    first time i got the 404 saying the page is not available, i sed maaan i lost my commection again, so to make sure i opend another browser and surly enugh i saw my home page, so i sed to my self, mmm well i think there site is down for some reason. at that time i had no clue whats going on.
    so i kept hiting my refresh button, and then the site started to load ,ever opend a site and the main page is like an add. and u wait for the add. to fully come up b4 u can access the main page, well that was like that the background went black, and then it hit me i saw dos like prompt blinking then each line started with 202 or 212 number, i cant remamber but it started to say that this site got hacked by the guy name it was not simple to remamberbut i got this part for sure he was @hotmail.fr, any way so i just injoyed my first hacked show site and waited to the end at this time all what i was thinking .oh .oh i should go to my ds-x forum, and tell my friends over there so they can see it and by the time i posted there i came back to see it again it was gone lol i got my rush ...[​IMG].

    there's not much to say...

    good thing they didn't delete anything, and you gotta see the good side of things, they showed us our weakness(es)
    now it's up to us to make sure nothing of the sort ever happens again!

    about fixing it there wasn't much to do, just removing the index.html replacement page and putting the old index.php back.
    once again I was lucky enough to be there at the time it happened.

    It's propably the message board that was bugged and hacked, I dunno if you guys keep your board updated with the latest security fixes, but Invision Power Board v2.0.2 is a few versions behind (2.2.x has been out for a while).

    I was a co-admin on a forum that was hacked/defaced by a stupid phpBB bug a few months ago, it sucked.

    Just what I thought.
    But not popular enough. Wikipedia deleted the gbatemp article. I wonder what happened to it...

    Wikipedia's been really getting on my nerves lately. It seems some moderators are nominating articles for deletion for no apparent reason. It's lucky most Wikipedians have the common sense to object to it.

    Maybe since the site has to do with roms...? Well, again, props on getting it back up fast, and what a n00b hacker, editing the index.php, seems like he/she couldnt do much anyways! I say you have ninjabots patrolling the site for hackers... >.> [​IMG]

    he only edited index.php and didn't delete anything from the website propably just to avoid extreme legal sentencing just incase he gets caught, some hackers even bother to backup the original site's index files before they replace it(deface it) with their own.

    Also, if your site gets hacked but nothing valuable was lost or deleted, you're propably not going to pursue this guy for a long time if at all, so he can get away with defacing 100s of websites without any actual report filed against him.

    Some hackers dont actually delete anything because of a moral "code" or "oath" they follow, they only hack just to prove that they can, or show their power and the same time others weaknesses.
