That's not too much for something so good honestly. I would pay that if I had it.

@  chief : (23 June 2019 - 12:19 PM)

Yea...Pretty excited to get it. I mean...It apparently went from LA to Kentucky for some reason...But I'm sure it will arrive after its North American tour through the postal service.

@  Wulfsbane : (19 June 2019 - 07:51 AM)

If there's another one I'll try to get it

@  Sunnyfruit : (17 June 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Woah. I'd pay even more.

@  chief : (16 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

I just spent way too much money for paper with words written on it

The E3 Nintendo Direct starts in 45 minutes

@  chief : (10 June 2019 - 07:30 PM)

Oh we have controversial topic forum..Those have always existed. And I'm for that. Just keep personal user to user shit off the forums.

 

the Controversial topic thing would fall under "debate" now I guess. I had some good times in those forums with a few members.

@  chief : (10 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

Yeah....I saw that...Blew game 6

@  Wulfsbane : (09 June 2019 - 07:35 PM)

Hey chief, we got a Game 7 on Wednesday

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 June 2019 - 09:28 AM)

Not really pressed about it, so it's no biggie to me. I'm only here for the S3 comic at this point, and maybe continuing to post mine. It's just too dead around here, and people are either too lazy, too occupied, or too afraid to share opinions as if words from feedback or response are going to hop out of the screen and attack them or something.

 

I'm an old ass man.... :(

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 June 2019 - 09:19 AM)

They generally don't last long on forums where management isn't objective about running a forum. People generally don't have the restrain/discipline to not mod it. Someone's going to catch feelings, disregarding the thousand disclaimers on the front post of the section and still hit up the admins whining about the hurty things that mean man x said to them. And the admins will feel obliged to do something about it, when ignoring it is definitely an option.

 

Again, generally speaking, people want the good of things and not the bad or the drawbacks that come with it. It's why facebook and twitter have like buttons, but no dislike button. It's why youtube demonitizes wrongspeak. It's why forums ban people for private disputes between members despite the fact that there's every tool under the sun to stop a person from bothering them available to users. It's anti hate speech is considered a thing to uphold, when hate speech is free speech, no exceptions. It's why politics are a mess. For society, the message is clear, whine until you get your way, and the lowest common denominator being as loud as they are will set the precedent for everyone else despite able bodies. For all this acting like adults thing that society pushes, society at large doesn't expect anyone to actually BE one.

@  Shadow : (09 June 2019 - 07:56 AM)

Didn't we have a controversial/rant rave section of the forum at one point

@  chief : (08 June 2019 - 07:06 AM)

Lets try to keep any personal issues out of the shoutbox. Or forums all together.

@  ShenFNWoo : (07 June 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Nothing much. Just wanted to make sure a certain person didn't get the wrong idea about how it is between us. I don't forget certain details, and things don't change no matter how much time passes unless they show some willingness to want to fix things.

@  furrykef : (07 June 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have no idea what's going on here.

Fus Has Been Hacked

I have some grave news, amigos.

On May 30th, FUS was hacked by a spammer. We still don't know for 100% certain how they got in, but I'm 99% certain they got in through a Wordpress exploit, since our Wordpress was rather out of date. The main thing they did, possibly the only thing, was put up a bunch of spam pages and maybe send out spam e-mails.

But there is also a chance they got ahold of the forum database, including the password table. The passwords are encrypted (or more accurately "hashed"), which means they cannot just read your password, but they might be able to decode some of them. If you reused your FUS password anywhere else, such as for an e-mail account, we highly recommend changing those passwords just to be safe. Also, though we think the chance is tiny, FUS may still be compromised for the moment. Now, the chance they got or will get your password is very small, but it's not impossible.

We think we have patched up the security holes, but the nature of security is one can never be too sure. So what we're going to do is torch the site and run. *ahem* I mean, we're going to make a big backup of everything, wipe the server, and then put everything back in as secure a manner as possible. That means that, within a day or two, FUS is going to be down for probably a few hours. We won't lose anything; when we're back up, everything will still be there and, we hope, it will look as though nothing had ever happened.

We deeply apologize for the inconvenience. Heck, it's a hassle for us too! But bear with us and everything should be fine within a couple of days, OK?

I have not done the full reinstall just yet. I may start the process within the next couple of hours or I might wait until tonight; it depends on when I finish preparations and how confident I am in them.

Anyway, it seems clear now that FUS is currently compromised. A malicious "indes.php" (note the "s") file was uploaded or generated a few hours ago which allows anyone who uses it to execute arbitrary PHP code. Hopefully, this was just generated by something left over from the previous hacking and isn't a sign of new hacking, in which case things should still be back to normal after I do the full reinstall.

Should I do a double check through all my files because my site is hosted through FUS or should I be safe?

I upgraded your Wordpress to 4.2.2 last night, and I haven't found anything compromised in it. Your site should be safe. You may still want to change the password of your Wordpress account, because they may still have read your database, but you might as well wait until the reinstall first 'cause FUS may still be compromised (and so you'd just have to change it again).
