Default 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.

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:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/22739...+in+Windows+XP
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.

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.

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

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

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.
