope you report this. You can't continue being your nice and forgiving self. If it were up to me, I'd stick a red hot iron poker up their asses.
