All joking aside, this is a very serious issue.

The individual responsible has a tendency to change the email address associated with the account such that any attempts by the legitimate owner to request a new password will be in vain. Consequently, accounts that have been compromised will have their passwords and email addresses totally reset. The legitimate owners of any such account will have to contact us directly to have their email address restored. After which, they will be able to request a new password via the regular mechanism.

We are still investigating the possibility that this site was compromised directly though I so far nothing untoward has been spotted.

My EAB account is gone, so I have changed them all so far.
I must point out that EAB's VB version is pretty out dated, so maybe it started their.

I was on Amiga.org then went to write an email then pressed the back button and got this:





Internal Server Error

 The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
 Please contact the server administrator,  webmaster@amiga.org and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
 More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
 Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
  Apache mod_qos/9.69 mod_fcgid/2.3.6 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1  mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 Server at www.amiga.org Port 80
Wanna try a wonderfull strategy game with lots of handdrawn anims,
Magic Spells and Monsters, Incredible playability and lastability,
English speech, etc. Total Chaos AGA

That could be down to load. I've just been recursively checksumming all the files on the site against their last known state. It's an expensive operation.

Maybe it was an inside job! Cue the melodramatic music and unusual zoom-in effects! :lol:

No I don't think so, seeing my EAB account is hacked and not here and also not on Amibay, I guess it started their.

Yep, AmiNeo is also hacked, he can't get in either, post count is also on n/a, just like me.

Thank you Karlos.
Done.

Who is trying to hack Amiga sites anyway? Atari ST users?


No, unfortunately this is most likely one of our own homegrown nutcases.

You might want to turn on your log functions, although it gives quite a load, this would show anything suspicious.

I hope a.org doesn't store the password hashes unsalted? Reasonably salted hashes are next to impossible to crack (reverse).

We're using a salted hashing algorithm for passwords.

VB doesn't anyway, they are salted MD5, unless your not up to date with patches that have security issues.
