Site Hacked
« on: May 18, 2009, 12:12:36 AM »
Hackensacknow was hacked on Saturday and all visitors were redirected to another site.  There were no viruses associated with this hack and no machines were infected.  This was a server-side issue. 

Thanks to Terrance for helping me resolve the breach (which took the better part of the day). We are not sure whether it will happen again we and are still checking for vulnerabilities. 

Note: While I make every effort to back-up the boards, I can't guarantee their safe-keeping indefinitely.

I'm also taking this opportunity to modify the forum template.  The appearance will change over the next few days.

Thanks for your patience.

It HAD to be Gene Hacker. He even put his name on his new site:




You just can't trust those photographers!

Good line.
Gene wouldn't have done it; but, his son in law, Al, certainly would have.
