What happened to ReplacementDocs?

Postby zobraks » Fri Jan 01, 2010 7:33 pm

The best game documentation site seems to be down. :( I keep getting the dreaded 404 error.
Does anyone know what's going on?

I noticed it too when I was looking for the Chaser manual. I hope this is temporary.

When I tried to go to Replacementdocs via HotU link, this popped up:

Hopefully it's going to be fine.

Still not working. :( Is it possible that this gem of a site really went belly up?

Yeah, I saw that message (oddly enough it doesn't show when you click the site's official news link, but pops up when you try reaching ReplacementDocs via their link at HotU :huh: :lol:).

Takes them quite long to figure out what happened during the Holidays, doesn't it?

The site is up again.

Sorry the site was down for so long. Between a baby at home and pulling overtime at work I have had very little time to fix things. If you're wondering what happened, some hacker found a vulnerability in the site in December and was using it to spam people with casino ads. So, I had to go in and plug up some security holes. We should be in good shape now.

The problem was that the site was hacked:

Wow, those hackers have been busy these past few weeks. I kept removing the malware and they kept putting it back because I didn't have the time to really fix the vulnerability that allowed them to put the malware on the site in the first place.

So, I just had to sit down and really take the time to fix it right. It took most of the day, but it's done. And I'm pretty sure that will mark the end of the hacking and malware.

I gave everything a good once over to make sure the key features are still operational, but as always, if you notice anything weird, let me know. Thanks!


It's back up again.
