QBasicNews Gets Back to Form
(2/3/2003) After being hacked, the QB community joins forces to help bring back to it's original splendor.

QBasicnews gets back to business after a very hectic schedule.

Sometimes, life throws an extra challenge for the wings. For, the challenge involved building itself back after a group of hackers undid the site from the top down.

"The forum was 'hacked' (i.e. using an old security flaw in phpBB 2) and the 'hacker' was able to rearrange and move/delete the majority of posts. Although not all was lost, but at the moment the site and the database that it relies on is quite mixed up," explains webmaster Wildcard.

Members of the QB community gathered at the QBasicNews forums after the incident for investigations and to offer their support. Since then, a majority of the QB articles have been retrieved, and new headlines have been printed in place of the old ones. As a precautionary measure to make sure that a similar incident doesn't cripple, automatic back-ups are also being made of it's contents on a weekly basis.
