    Yeah, I just saw that :rollno:

    I couldn't get on for the last few days, don't know what the thrill is for the J/O's that do this kind of thing :mad:

    I hope they can get back on line soon, it's a cool site and will get better as time goes on ............

    Oh my....that is bad. All the Muslim stuff, the war footage and audio. I'm thinking it is some piece of white trash trying to promote anti-Muslim feelings. What a jerk.

    THAT my friends is why forum software needs updating ALL the time. I've had that happen a couple places from not keeping up to date with patches. It just takes a couple manual MySQL fixes to get it back up. Sometimes you loose an admin user ID in the process.

    The admin has been out of town for a couple of days. He'll probably get it straightened up ASAP when he gets back.

    It would be an idea to keep the phpBB up-to-date, yes, to keep these silly things from happening. Annoying too.
  9. That's an old script kiddie hack. They just haven't updated the bbs software there in a while. Something similar happened to another forum that I was on. It was patched ages ago, I think. You have to update to get the patches though and many people don't or don't know how.

  10. Also, if anybody else here gets a nigerian 419 scam from a Yahoo address sent to your ERB screen name, let me know. I just got one today.

    I get about 20-30 419s a week to every e-mail I have. Kinda payback for spending a few months "falling" for it and wasting their time. That was fun. Now I just delete anything that comes from Princess So-And-So.

    One of these days Prince (as in "and the New Power Generation") is going to wake up to my mad Bass Skilz and offer me a spot in his band, but since his e-mail will be prince@ NPG.com I'll just delete it automatically, That's why you'll never hear about me getting famous. DANM 419'ers!!!:D

  13. +1...

    I'm Muslim, and trust me, not many Muslims know what a bass actually is. Using your own god's name in doing something wrong is just... wrong! I dont think a Muslim would do that, unless if it was one of terrorists, and I dont think a terrorist would hack a bass forum, he would more likely hack some military bass or something. It could be a Muslim, but it would more likely be someone else.

    After a bit of searching (if the hacker is using the same name), he is from turkey. He tends to attack older BBS systems, and pretty much is a one trick pony. He probably read an article on it, and searches for forums to try it on with Google. Not really a hacker (in the true sense of the word), but a malicious cracker.
