      New Registrations can now post threads with mod approval   02/08/2017

      Just updated the permission settings so New Registrations can post threads in all forums that Members can -- but the first 3 posts/threads will still need to be approved by a Moderator before being upgraded to Member status. Member status = ability to post without going through Approval Queue, ability to change profile and edit signatures, ability to us the Private Messaging system.    As a reminder, this Approval Queue is put into place to prevent spammers from coming in and dropping harmful or offensive messages & links all over the place.    Please note that the moderators will do their best to approve as quickly as possible, but it may take a day or two during busy times. Multiple posts with the same information will be deleted and will not count towards the 3 posts, so please be patient and we'll get to your posts ASAP. Thanks!   Also, as a new member of our community, please feel free to introduce yourself to everyone in this thread:  Welcome to the Behemoth Forums! <3

Temporary Site-Wide Craziness

11 posts in this topic

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. :?

What happened? I appeared to have missed all the excitement.

The Behemoth and a buttload of other websites got hacked.

Not exactly sure by who.
