Attention all administrators of any message boards....

There has been a recent increase of attacks on message boards. If you want proof, bulbaedit: posting links to infected boards (if these were) is not a good plan. Please don't do it. Have already been attacked. Supposedly, most of the attacks have been on message boards with phpbb based message boards. However, thanks to Forte Wily of PMM, there have been reports of attacks on vBulliten Message boards as well.

I will try to post this on other message boards. If you are also part of other message boards, I would reccommend sending this message to them as well...

Possible More Later,

Arthas_Zero

Somebody also got Marriland the other day.

It looks like a very selective group of/single hacker after a specific group, namely VG-related stuff.

Uhhh, NO: as you should well know by now, hate speech is a violation of the PokéGym Posting Rules (http://www.pokegym.net/showthread.php?t=51), which you agreed to follow when you registered your name here..'mom :nonono:]

Thank you for the heads up. We have been aware of the possiblity of being hacked... fortunately we have taken precautions incase something does happen.

If this site is hacked, a person will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law by both us and the hosting company.

As a side note: If anyone has any technical issues such as this, please PM it to either myself or Bulbasnore instead of creating a new thread.
