I've been defaced.

As of 8:30 something this morning, I noticed to my horror, that the website hosting my forums, has been defaced.
http://yoyade.exquisition.net
See for yourself. Anyone have any idea why the website was defaced? >__>
I sincerely hope I do not have to make a MIFF what is it now? Seven?


*Edit* as an update, it has come to my attention that Wacky_Baccy, the LF member that hosts my forums on exquisition.net, had his site attacked by a webworm. NeverEverNoSanity WebWorm generation 11 to be exact. More updates to come on whether or not this is fatal to the site. So far I can reach all of my image files in my folder and such.

Do you use phpBB? There is a worm that will attack sites using this forum system. It uses Google to search for web sites using the search "viewtopic.php".

You can upadate to prevent this from happening or use this workaround. Guess it's too late for you...

actually, it WAS a phpBB site, but it must attack phpBB hosting hosters, because the entire website is down

The worm uses the viewtopic exploit and thereby changes all .htm, .php, .asp, .shtm, .jsp and .phtm files.

Viruslist.com
Kaspersky

Do you have backups of the files? I guess DBs are not attacked.

Yes so I've heard.
I'll try to see if it resolves itself or whatnot.

that's sad. Sorry to hear it, K-Jo. I've never heard of "this site has been defaced!" before.... :/

Bah, it's no harm done, It'll be fine after a bit. I found it a bit humourous, actually.

Now if Lucasforums was infected, THAT would be a big problem to fix.

How long have you been waiting to say that?

But aren't all major internet forums infested (better word) with trolls, unless you plan to ban them all, there's nothing doing.
