    I just visited the r4ids.cn website today and apparently it has been hacked. Will this prevent updates for the R4i Gold from coming out?

    Oddly enough, they just hacked the home page. If you visit this link: http://www.r4ids.cn/news.htm everything works as it should, and the downloads are still functional.

    I think it's just a prank, because if they hacked the site, then why wouldn't they just hack the rest of the pages? Just a thought, tell me what you guys think.

    Yeah my buddy runs that site, should be back to normal by now. I do wonder how they hacked it though, might ask him later.

    Honestly, it's pointless hacking these kind of sites. They don't get anything out of it. Do they do it just to act cool?

    sometimes people do it for fun and only change the home page to warn there is a security hole in that server
