    Another board I post on had some problems. Seem as though the person that started the board got hacked and had to shut down the site. Now he's having to go through the process to start another, which is no easy task.

    As a thought, who would want to hack a BBS that is frequented by hunters and shooters?

    IShootBack, I would venture to say the same ones that stalk hunters into the woods... the ones that throw paint on FUR coats... the ones that BURN SUV's... the ones that think taking away all the guns will reduce violent crimes.

    Mind you, that just a wild quess

    ZigZag, the guy that hacked the sites was a member on Huntingnet BBS for about a yeaar or so and a member of another board I frequent for about 4-5 months. He was either actually a hunter or put on a mighty good act. He couldn't take a joke real well, and he knew computers

    Was the board part of the EZBoard network, if so and the board was Gold EZBoard should be able to restore from backup....or so their notes say so.

    It was an EZ board.

    Correct me if I'm wrong IShootBack, but they didn't loose the board, the hacker hacked into the admin's accounts and they lost all administration ability

    If that is the case, then EZBoard can resolve that. That is why you pay EZboard.

    Being a humble board member, I'm not privy to all the details. Seems as though they lost their admin abilities and reconfiguring their existing system would have been more complicated than starting fresh. I can put you in touch with them if you want the particulars. I'd hate to see this board go down due to the same terrorism and lack of protection either on ez board 's part or admin.

    If they know who he is, can they put him in the slammer?

    How did they catch him?

    It's very easy to trace someone over the net, if ISP's comply due to a breaking of a law i.e cyber crime. Unless that person is spoofing his/her IP Address

    That used to be pretty easy, and still is, with proper setup if I understand correctly. The crucial thing is whether or not it's worth the resources to track 'em down. Hope they put him away to think about it before he does some major damage.
