Angry Dreamwave's website hacked!

http://dreamwaveprod.ca/

Okay. This is serious.
Someone out there seems to have made a habit out of hacking TF-related sites.

First was Remy. Hacked three times in only a few weeks.
Then TFormers.
Then Cosmic Rust.
Then Mechaex.
Then Rapido's G2 Archive.
Now Dreamwave.

I seriously hope you doubled the Archive's security measures...

So do I...specially since we are #2 in Google search now...

Godammit...this is not just a coincidence anymore,no matter how sceptic you might be about conspiracy theories...

Since I'm a bit schizofrenic,I'll share my theory...WE ARE BEING WATCHED...

Datum:the day after I translated the hacker writings on Mechaex my mailbox was invaded,whoever it was he was curious about the e-mails I recieved...including those that are received when you get a PM here...

Datum:I've been searching past threads (while invisible),and every freakin' time I load the who's online page some mysterious guest is reading that exactly thread!It happened several times during several days...at first I imagined some mod could be curious about what I was reading from so long a time ago-if that was the case,no prob-but now I'm inclined to believe it's very much worst than that...

We have to get to the bottom of this my friends...

Hmm, I've noticed that too...I assumed it was just spybots on this futzed up computer at work...

If he keeps doing this then that means all the TF community will have will be nothing but a lot of sites hacked every week.
It could be us next and then hasbro maybe. If the security is up it might be an idea to get some sort of backup at hand incase this guy trys anythin

They killed the whole webhost. So they didn't target Dreamwave in particular, every site has the same defacement there. And I can't find any old pages so they've probably deleted everything.

Just more l33t h4ss!d1c 4mi5h in general around, I think.

edit: Seriously, DW are as incompetent at technical stuff as they are at putting out quality products and keeping to schedules. I also doubt they have backups apart from those their webhost keeps.

edit2: Not sure if their old forum (which may now be the current one, I lose track from week to bloody week) is on the same server, but I think it may just be an index page insertion hack, as this works:

http://www.dreamwaveprod.net/Forum/index.php

An old webhost of mine was hit with one of those. My current lot seem better.

Man, that is just to weird! Astrotrain hope you don't mind if I jump on your bandwagon but, Tf sites continually being hit is too much of a coincidence. Clearly somebody is intentionally targeting th tf sites but, why? Maybe there really are tf out there trying to hide there existence! Maybe there watching me now!

But seriously, get the defenses up for this site I like it to much to see it fall. And please keep posting new info I'd like to know more.

Looks more like "hacker competition, targetting webhosts, TF sites occasionally getting into the way".
