LHC!?! What happened!?
 
I went to look something up at the longhaircommunity.com, and apparently, it's been hacked! I got a page that said hacked by spy hack team! It says something in a different language too. I really hope it comes back soon, this is horrible!

OMG OMG OMG. I once landed on a hacked site and shortly after my hard drive died completely and I was told it was a virus (I was religiously keeping my antivirus up to date). So do a scan on your computer! It's probably fine but scan & make backups!

OK, I do NOT know that my hard drive killing virus came from the hacked web site. But I've always wondered.

OH CRAP! My virus thing expired! I'm updating now! Thanks Castella!


ETA: Okay, my anti-virus program is okay now.

Bummer I was just there the other day. I hope they come back up from this.

I tried to visit that site on my BRAND EW computer that I just got TODAY, so it'd better not have given us a virus!!

Just in case this hasn't been posted here, there is a backdoor to LHC :)
Here are ursula's instructions for getting there:

They seem to work only on windows XP, and the whole hacking thing seems to only affect the homepage. HTH!

I have a link straight to the forums and it's not working so maybe the whole site has been affected. I use a Mac so I can't go through the back door. I'll just have to wait.

miacurl 01-06-2007 04:25 AM

Nothing seems to work. Oh well.

Thank you so much!

It didn't work for me. :( Thanks anyway. Hopefully the site will be working soon.

I don't think it did. I tried to got there on a direct link a few days ago, and my computer is fine.

rymorg2 01-06-2007 07:23 AM

Nope it didn't get everything just the homepage. Some of us are back and posting. ;)

vik 01-06-2007 08:45 AM

^^ how'd you get back onto the forums? i have it bookmarked but i can't access it.

rymorg2 01-06-2007 09:32 AM

I used the backdoor instructions that are linked a few posts up from here and it worked for me....;)

Just FYI, I was preparing to do those "back-door" instructions last night and at the last moment decided to ask my husband if it was safe. He's a network security guru for the gov't. He said even if I could get to the site, if it had been hacked, there was a great possibility that your computer's securty could be breached, even with virus protection. Sooooo, as tempting as it is to go in "the back way" it may not be smart. :cry:

rymorg2 01-06-2007 09:44 AM

Hmm...I'm going to run a scan to be sure. Thanks for the heads up! :)

I know why it's not working for some people.

It's because they need to go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc in their computer and not the 'other' HOSTS files.

This is very important.

It's NOT in the C:\I386.

does anyone know when it might be back up?
