Roamersandlurkers.com Hacks And An Apology From Rumblepup

Posted by rumblepup , in RoamersAndLurkers.com 13 February 2015 · 8,645 views

I know that the roamersandlurkers.com website has been exceptionally bad lately. Unfortunately, we've been the subject of prolonged and continuous hack, spam and dos (denial of service) attacks for the past month, literally nonstop. Kinda like a hydra, when we'd cut off one head of the attack, two more would appear. A new version of our forum software promised to eliminate this problem, but I did not want to upload it until I had it thoroughly tested. I thought I had a pretty good handle on battling the hacks, but it just got worse and worse until something had to be done.

The updates have been done and I've implemented a pretty solid security protocol on our servers. But that means nothing to the hundreds of members who got fed up with our forum. It's secure now and we'll be making it even more secure with adding SSL to our hosting, but I want to extend my heartfelt apology to all of our members for the crap they've had to put up with. It's not right and I should have been quicker to the fix.

Thank you for being a member or RoamersAndLurkers.com.

I love wrestling and this site. More attacks means more wrestling references. I'm off to learn Java....

DDOS? Sorry to read about that. Fight the good fight against Negan's blackhat extortion.

It's a pity that escaping from DDOS is quite hard. Nice job for fixing it though.

And hey, why would anyone even want to hack this site?
