It could be a bot that automatically searches out and exploits the phbb(i think) forums.

I believe honest john and the crew have checked and re-cheched ASC's vulerabilities and kept it up to current version, these forums that were killed didn't update and had the vulnerability still.

Most of these forum "hackings" are done to forums running insecure versions of phpBB with VERY widely known security holes. If, say, I decided I wanted to "hack" specarms, I probably could have done it in under a few hour's work, and that's without any prior knowledge of the workings of these security holes.

Sometimes I think I'm really nerdy for being into airsoft...my wife confirms my nerdyness constantly. THIS GUY IS A LOSER! If he trys to hack my house it's a welted up face and jail time. Crazy how many sites he has hit though...hmm maybe he wants to work on my forum?

I heard that Honest John hired ex-Czech Special Forces to guard his server.

STOP USING OLD VERSIONS OF PHPBB.

If I could make that shit flash, I would.
Or stop using phpbb entirely.

That's what it does, yeah.
In fact they often use google to find new targets - the bot searches, finds a weak site, attempts intrusion... all the kid does is press a button, in all likelihood he didn't write the code, just downloaded it from somewhere.

that makes way more sense than the pale 8 armed man, being fed by a drip with a diaper on. Still what if that's what he really is? What can we do here at ASC to help Will?

Quoted for truth.

As I said earlier, I hope he isn't keeping any of your PRIVATE CUSTOMER INFORMATION on his computers.

Note, if you DO run PHPBB, keep it up to date or assume it's compromised already. If you own a business, you're responsible for your customer data. If it gets compromised through a security hole you didn't bother to patch (yeah, I'm a real bitch about this...if you don't want to take the time to patch your servers, you shouldnt be running a server on the internet) you're responsible.

Note that in this instance, the damage is relatively low (on the surface). PHP sites are frequently hacked and used to host email phish sites, i.e. copies of legitimate banking sites to collect banking information from unsuspecting customers. If his site wound up hosting one of those, guess who gets sued by the bank?

Well you gotta admit, it would have made a nice theme for halloween and that tune is kinda catchy.

Kids these days? Peng, aside from more advanced technologies I think kids were always the same I remember hacking my principals BBS way the hell back in grade 7 Yes, private bulletin board systems hooked directly up to a sinlge telephone line using a 14.4k, 9600 or even a 2400 baud (sp?) modem were the shit back in those days.

Damn, memories flooding back, I remember the first christmas when the Atari was released 8-O
