Looks like we had a database issue about four hours ago - we've restored from a backup
- if anything's missing besides those four posts from the user I deleted, let me know). I'll try to put some more checks in to keep our friendly "security experts" from testing exploits on our code.

I think I was most likely online during the 'event'.

I'm assuming a password change would probably be in order?

Did you get my emails?

No passwords were compromised.

I haven't read my email yet but will get to it. ;-)

I was looking into this, but as always, CRZ beat me to the punch.

Not much point now

For future reference / posterity; what's the best way to contact you guys should we observe any out of band penetration testing in the future?

I don't have a good answer. I mean, we get hack attempts all the time, but I've coded against the really low hanging fruit so not much of it ever gets seen. The downside to this is, when somebody succeeds, they tend to succeed SPECTACULARLY. ;-)

In this instance, I caught a cryptic tweet from dunkndollaz on my phone that made my spider sense tingle and tell me I'd better check the board, so I guess you can try to tweet me or send me a DM if you're on Twitter. Even then, though, I'm not super vigilant about checking my phone, as anyone who has ever left me a voicemail will tell you.

If the worst we're going to get is four hours of downtime, I'd say you'll just have to lump it and wait for an admin to notice we're down and fix it. :)

You haven't been to CRZ.net lately. I'm the easiest guy on the Internet to stalk. ;-)

But I don't FOLLOW you, so I guess that's why your tweet didn't make it to my phone like his did.

(TweetDeck would have caught it except it wasn't running. To learn more about me...)

Ah, gotcha. I use Twitter primarily for following other people/things, and rarely ever Tweet, so don't feel like you need to add me.

Does the site just shut itself down, or was that the point of the hack?

No, but at this point anything done by hackers usually has the side effect of bringing MySQL to a screeching halt (as in, all 460,000+ articles end up belonging to the same thread or something very CPU intensive like that). We're clever, but not *that* clever.
