Yes. I noticed that a week or so ago.

so we're certain that encrypted data weren't compromised? since our logins to sites we contribute to are kept here too...

Thanks for all your work getting MSG up and running again Leaf. It must be a real pain having your Sunday ruined by some idiot hacker.

The animation of the hacked page was awesome!!


Never saw it, I have Flash blocked until I click accept, so people can't run scripts on my computer. Just one more protection. Also, (and more of the real reason I have the flash blocker) it keeps the annoying screens from taking over, stops floating graphics spam, and keeps a whole bunch of other animated scripts from running ads. I like it! Whatever the hacker had there, I just saw the screen and dropped out.



As for what tab62 says, I used to manage a site. It was hacked through a back door in the software code (not my computer) and replaced. I brought out the backup and restored it. A few hours later the same guy came back, took it down... I ran the backup. He wrote and email and said, since you have good backups, it's no fun fooling with you. He was moving on to people who didn't do the same. :D I mean really, he had no joy when I could just restore everything in a few minutes and the server was on my desk, so that was that!

You keep your login data here? I didn't think that was even possible. (or do you just mean the sites and usernames, which would be pretty easy to get other ways without hacking)

In any case, sorry things got hacked and good job getting it all back up relatively quickly Leaf.

My mistake, I thought we included our login for the gauge thingy, but I just checked and it is username only. In any case, great work getting msg back up so fast, cheers

I am relieved. Thought my computer was infected with virus or something.

Glad to know everything is fine now.
