Hispamsx.org temporarily offline due to hack

Yesterday hispamsx.org was hacked, therefor the site has closed up temporarily. It will take some time until the site goes up again, since the database has to be restored and, of course, the security and main engine have to be improved and updated. This doesn't affect the HispaMSX mailing list, which is working just fine.

F...ing hackers!! Why don´t they play around with other things more interesting, in stead of ruin someone´s else job?
Sorry for this, I hope it will be restored as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, most hackers are either script kiddies who don't know what they're doing, or part of a group wanting to show off their laming skills. Those type of hackers aren't the friendly kind.

OTOH, there are also hackers who can help to improve security by getting in in some way and reporting how such a security leak can be fixed.

I totally agree with BiFi. I have so much university work for now, so the restoration of hispamsx.org will be a bit slow (please, note that it is not just to restore the database). I'll try to get back online as soon as posible.

Hi all,

About the site hacked. If HispaMSX.org is using the PHP-NUKE content manager, please contact-me and I can send a filter to Database Layer (made by me), to avoid possible SQL injection.
