    I'm just glad we are only losing three days of stuff instead of three months like before.

    Well, it seems that several other sites were affected as well. It wasn't an isolated incident. These Script kiddies usually find some vulnerability on a server, which allows them to run a script that modifies index files. It's a common practice.

    Jeff - isn't this the second time the site has a similar problem? Did it happen with the same web host?

    This was undoubtedly a result of Kerry Collins fans wanting to erase criticism of their boy on this board!

    I know of a few other sites that were hacked during this time frame... including mine. They indeed altered the index file to only say "Hacked by Bela" with a Turkey GIF(the country, not the bird) and kindly left a link to their site (Which is in a form of Turkish... or whatever language they speak in Turkey). They also screwed with my database, so now I must hunt for the problem and most likely clear at least that part of my DB. These idiots just go around defacing stuff for the fun of it. Most are probably pot-heads with nothing else better to do. Freakin' makes me MAD! :grrr:

    Well I'm just glad it wasn't hacked as badly unlike one of my favourite sites, which lost everything and had to start from scratch all over again, happened quite recently actually.

    This is the first time I've been able to get on the site.

    I've never heard of the other Titan MB's being hacked, but gotitans has been more than once. Coincidence?
