First time around it was a the bunch of clowns known as Wizardz Crew which appear to exploit loopholes left in that style of message board system, the owner probably never got around to securing the system past the defaults - quite a few sites have fallen victim to it. Mehmet the apparently crazy turkish hacker seems to be rather antiwar doesn't he? Probably got in using similar methods or by a hole left by MxH.
Is CF (the owner) away? The site needs a lot of work and while a really good idea and a useful knowledge base there were never really the critical number of users. I believe posters were put up in some TAC's but not much came of it.
Put it that way yeah... but it's a different circumstance. I'm talking about businesses and e-mail accounts. If your e-mail got cracked then you'd be extremely annoyed... a hacker probably could of prevented it.
Unfortunately reserverveforces.com (RFUK) is no more, the last spat of hacking proved to expensive to remedy, so on behalf of the rest of the mods and members I'd like to thank Matt (cannon-fodder) for all the hard work and cash that he put into the site ; we had a good crack , some valuable tips were passed on and hopefully we encouraged a few more people to take the plunge and join up.
As to the to-sser who hacked the site, he's of the turkish persuasion, and appears to make a habit of knocking out forums , lets hope he gets bird flu and dies a slow painful death.
I'm hoping all the former members are already signed up to arrse, and we can use this site to keep ourselves up too speed.
