Recent Hack - April 11, 2022

Mon Apr 18, 2022 9:48 pm

I am now recommending that you clear out your cookies. Not 100% sure if the malicious code wrote a cookie or not, or even what it might do, but I was poking into some of the malicous code - it is super obfuscated - and I saw the word "cookie" in there. Just to be on the safe side, please remove all cookies from Note that clearing out all of your cookies will require you to log back in. This is normal.

At around 6:12am on Monday April 11, 2022, the site was hacked. They did a very nice job of it, too. Malicious code was added to the main site that would replicate itself and propagate throughout everything on the server. Not fun. Honestly still not sure the source, or how to prevent it, but for now, the main site if offline (and all files "removed"), but....

The forum is alive and working!

At least it seems to be working well now. I can log-in, post and nothing is getting redirected to where it should not be. Fingers crossed!

At least hopefully, it is working and stays that way.

Neodex is next...

Then Pink Ink & Oekaki

Neodex is now up and running!

5/1/2022 - The Neodex is now showing pictures properly!

5/19/2022 - The Neodex has now been fully upgraded to the latest version, including all new versions of the extensions and skins.

5/21/2022- The Oekaki and Pink Ink are alive again. Sadly, the old Oekaki appear to be lost (unrelated to the hack)
