Forums defaced again, back up now.
« on: January 19, 2012, 12:07:18 pm »
L4DNation.com was defaced again today by Blade, who used an FTP account which was left in for him.

It is my fault for not locking down security when I started working on L4DNation.com, but I have to say I didn't think Blade would do anything again. Last I heard he expressed interest on helping put the site back up.

We're working on locking down security, and meanwhile most of the site's files have been restored from a backup. Some of our addons are not yet working, but this will be fixed shortly.

Thanks for your patience, and we're sorry this happened.

It looks like custom avatars are going to have to be re-uploaded, but other than that most settings are intact.

Hosting provider had FTP logs showing blade's login + IP.

His alias on steam this morning was also something derogatory about bowflexin's "security."

I'm not that childish. Blade is just a misunderstood kid, that is all.
