whatever happens

Dragonfare.com got hacked. Now, why would anyone hack that?


Hey, Kat, this is Darc (Matt of Capn'Bells wife). I'm trying to catch a hold of as many people on the server as I can. I'm afraid the whole server got hacked. We caught it about 30 minutes in and now Matt's working on getting the basics like email and the sites back up. It's going to take a bit, these guys did some damage. Sorry about the inconvenience. We'll have things running again as soon as possible. :)
I know who you are, Darc!!

I've been able to patch up my sites. The only thing that's a problem right now is the forum, which I don't have backed up in any way. However, nothing was lost that can't be replaced. I knew you guys would be on it. Thanks!
Thanks, Kat. Unfortunately, this is going to be a rough week. Matt should have sent out an email about what we're looking at. If not, he will be today. This one was really bad. They actually damaged the server's OS. Badly. It's going to take a lot to fix. I'm really sorry about this.
It's not your fault. These things happen, unfortunately. I'm just really sorry it had to happen to you and Matt.

As I said, except for my forums, I'm totally backed up and didn't lose anything, and I can wait until you guys can fix this. While I wait, I shall see what I can do about sending a curse to Turkey....
Hey, report this as a crime, huh? Especially since he left a calling card... US gov has a site talking about where to report at: http://www.usdoj.gov/criminal/cybercrime/reporting.htm

There are some state laws against this also...
We have, but with them being in Turkey we were told there wasn't much that could be done besides noting the attack and filing it away. :( It's so frustrating. We're really sorry about all this.
