....yeah, well... site has been fixed now, thanks to Peter Barton. I probably shouldn't have posted the initial message, but it was done in a moment of rage. I'm still sticking to my proposal though!


Of course, I think my outburst was justified - imagine the horror when I went to check for any updates, only to find some lowlife had hacked into the site! .....because, after all....


THERE'S ONLY 8 MORE SLEEPS!!!

Mostly these types of attack are just indiscriminate hackers, I very much doubt it was targeted at the Back 2 The Max site specifically. This happened about 18 months ago on the madmaxmovies.com site, and a bunch of other sites hosted on the same system as mine got hit too. Nothing malicious was done, it was really just a "look at me, look at what I can do!" type message by the hackers.


I expect the same has happened this time, someone has found a security hole and just run around to see how many sites they could hit. As you've seen I've fixed the site, and the issue has been raised with the guys hosting it so that they can patch the hole.

What kind of dickhead would hack a good site like this, why don't they be productive and wreck a site like, say, the Liberal Party web site?
