    Did the hacker(s) manage to infiltrate your website user database and steal our passwords?

    Does ANYBODY know how to save all the forum posts that will be lost? Is there a utility that can download these? I really would hate to lose all the great info that has been collected, especially in the dd-wrt and hyperwrt fora.

    Stupid hackers.

    there is 2400 missing threads (10000) already as the WRTxxx forum has gone. i would sacrifice a few 100 to get this forum back tbh.

    passwords are md5 encrypted. in the db. they dont haave access to that.

    I will be upgrading these forums very soon to either Nuke Evolution or vBulletin. vB is safer abut costs alot more and may give complications to converting to vb from nuke for forums, userbase, etc etc.

    sorry to hear that, toxic I sent you an email with a screenshot while tha hack was in progress.

    Maybe those accounts: ceevee (this is a regular user), malfide, scnspk are not related with the hack but I cant confirm.

    hurry up, you can still recover some of the front page news from the google cache:

    www.linksysinfo.org/+linksys+linksysinfo&hl=es]Linksysinfo cached data by google[/url]

    perhaps a poll is in order of what to do in order to recover. I for one value the WRTXXX forum over the firmware forums, even DD-WRT, which is what I use. I have been completley LOST without that forum :((

    We're going to see what we can do to try to have the latest of everything. if anyone has any copies of the front page news stories cached, please let us know - send it to either myself or Toxic by email or PM.

    ughhh. Thanks for making our life hell, losers.

    So I guess my question is should I bother making any new posts now or will they be lost?

    Re: RSS Feed

    this should be fixed now, along with most of the news items on front page. now the painfullyly slow move to bring back the WRTXXX forums

    I've run several phpBB websites, and have never had problems with being hacked. As long as you update your code following updates, you shouldn't have any problems. Sure, like everything else, that takes time, but it's worth it.

    we do update regularly one main reason we have 5-10 hack attempts a day, is the linksys name, and it is linked to the USA therefore most of our hacking attempts are from anti US countries :)

    we are in the process now of updating the WRTXXX forums. we hope to have them back soon.

    A big thanks to everyone who stuck by us through this and offered their help. Thanks to some amazing work by the Nuke Evolution team we are back up and running just about full speed again.

    If over the next few days you notice some bugs or irregularities, let us know and we'll try to squash them for you!

    Don't know if it's related to the deleted data :
    When I hit 'Setup Guides --> Quickvpn Setup link in the site's homepage I get 'The topic or post you requested does not exist'

    YO toxic, do you know how to hack?

    If so you'd probably know how to tunnel through the internet and hijack encryption codes...?

    -since your the main administrator.
