Re: kasuto.net

O_o Seems they were cracked...

Eshies... I'm not very proficient in Spanish(Looks like Spanish, at least). :| Someone needs to translate:

"A Mesma Causa que a uns leva a passar fome, provoca em outros o estimulo para trabalhar com mais afinco. Quem desejar viver, prepara-se para o combate, e quem nao estiver disposto a isso, neste mundo de lutas eternas, nao merece a vida"

*Hopes there's not Spanish cussing in there so that I've messed up* <_<;

*Thinks I should move this to Websites and Advertising... blah*

Re: kasuto.net

You can still get to the main site through here: http://www.kasuto.net/index.php

I can't see any mention as to how the "hack" took place on Kasuto's forums.... although I haven't looked terribly hard. Apparently they've been forum account hackings recently, though.

Currently it looks as if the hijackers simply took over the front page of the site.

Re: kasuto.net

Bah. Looks like they just added another page to the root directory, and edited a .htaccess file or such to make that page the index/home so as to redirect any calls to the domain to go there. Well that seems like the simplest explanation as to what's happened. O-o

What may also have been the case is they simply wrote over the index.html file. Kasuto's always had a splash screen page (index.html) with a picture of his dog, some stats, and a link to the main site (index.php).

Either way, yeah, pretty simple case. Darn those brazillian hackers, though.

And you're welcome, Chicken Dude. I wonder if Kasuto knows....

Re: kasuto.net

I didn't know Kasuto had a splash page.. yeah. That could simplify it. o.O

Edit: *cough* So far we know the quote is in Portuguese. @_@

Re: kasuto.net

Apparently it's a quote by Adolph Hitler with the same mispelling as found in an online blog. I'm looking into it further, now. The Babelfish translation is a bit garbled.

Re: kasuto.net

All that was changed was my index page, and it appears that everything else is intact. I guess I'm lucky that only one page was changed, and not the whole site. But even if my whole site were screwed up, I have the entire thing running on my computer, so I can just upload the files and directory structure in no time.

Re: kasuto.net

But this means someone you don't want to have access to your site, have access to your site.

I gues you should at least change your password, and even though you have your whole site backed up, they can do worse things than just delete your site. I always had all parts of ZU backed up on my comp at all times, but still they managed to do something worse to the server: They hacked into the root and deleted all accounts, and that left me without access to my account for days.
