Response to Recent Site Hack

Recommended Posts

Some of you may have noticed that our site was defaced and hacked. We are currently investigating the cause of the attack and checking all server logs along with our webhost investigating. We are putting new security measures in place such as implementing a forum firewall/CDN service powered by cloudflare.

It's important to note, no passwords or any personal information was obtained. The only thing changed was our forum names most likely by a SQL injection, and only that had iframes added to a malicious site.

Again, we are investigating and thank you for the support.

In update (if anyone cares) it turns out there was a security exploit in the forum software we use here. Everything has been patched up.

XSS?

What kind of software do you use?

Not too sure to be honest. It was a security exploit in IP.Board. They failed to mention what their latest patch fixed besides security bug fixes.
