sega-16.com hacked again...

by brendanraymond Wed May 25, 2011 7:30 am

Anyone noticed this happened again? hurts to see it like that.

I was going to ask about a particular game I wanted to get called Pier Solar... and got a nasty surprise again.

Thoughts? :(

http://www.the-nextlevel.com/tnl/thread ... Taken-Down

Full details in link above, but basically they share a server with the nextlevel and the guy who runs that is getting twitchy because of the recent hacks and now this phishing complaint. Looks like its going to be a long time before its back because this guy wants Melf to install wordpress and overall the sites code to make sure there are no more holes.

Well the forums are back for now which is cool. The main site is to follow although Melf wants to upgrade to wordpress and import all of the old articles so it may take a while.
