Hacked?
« on: January 19, 2014, 08:17:31 pm »
Is it just me, or was I the only one who logged on this morning and got a "you have been hacked response". Could this virus gather info from any computer that logged on the MOCA website? Cant believe that there are no threads on the subject or explanation from administrators.

Hi Rock65,
               Yes the national mustang websites Template was hacked, the forum or any of the state websites were not affected.

We immediately went to a backup, no damage was done.

If you have a paid for Antivirus and a hacked website has a Trojan then you would have received a warning.

This was not the case with the Mustang site, just a young would be programmer honing his skills.

These days if you run a CMS website as we do eventually you will be hacked that's why it is important to have good backups.

Being hacked doesn't worry us but being backed up does.

You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the Duct Tape.

BTW, rock65,
                    You did not log in to see the message.

You simply visited http://mustang.org.au and that is where you saw the message.
