Folks,

Somehow security was exploited on the BGDF, specifically within the Protoparts catalog site. I removed the trojan, but I'm worried how it got there. Someone was able to place files within our file structure which leads me to believe that they managed to get FTP access. For that reason, I had to change the CPanel / Main FTP access password. If you need this password, e-mail it to me so I can get it to you.

The news is missing (and has been for a couple of days now), and my admin password won't let me in to look at it.

Also, I posted about this last night in this very thread, and my post is missing.

I sense trouble. Let's see if this one stays.

Yeah we were hacked. The hackers deleted all of the news articles. Bastards. I am REALLY getting tired of this, especially when I'm trying to focus my work on the wiki. Both yours and my passwords were hacked. I'm going to reset your admin password to match your user password. By the time you read this it should be done.

I noticed Site Messenger is not working right, disabled, but I cannot login as an admin. The

Darke can you reset my admin login password to something decent and email me? I tried my standard password but it does not seem to work.

Sorry I was not around to help at all, work has be way busy. I am actually headed to Denver sunday so I might not be around to fix much.

Darke good job on getting the site fixed back up! Most members did not even see the hacked mainpage.

Yeah Darke - you're a hero for getting the site up and running again, and fast! I've noticed posts disappearing and reappearing. I also just now noticed the litttle icons aren't orange by forums with new posts.

I don't know that I had any password for ftp access before, unless it was the admin password... but if you like I'll look and see if I can find anything suspicious. I'm not sure if I'd be able to identify anything if I saw it, but I'd like to start helping with this kind of thing.

Fucking hackers :/

I just noticed that there are 13 waiting links (from 0 earlier today), and that I don't have permission to see them. Not sure what's up there.

The 13 waiting links were all spam. Matthew are you still unable to login as your admin password? I changed it to match your user password.

Also to be safe, I had to go ahead and delete the other admin logins.

I'm able to log in as admin no problem. I just wasn't allowed to access reviewing the links, so it's a specific sub-permission or something.

Apparently I'm an admin, but can't do any of the admin tasks. If I click on Submissions or Waiting Links or what have you, I get this message:

You do not have administration permission for module "News"
