The forums were hacked over the weekend.

The hacker downloaded all our passwords and may attempt to hack members, using their IP address, which is logged by the forums.

Please DO NOT change your pw at this time, as the system has not yet been totally cleaned, but DO change any passwords for other sites that may be the same as the one you used for the MURC.

Secure your PC from intrusion. Check your firewall logs, if you have a firewall, for attempted intrusion from the suspected IP address -- anything going back to a Telekabel.Chello.nl address (starts off with 212.187.xxx.xxx). If you find anything, email Ant and GA (at admin@gagames.com).

If you lost your PW because you changed it during the intrusion, email Ant.

And go to this thread (http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/Forum9/HTML/000680.html) in The Soap Box for the story.

Thanks for the heads up Holly... I just can't grasp the demented thought patterns of some of these hacker types. They just don't seem to realize that sometimes it shows greater character to resist using an exploit when you know what it is, and to instead bring it to the admins' attention and help with the remedy to the problem.

Well, it seems that I can still post, at least there's that...
