Hello.

Apparently our web host was compromised early Sunday morning and a majority of our sites were effected by this. No personal information was at risk, someone just decided to replace every single index.php file across thousands of sites, and we were unfortunately on that list.

I'm working on restoring everything back to the most previous backed up version, so some pages might be down during this process.

For now the forums here, devblog, and almost all of the main game pages are back up. Thanks for your patience and enjoy the rest of your weekends!

Thanks for the quick response Emil. I'll never understand why morons like these guys see the need to do this sort of thing.

I'm sorry to see they got the Castlepedia too. Hopefully you'll be able to restore it pretty quickly as well!

Thanks Emil! It was crazy, all of the pages on the website was gone, and whenever I was on the forum, the page would start moving around and then turn into something called "Hacked by Tiger-M@te". Good thing that the problem was solved quickly, and no pesonally information was lost.

The hacker made the local Fox news. They even showed the same page I saw when I tried to visit the site this morning. Apparently one of the affected sites was the town hall over here. Crazy stuff, man.

I'm glad it wasn't a direct attack on TBF.

You guys at The Behemoth really deserve kudos. I will never understand why some hacker would do things like this...it hurts so many people. What a sick person. :?

The Behemoth and a buttload of other websites got hacked.
Not exactly sure by who.
