    The link to a youtube video was in the page source but included nothing to 'make it play'.

    The video linked was this(uploaded 2 years ago):

    Weird stuff, I am especially intrigued by the Turkey locale, cuz, I mean, Turkey?! being ticked off at what we post here? Really? I'm not here much, but I do appreciate the place.

    TY Admins.

    According to Benjamin Fulford, Turkey is one of the 8 countries still under the control of the dark cabal(or is it 12? will have to double check) View it as simply another outsourced job.

    So, i was on the road today and have only now been able to deal with this.


    But first I had to get my account re-established. And then the laborious procedure of redoing all my template mods.


    I have take further actions at the router level to restrict access to the admin sections to my specific IP only now. And since I am certain they didn't penetrate there server I believe this will end their ability to do much here.


    But with things like this you have to wait for the hole to be exploited usually so you can see it and plug it up.


    Extra hard when you didn't write the forum code yourself. Cleaning up someone else's mess is always 10x as hard.


    Hopefully we won't be seeing them again.

    (ps... now I want to know who turned some turkish hackers onto my forums )

    I really hope it was random, Alex, and not some asshole. You'd have to be pissed and a bit of a geek to know how to pass this shit on, right?
