    Arrow Tweleve Hacked

    Hello!

    Sorry for any inconvenience, I seem to have restored functionality.

    I'm looking into some upgrade options as this forum version is outdated.

    Thanks for your support,

    cthree

    Yes indeed - thank you for getting the board back onto the straight and normal pathway.

    One suggestion though -- Perhaps it would be a good idea to provide a couple of the "regulars" with your direct eMail address, as any mail routed through the Forum website suffers from a lack of access when the thing is hacked like it was a few days ago ....

    Just suggesting

    Yay cthree. Thanks for showing up to save the day. Since the forum has been closed to all new registration for months, I think you also need to ban the one new member we suddenly have on the list. He is claiming to be a Tweleve Monk, so you know this is the hacker. It is still a valid account.

    I agree with OceanArcher. Since you don't seem able to check in on Tweleve as often as you once did, it would be great if some trusted members had the ability to contact you privately in the event of a gigantic problem. I'm sure many people would be happy to volunteer to do this for you.

    Thanks CThree! Do you know if when this hacker hacked the site, how much info such as login ID/passwords/email were compromised?

    Thanks for the suggestion. While my response time was awful I was in fact alerted via personal email by a trusted member - others have my contact info as well.

    Good eye! Yes, I noticed him and have effectively "banned" him without actually banning. Hoping not to raise any eyebrows till we can patch. Thanks for the comment!

    Thank you! Login IDs were in effect compromised but are pseudo-public via forum posts etc. Emails were in effect compromised but this was a script-based defacement that was designed to change the look of the homepage - not to collect email addresses. Passwords were not compromised.

    Let me know if you guys have other questions and thanks!

    Cheers Cthree; was weirded out when I found that an extremist anonymous group took hold of the site...There's far too much info on the Torment trail for me to just forget about!
