View Full Version : I am about to get hacked!!!!!
Ok 1st of all is there anyway I can back up my files on Futurequest for such a type of situation? I can't download it to my computer because I my modem is not fast enough to download that much within 2 days.
Second is there any sort of program or something that can save from or protect atleast sort of make the hacking less destructive?
PLEEEEEAAAASSSEEE THIS IS VERY IRGANT.
I herd it from my girl friend who's friend well let's just say get's to hear alot of stuff that goes around and he don't lie.
They are targetting all somewhat successful Hip Hop Message boards that people can post rhymes on. HHH already got hacked 4 times. 411hype.com got hacked 3 times, Ughh.com got hacked before. And many many more. We are supposed to be next.
My domain is http://www.atomicvocals.com
Is there anyway I can like do something? Anything? Alot of people offered me hacking help so I can hack them back when they hack us because I know who it is. But I refused because that is not my style I don't see any right in hacking anything because it is wrong to me to destroy other people's hard work. I mean some people spend alot of time building up their lyrics discussing, chatting, and posting rhymes I wouldn't want to destroy that no matter how much trouble I got with some stupid little administrator.
But he doesn't even know me and I don't know him neither it's just that they want to bring down all the competition so they want to hack all the boards.
I don't want all my members to loose everything they have worked for so I need some serious help here.
Wait i got an idea! Is there any way I can pay Futurequest to maybe back my files uup on a regular like every day or something?

But I refused because that is not my style ...
And it is, actually, illegal to hack sites. If you know for a fact who's doing this, have folks who've been hit contact the FBI. (I believe the offense is a federal one, so they'd be the folks to talk to: otherwise, it's local police, and they may or may not have a clue or jursidiction...)
This advice won't help you right now, but for the future, it's really, really, really important to keep your site completely backed up on YOUR side. If you always have a copy of your site, you're OK, even if you get hacked, your hosting company is consumed by Godzilla or a hurricane or whatever (heaven forbid in the FQ case, but it's better to be SURE...)

Which domain, and why are you getting hacked?
The problem is the main attraction of my web site is the message board and that is updated non-stop and I don't really have a fast online connection you know so it is impossible for me to continuously keep downloading files.

You don't have to download everything to your computer.[nbsp][nbsp]You could just use these commands given by ccTech to backup everything into a compressed file, which will be stored on the server.[nbsp][nbsp]At least this way, you still have a backup.
"However the tools are available for you to do this yourself on the server..."
$tar -cvzf usbnut.tar.gz ./

If he's actually hacked, it's entirely possible the person attacking will wipe out anything that looks remotely like a backup. So as long as it's on the server, it's not really "done". :)

I'm not sure if its possible, but if he maintains a secondary web space somewhere, could he run a cron job that looks like this?
1) Compress required site contents into .tar.gz archive
2) Open up a ftp connection from the command line to the new account, and send it over?
Of course, ftp transfers would count toward the bandwidth usage, and if its a big message board then that could really eat up your monthyl package.[nbsp][nbsp]But it would help to secure a copy off-site.
In any event, if the message board and its material are vital to ther site's survival, its definitely worth the time to download it on a regular basis.
If you're at a major university, use the lab computers to bring it down on a ZIP or JAZ disk.[nbsp][nbsp]Or use the local library computers.[nbsp][nbsp]Find a friend with DSL. Or those internet cafes.[nbsp][nbsp]Even my local airport has a high speed computer lab for passengers.[nbsp][nbsp]It'll be worth your time in the long run to find a solution.

We haven't heard anything from K-Ci.[nbsp][nbsp]I think his/her site hasn't been hacked yet.[nbsp][nbsp]If so, he/she should have backed up his site by now with 56k modem connection.
No I didn't get hacked. They took care of that guy the old fashion way. But there are still some affiliates planning to get those msbs down. Too bad.
Thank you all for the help.
Can someone run me through the backing up files on the server itself process?
And does anybody know of any protection programs against hacking I can instlall on my surver?
K-Ci = he. Thanx
