Title: Break-in and upgrade
Post by: Clinton R. Nixon on November 23, 2004, 11:58:59 AM
A big security update for phpBB (the forum we use) came out recently. With it came a slew of little hackers, hell-bent on exploiting the holes in older versions. As far as I can tell, we got hacked last night. Also as far as I can tell, we lost nothing, luckily.

I've restored from backup and upgraded the site. We run a fairly customized version of the software, so if you encounter bugs from the upgrade, please let me know. Thanks!
