Instead of going on LBPC I could only see this message...

First and foremost, I must say, I know this thread is in the wrong section, but I posted here due partially to this weird glitch itself. I've been able to access LBPC fine during today, but out of the blue later today, there was this weird messup. Basically, every time I tried going to the LBPC forum page, a.k.a. lbpcentral.com/forum/forum.php, it gives me the following message.

"Hello, mister CC, it seems you ignored my email? so if you want to re-think my offer how about you give me an email? **********@gmail.com, thanks very much!"

It is as if a random message has been generated, replacing the LBPC forum page for me. I have bleeped out the e-mail on purpose, incase it was not meant to be seen by others. Now, the reason I put this in the General chat instead of the section it should be in (which I forgot the name of) is because I just got this new laptop after my other computer crashed for the third time, and I haven't went in those sections really, mostly just in the 'General stuff' Area, thus I posted here in General Chat, since I was available to get to it.

If anyone else has posted about this, my apologies for not knowing that you did, hopefully someone can help me with this.

Do we know who this was? Surely CC has an idea. He apparently has some e-mail with an offer. Clearly it was a Nigerian Prince offering a transferal of money...
At least CC's in control again. Next time don't use Stormtroopers as security. Their aim is nowhere as good as they claim and they don't check everyone's identification.

That's what I was thinking. What could someone possibly want from a LBP forum that's so important it requires this* unless it's a personal thing between them and CC and this is just a little power show of their's.

*not that they've really done much, the forum is still perfectly useable, just frustrating to navigate.

I actually talked to the hacker earlier. They're not that bad. The original e-mail was something about the hacker warning CC that the site was 'in danger'. When CC didn't respond or acknowledge the e-mail, the hacker decided to show CC just 'how much danger' the site was in. He got a reply from CC after that, sent his reply, and as of a few hours ago, the hacker was waiting for a reply.

The hacker was a member here about a year ago by the way.

Eh, not buying it. The message clearly talks about an "offer". Showing CC how easily the site can get hacked isn't exactly an offer. My guess is that these hackers were trying to sell CC a stronger site protection, CC either denied it or ignored it and they're showing him how weak the websites security is.

Well, it seems as though Anonymous has finally attacked LBPC... jk :p

But still... sorta makes you wonder what's really going down here. I mean, I had a feeling that this was going to happen, but exactly what they're asking for remains a mystery to the rest of us. If this is for something that happened on LBP, then it's pathetic. If it's something that happened here or on another LBP-related site, it's concerning. But if this is something else entirely... I have a bad feeling about this. And I don't like standing on the sidelines.

I almost feel tempted to trace the address back to the original IP and send a worm their way (either that or send them a Trojan or some other form of virus). But that'd be mean of me. We ought to wait on word from CC or even the hacker her/him/itself before initiating any action.

EDIT: Yeah, the Planetarium said that LBL and LBN also got hacked, but so far I don't see any major changes to their sites. This attack only seems to be directed at LBPC, for now.

Odd that they would mention it in a thread started a few hours ago. :p
Still, why hack any LBP fansite at all? Sounds like a kid on a powertrip to me.
Hopefully it gets sorted out soon, using the archive to navigate the forums is a bit slow for me.

I'm sorry if this comes off as rude, but this is happening here, and it's happening now. LittleBigPlanet Central, though minor, has been hacked. Its security has failed. And unless action is taken to fix this problem, consider this as only a foreshadowing of what is yet to come.

We better get some details on this soon before I decide to get law enforcement involved...

That's pretty much what it was in the case of LBL and LBN if I remember correctly. Random kid feels like only he can help and to prove his point he annoys everyone by taking down the site. Of course, after that no one even thinks of working with him...

I emailed the hacker when it first happened( rather, when I first tried getting on the site, like, 8:30 EST on the 14th) I thought it might be something do do with SOPA ( I don't know if Confused Cartman is pro) and the hacker was like "If you stop supporting SOPA, I won't hack your site!" But the person said they aren't with anonymous. The rest was weirdly worded :p

TBH it doesn't look like a "true" "hack" it was a defacement which means the servers most likely weren't directly accessed just the template editing system of vBulliten. Anyways good to see everything is up and running again!
