Site Outage: August 26, 2014

Recommended Posts

The forums got hacked, but it affected the main archive and the blogs.  I had to restore from the afternoon's backup, which means we lost roughly 6 hours of data.  Everything is back online, and looks like I need a new tactic in staving off people attacking the site.

I'm assuming that we're a soft target for novice hackers to cut their teeth on, or because we run a commerce package with our site that someone's looking for credit card information.  Of course, we don't process CCs on our site, we use PayPal for that.  It doesn't stop them from trying.  Whenever you come to the forums and see a blank page, that's when you know we've likely been hacked. :)
