Yeah, that's right. Stop blaming kids, when the hacker has already identified himself as an Islamic Egyptian.

Actually, that scorpion name is familiar. I do believe the same guy/guys hacked into a friends site, wallpaperinstaller.com. Ron traced them back, and found they were some kids from united arab emirates. And supposedly Ron and his programming buddies hacked back in and raised some hell of their own. At any rate, just changing the homepage to say some ignorant $hit is pretty harmless, unless your business relies upon it at all times.

I also recall Ron was using an outdated version of V-bulletin, and had neglected critical upgrades.

md, I worked with an Islamic Egyptian for many years. I can say that while he was not pro American, he had valid reasons why he was not. I can also tell you that he was not about ready to blow himself up. His kids, born and raised here, were as American as anyone. Maybe they prayed a bit more often but maybe we should consider doing the same.

Imagine Moslems out-doing Christians on prayer time. Must be sacrilege!

My minister had a Muslim as a roommate in college, the guy prayed 5 times a day. My minister said the same thing about them out praying Christians and this is where he developed his prayer habits of today. He felt that he should be praying as much as his roommate....something like how odd it was that a muslim was praying more than a Christian.

So, what kind of site is/was it, to be a target of "Islamic Egyptians?"

I see that the site's back up. Did you ever find out for sure who hacked it, or are you taking the word of the hacker, that it's the work of "Islamic Egyptians?"

Forums are easily hacked because quite often forum software is out of date. This happened to me once. Once a real hacked figures out how to hack he will release a "hack pack" and all the script kiddes who then take the "hack pack" and find out of date websites by using search engines and then initiate drop 'em.

I backup my forums at least once a month sometimes more frequent if I remember. I could swet this for automatic but I am too lazy to save myself the time :)
