I don't know if the hacker was on a proxy, but he stupidly was on the IRC so I got his /whois

Also, his twitter account: https://twitter.com/rootinabox
 
This was what the page was showing

Two hacks by the same person in a month? Someone really needs to fix the GMC.

Don't you maintain your own website and blog? So shouldn't you have the required php and w/e web skills required if you did indeed want to hack the GMC again and sell passwords to runescape?

 

Uh you know I was joking, right?

Ran to my computer as soon as it came up on my iPad.
 
I had the chance to talk to the hacker via Skype as soon as this happened. Apparently this was just another "For fun" hack, which in a way is good news. No damage has been done as far as I can tell.
 
IRC had proper chat for 2 minutes, then all the spammers got on. There is a chat for serious people, PM for invite.

I don't know man, but I think its best if YYG hired some programmers to build its own forum.

The site might still be rooted... gotta check if it has something to do with the host as well.. or the forum it self.

Is it safe to be using the forums right now?

Or should I be worried?

 

I only ask because I couldn't get on the GMC for about ten minutes, just like the last time it was saying my browser couldn't connect to the site.

Ditto, I think we just got hacked again... Why am I on here? OH GOD!!!! IMA CHANGE MAH PW

How can we be sure that the "hack" is not still on-going?

 

I mean there was the first hackpage then we had access to the forum for a while, then it was hacked again?  

Or how does that work?

Well, talking to the hacker is so much fun.

Here is something interesting that will have my attention for a while:

"Left any hidden trails that admins will deiscover in a few months?"
"Who knows."

I am soooooo going to search the place to see if there are any.

which  can, in a technical sense, still be considered hacking. :/

True than again not true, you don't need access to anything to deface a website.. just the site it self. hence xss, and from the look of that page and link, it was defaced.

@MakerOfTheGames:

Say, why is it that when you edit your comments, your comment doesn't say "Edited by [insertnamehere], [date and time of edit]" ?

 

EDIT: Like now I've edited one spelling mistake, and underneath this it will more than likely say that this comment was edited.

Because his comment was edited by a forum administrator :P

 

So what if it's edited by an admin?

 

Even if an admin or a mod edits posts, just for the sake of truth, the edit should become public.  Otherwise it sounds like something hinky is going on behind the scenes and/or the mods can go edit comments randomly changing what was said and it seems like the original poster said it.
 

EDIT: Besides, it's actually helpful to have the little "edit" remark, as it helps with when one's skimming over comments one has read before.  That way you can skip over comments you've read before and just linger a bit over the ones that have been edited, if there is anything pertinent or new that's been added.

 

EDIT2:  And anyway, I was just wondering why MakerOfTheGames decided to go with the pic I posted instead of the one he had (in his OP).

Maybe I should remove my pic, so his OP looks incomplete (j/k)

A greenbean would probably have a small pointy tip, and more obvious pea-lumps. 

 

BUT, on topic, I've changed my password agaaaain, but this is kind of silly. And TV, don't let me tell you what to do, but I think the interviews and posts about this, while relevant to the community, just give the "hacker" the attention they're begging for.

 

 

 


Try thinking romantically  :pickle:  :woot:  if you catch the drift  ;)

It's probably no harder to hack this forum than it is any other, it's just that this forum has a community of programmers, some of whom are rather immature.

Okay, guys, this topic reads like an Off Topic spam fest and is just giving the script kiddie the attention they so desperately want. I am closing this topic now, but an official announcement will be posted in a short while, and you can continue any meaningful discussions about the issue there.
