Another PS2 site hacked!
Seems our Italian affiliate site www.ps2world.it was hacked today. The administrators are investigating the situation but, for security reasons, would like to move their site to a new host. If you can provide them with secure and reliable web hosting, contact C0d3x and let him know. Rest assured that despite the recent influx of lamerz in the scene, there is a strong backbone still working to keep things moving forward.
From the looks of it, it appears to be some rather lame script kiddies under the name ASC (Albania Security Clan).
More of their l33t work can be seen here
It looks like it's nothing more than a couple of 'tards with a rootkit and too much time on their hands. Doesn't *appear* to be targeted specifically towards the PS2 scene, but who knows. Rather ****ing lame.
As one person put it - web defacements are nothing more than public masturbation.
Oh, if you're so inclined, hop on their uber-l33t IRC channel at irc.gigachat.net on channel #ASC
You can tell these guys mean business cause they have an IRC channel - that's hardcore.
my site also was hacked backupscene.com like 1 week ago
C0d3x, I tried PMing u but you don't have enough space in your private message box. Clear it ;)
seems that those guys are only a bunch of lamerz... they had attacked us in a so easy way because our server was using fedora -_- in the coming days we will work hardly on our server to fix all this holes in the OS, if we'll experience again problems than we will think to move on other hosting,
thanks to all!!
some one should dare them to attack ownz... ;) that would be mildly amusing to see how Z reacts to being taken down... ;) not that I condone that sort of thing... :D
Are the attacks at server level or via security holes in the forum scripts?
server level... some kind of bugs in fedora linux
Well, for some reason , i have a feeling that my account on this very site, ps2-scene, might be compromised.
I've been a user here for at least 2 years and what i'm experiencing right now never happened in the past.
Each time i come on the forums nowadays, I must re-login EVERY single time.
Before, i remember logging twice a month or something. Which, i believe, shows that someone is trying to get into my account repeatedly.
I've changed my pass not long ago, just to be on the safe side, but i still find myself re-logging manually on every single forum visit...
Am i being paranoid?
btw: i'm sure it's not a cookie problem or anything technical since i didn't touch my browser settings for years..
i'm telling you, that's usually a cookie problem. clear your cookies and browser cache, and try again. Oh, and make sure you have "remember me" checked when you login.
