Battlefront3.net Back to Normal – Hack Free
It’s been a rough couple of days here. About 3 days ago, the site got hacked by an unknown source. At first I thought I could remove most of the malicious code placed by the culprit, but I was wrong.
Eventually, I decided to do a complete wipe of my server, with a fresh install of all the files and a complete database restore, which seems to be quite successful. The site is running great and there are not more traces of the malicious code.
The forums will be back up shortly as well. The hack attack seemed to be this certain mysql injection – eval(base64_decode).
I have taken certain precautions and measures to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.
I hope to see everyone back at the site! I’ve missed it!
