What did il2skins ever do to anyone except provide a valuable, free service for the community. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

I hope the person(s) responsible are caught, and their hard drives melted down.

There is a hack being sent around to all phpBB forums, if your security isn't up to date the worm gets in. Something was posted about this in my Battalions forums about 2 days ago, lucky for us we are up to date with patches etc.

Then again, if I was an emu called "Mr Ostrich", I dont think I'd be amused either.

This is such stupid behavior. As soon as the prepetrators are caught and their hard drives melted, I know where I'd put the hot liquid metal!!!! This person(s) deserve to have their computer(s) hacked and spin their hard drive up to say 100,00 RPM and let the flying pieces of platter act as shrapnel for their computers innards.
Bastages!

I've emailed Sharx about it, if I don't get a response I'll try a phone message.

WTF

Sharx has only benefitted the flightsim community and il2skins is the best resource available for our pastime bar none

Hope you get this sorted out easily, quickly, and without much expense, Steve http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Don't let the b@stards get you down

That stinks, maybe they dont realize how much sparx pays for the site and how many users of the site are affected by thier website deface.
Also look at the list of all those who helpout donating.

I can understand being irritated at the problems in the game but what did il2skins ever do to anyone or il2center when it was up.

The three things i enjoyed most about this game was missions being cache and useable in your missions cache folder which ubi tookaway for the 3rd party cheap bit low rate missions and skins packs people are selling and ubi gets a percentage of the product but we all suffer by not being able to use the mis files in cache and be able to host them anymore like we were able to in il2 sturmovik

seeing the modelers development which ubi has taken away from us with thier new NDA terms and caused the collapse of il2center.com and the netwings.org modelers forums.

Then il2skins which is another great site which will be back up I hope soon.

Go out and deface all the pay to play online games websites instead of ruining the game we all enjoy. Do some good with the skills you have

Nah, this was on the Main Site this morning, m8:

..."Hello users,

A security breach resulted in some major hacking of the site.. Same attack
that affected ubisoft earlier.

We'll try what we can to restore it.

Sorry about that

The interesting thing is that many of these vermin seem to come from the same firms that develop online security programs and systems. They have the technology (means), and the access (opportunity).

Motives? It seems to be a cyber-geek's game, a way to show off their skills and smarts. I don't think they're after ubi, or 1C, or Sharx.

But this particular thug probably knows how much information we move around, and how much chaos he can cause here. And loves it!

The exploit is in PHP below 4.3.10

The crackers launched a worm that used a piece of phpbbFORUMS code in order to use that php exploit. Basically, what it does is that it replace every file it find with the .php extansion and .html with a "defaced" message.

Was not able to recover the forums so far it's a real mess in there and i don't want to intall the same version. I still have the forums database. I'm gonna re-install them from scratch and will try to put them online after i came back from work.

ps: I've upgraded to the latest version of php. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

DONB3397 its not just some random person, they got the HL site and HL program the otherday, then they got the il2sturmovik site and now il2skins even tho they are all back up. Its someone specifically going after this game and lomac.

The evidence is pretty clear that they know about us. But are they after the sim and sites, or simply trying to mess up a system where they can do the most damage?

We'll probably never know, but if someone were into conspiracy theories they could imagine that one of the smart guys here got mad and decided to get even. Or, even that a competitor was paying someone, trying to slow down the sim's momentum.

If it's the former and this thug is reading the mail here, he's enjoying the fact that we're so p_____d off...and darn near helpless to get at him.
