Anti-Sec image hack, ohnoes.
« on: July 10, 2009, 10:51:51 PM »
Some of you might notice that the background image of the forum has changed to a nice little announcement. This is due to a little large scaled hack by the anti-sec movement. It's nothing serious, and we'll be able to restore everything back to normal soon. (No, we weren't targeted in particular.)

Info on them:

Some random thread where others are getting it too:

I'm still not too clear on it since this is the first time I looked into it. But in whichever case, it's kinda nifty that they managed to pull something like that off, heh.

I think this is only affecting ImageShack. I'm not sure if they will be able to restore the data (probably, though). Hope everyone who uses ImageShack has backups!

This was everywhere! Sheesh. This is one reason why I prefer using Photobucket. Seriously, they should stop this. They unconvincing.

Out curiosity, why isn't the background picture hosted on your own domain?

That is interesting, though. I love learning about different people's opinions. :)
This might hurt, it's not safe / But I know that I've gotta make a change / I don't care if I break,
At least I'll be feeling something

Arwym coded the forum, and I think she didn't have the permission or convenience to use our own file host directory at the time. We'll be moving it to our own this time though. c:

And yeah, what they're standing for is pretty interesting to think about.

Shoot, I was using Image Shack...

I can't read the text, what is it supposed to say?

EDIT: I can just barely make out industry will be forced to reform, something about communities and companies...

I don't feel very comfortable after reading "unmercifully eliminated..."

They aren't really fueled by pure concentrated evil or whatnot, though. And also, "no images were harmed" implies that no real damage was done.

P.S. Does this remind anyone of Death Note? :P

Someone said that all ImageShack images were replaced, yet my avatar wasn't.

P.S. Quite so :D

Hm, perhaps the forum stored the avatar. But in either case, looks like everything's restored again. :reivsmile:
