Downtime (Review) 02/12/12 - 02/14/12

Post by john.roush.89 » Tue Feb 14, 2012 6:52 pm

Some of you may have noticed that the site was down, "reported as an attack page", or chat only between 02/13/12 and early 02/14/12 depending on your timezone. This was because it is hosted on a server that was attacked during that time. By who, we don't know. Our host informed us that this was because of an older, exploitable version of wordpress running on the server, however during our downtime we also noticed issues with apache.. so we may not have the full story.
Our index pages, (index.html, index.php, etc.) were injected with a javascript which was set to download/install someone's something without asking.. Same old story haha
Either way the issues have now been resolved and we suggest scanning your computers for malware if you accessed the site between 02/12/12 and 02/13/12. And if you have any questions, post them here.
We're back :D

This was not an attack on us, as far as we know
, just some random bastard
