Looks like it don’t it:a :a


#3

Yep it was hacked…and not only did they deface it but they trashed it completely.

So now it is unlikely that my site will ever return.


#4

WTF!!! So they deleted all the BWAs etc???
Guess so as the link “You dont need all that” in your sug is not dead…

arnt they still somewhere on your server? :frowning:

Its a real shame… any ideas why it was targeted and how it was done?

#6

I dunno, its not a “high profile” website.

It will be sad to see portmac.com go, as it was one of the first BWA file sites. :sad:


#7

Yeah, and the index of games with what protection they used :sad:

#8

wonder if portmac will say any more on this…


#9

I reconixe the names of the hackers. I’m gonna ask a few friends of mine, find out what happened.


#10

I have never hard of them…

after googling for them:

oh… probably not relevant, but CDFreaks.it got hacked also

I hate hackers that wreck a website,

Leaving a note on the mainpage is ok, aslong as all the files are left alone (and the original index.htm is renamed to something like index.htm_).

Then the webmaster can set it back simply, and fix the security, but deleting all the files (especially when its a site that doesnt make any money and alot of ahrd work has gone into) is just lame.

What complete losers with no time on their hands would do that…if I was to face them i’d say “get a life”.


#12

whats with the new site portmac?


#13

I have decided to redo the site but its gonna take some time to get it all back up.


#14

Cool, very pleased you havnt given up :bigsmile: :bow:
do you have any of it saved?


#15

Most of the site is back up now, there is only the BWA files left to put back and maybe change the evil color.


#16

Cool, where did you get all the stuff back from?

only small problems:

  1. The colour :Z
  2. All the stuff has “New” next to it

Otherwise the re-building of the site is great :slight_smile:


#17

Oh dear. I used this site quite a few times. Its a shame, as these guys probably are among us now.


#18

You can see the pre-hacking version of the site on google cache:

Also an Archive Version from the wayback machine.


#19

The wayback bwa files work, so I guess portmac has put the BWA files back, for example:
