Hi.

First off, I would like to explain how the site went down, and why it won't happen again. As you probably know, the forums that were here hosted the Ocarina of Time: Beta Restoration Project. I had set up a directory on my site for members of the team doing this mod to upload files via FTP. One of the members of the project had the same password as they had at some other forums which had a password leak. When whoever attacked my site got their password, they quickly got the ftp info and uploaded malicious php code. After logging passwords for a few days, they replaced the index files of the forums and my site with "victory" messages, and the collected passwords. I brought it all down quickly, though  it was up for ~15 minutes. All FTP accounts besides my own were removed, and the site is secure once again.
The following users had their passwords exposed:

I may restore a SQL dump of the old forums as read-only.

I am sorry if this causes any inconveniences for you, and if you have lost my trust in owning a secure site, I see where you are coming from. But rest assured, the holes that let the attacker(s) get in are no longer present.

Best to make it as long and complex as you can remember. Oh yeah, and avoid the usual cliches.

God, I hate hacks. Hacks like those, I mean.

Anyway, here we go again, and with a new password...

Who wants to take bets on how long it will take for the community to collapse?
I'm guessing 2 weeks.

Changed my password entirely.

These hackers obviously have nothing better to do with their lives but be immature punks.

Based on my guess they must be extremely jealous of this sites popularity because they can't popularize their own.

Now I wonder how things will go from here.

Why is it that every Zelda hacker who gets mad takes it out on the Zelda community?
