The main index.php has been hacked again,

hax0rs lab ownz Darwin - hax0rs@email.com cya!


is displayed again. I got in by accessing the subforums directly, through the history in my browser. Pretty scummy of the hackers to to this. TW, how much does a vBulletin license cost? In all honesty, Talk Tennis is the premier tennis board on the internet, and I'm sure it brings lots of extra business to you guys, hopefully that would justify the upgrade to a better forum software?

Looks like TW havent updated php on the web server because the haxxor says he hacked Darwin (the version of unix in Mac OS X).

A fully up-to-date php and phpbb are not a security risk, but vbulletin would be great and I'm sure we'd all welcome an upgrade to vb 3.

Actually we have. Updated last thursday.
We purchased vbulletin last week as well. We hope to have the transition complete early this week. I will make an official post when I have a more firm date this new board will launch. Good news is all the "important" data ( threads, posts, users, etc.) has migrated without issue.

Thanks!

seriously, who hacks a tennis forum???
does it mean that much to brag to tennis players that someone would want to?
i understand hacking a warez forum or something of that sort, but tennis??? get a life loser
