TOPIC: We got hacked!!

We got hacked!! 15 years 9 months ago #1

To All TrueDungeon fans,

If you've tried to goto the TrueDungeon site from Friday to today, you will have noticed that it went to a different site(Mood Module--*a secret project of mine you weren't meant to see)

Here's a little explanation as of what happened. Our servers got hacked. What this means is that somebody with too much time on their hands and malicious intent decided to attack the True Dungeon site, and consequently all my servers. We got hacked last week and found the problem immediately and closed all the 'back doors' we could find. Well it turns out that the way they were getting in was through a security flaw in the True Dungeon Forum software.

To make matters worse, we got on some kind of hackers list, and over 1000hits/persecond was hacker activity trying to exploit the now defunct back door. So we had to shut down the site for a number of days to get off those lists.

I am currently upgrading the Forum Software security and we should be okay for the future.

Sorry for any inconvience this may have caused to you dedicated fans.

Thanks

Tom - THat sucks! I'm glad it was fixable, and that the site is back up.

Disregarding the problems with the site, how was everyone's Christmas?

My Christmas was nice, and I hope everyone elses was as well. I had been looking foward to posting on Christmas day and using this :smt114 emoticon, but the hackers ruined that. I had also been looking forward using my time off to post some riddle reveal, but now it might have to wait a day or two. I'll get something started in the next few days though, thanks for everyone's patience.

Tom,

I am renaming you Tom "Mr. Fixit" Gowen. Not knowing alot about computers, I would think getting the site back took some doing and it probably took time away from your own Holiday celabrations. For that, Thank you! :D


Christmas here was good, how was yours?

Whew. Now that I know that Mood Module isn't some evil hacker's project or the result of a domain name hijack, it sounds kinda interesting. When and where should we expect information on it? :D

Now if we just knew who hacked, we could ban them from all future True games. :)

Or at least hang a 5-lb hubcap-sized treasure token from his or her neck when they enter: 'Cloak of Ostrication -5 (Cursed)'

:lol:

hmmm, "I screwed everyone here for this dead weight!" :D

On the plus side, we did set a new record for users on the forum...unfortunately they were probably all hackers
