I say you post the hackers' IP.

1. It's not doing anything illegal.

2. It allows everyone to watch out for this person.

3. Well.. you pretty much guessed this one. ;)

Good luck with everything. It feels so good to see these forums again! LOL, I guess I'm an addict because it's only been 2 days.

Hi! I have a newsfeed to you and the hackers got me a few days ago too.

See Below for more info. Anyway I like your site, hope your back up soon.

Have a Good One!

Thanks to a hacker on Wednesday night the primary server for UM had to be taken down for a full reload. This process began on Thursday morning, however we are still waiting for the server provider to get it done, resulting so far in 35 hours of downtime on the main server, and it's still not back up.

In the meantime I have managed to get the forum up and running on our other remaining server. The rest of the site is still offline, we are running on only one server instead of two, and it's not an ideal set up, but the forum is back up for now. It may be a bit slower than usual due to only 50% of our server resources being available, your going to see "server busy" messages and other errors, but at least it's running.

This issue is still ongoing, I am in contact with the server provider and I hope to push them to get the main server back up a bit quicker.

My apologies for the lengthy period of downtime, UM will be back up and running in it's entirety and at full speed as soon as possible. :tu:

It's hard for me to understand why anyone would be *proud* of doing something like hacking and vandelizing people's web sites. Wow, what complete losers.

Glad to see that everything is back up and running so quickly! user posted image

The Republicans are very unhappy right now. They are likely responsible for this attack, given the timing. They are mischievous little munchkins, as more and more appear to be secret members of the liberal Lollipop Guild. :w00t:

Mabey Saruman should post his e-mail address if he can get it and we can give this hacker a piece of our minds ;)

Hey sorry about the hack attack. I thought the aliens had finally shut this place down. I'm glad it's back up, I actually missed it. I wish I knew how to hack, seems like fun.
