myxoops.org hacked!

Unfortunately myxoops.org was hacked (along with macambrigde.com) by a vietnamese Hacker.

I am still searching for the backdoor. What he/they changed was adding two custom blocks, changed the admin password and email and deleted the primary key for the user-table.

Meanwhile I closed the site until I know how the intruder came into Xoops.

Sad day for me!

Sad News. :(

Looks like its a Hacky season.
Coz its the 4th site i heard about in this week.(the other two are not XOOPS related) But all of them was hacked by a group named Spykids.

Fastest resurrection ever! Hope so!

myxoops.org is on air again! I must confess that I was running 2.0.9.3 - SHAME ON ME! I DO NOT DESERVE TO RUN THE OFFICIAL GERMAN SUPPORT!!!

A lesson that will be learned!

3 hours for a backup is quite fast I think, you have to keep in mind that I was doing this at work! Thx to the great tools MySQL Administrator and Eclipse!

Congratulations on recovering the site! I can sympathise with the frustration you may have experienced.

The site looks great. Keep up the great work!

Best Regards,

James
