PWNeD.

No no. In all seriousness, that blows. Hope you get things straightened out soon.

Yeah, annoying, especially as security of our forums is not something we're supposed to have to worry about. A third party hosts them and maintains them server-side.

There are regular backups kept in any case, so nothing lost, but still, annoying.

Hackers, from Turkey apparently, exploiting a bug in the forum software that's since been fixed.

Heh, Turkish hackers. This is starting to sound more and more like some sort of plot for Mission Impossible 3.

Or this could be the beginnings of the end for Turkey as we know it. Perhaps these guys are really extremists, hell-bent on dark doings. Not world domination, genocide or anything so cliche.... No their mission is far, far more sinister.

To finally rename the nation of Turkey as: CHICKEN

Say it. Ankhara, Chicken. Istanbul, Chicken.... I have a feeling that this forum attack on IRE is only the beginning of this nightmare...

CHICKEN I SAY! CHICKEN! THIS IS ****ING MADNESS!

I know of at least one other MUD (not one of ours) whose forums got whacked by the same guys. Now, your theory that their plan is to rename Turkey as 'chicken' is a good one, but I think that the fact that they're attacking mud forums should tell us something. They don't just want to be called 'Chicken'. They're aiming straight for 'Mudhen.'

I blame Kay. His "WarChicken" alias was just a precursor to the Turkish Terrors that would be wraught seven years in the future.
