On Sunday at around 2 PM EST, the forum server was compromised and the hacker was able to delete the content of the "uploads" and "downloads" folders on the forum server. The "uploads" folder is used by Easy Uploads and the "downloads" folder is used by the Downloads Database. So far our host Telefragged has restored both folders to a backup from July 23, 2007. Unfortunately, that appears to be the most recent backup of those two folders we have, due to a faulty tape backup. So we lost about 7 months of uploads. We know this really sucks and is something that shouldn't be allow to happen in the first place. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, especially to all the modders. From now on, we'll be doing daily backup of all the site files, for both the forum site and main site, to make sure we don't have this kind of data loss again in the future. What Are Affected For the Downloads Database, files uploaded after July 23, 2007 are affected. This includes file entries uploaded after July 23 2007 and file entries initially uploaded before that date but were later updated with new versions. For the Easy Uploads, files uploaded after July 23, 2007 are affected. Easy Upload Disabled Due to security problem with Easy Upload, we have disabled the feature. Please use forum attachments instead. For screenshot/images, you can also use external picture hosting sites such as ImageShack or PhotoBucket. What You Can Do To help If you are a modder, you can help us return things back to normal by checking your files in the Downloads Database and edit those files that have broken download link to re-upload the file. (NOTE: If you need to re-upload lots of files, please contact me for FTP access so you can bulk upload) For everyone else, if you notice some modders who are not active and their files are affected, you can help by contacting them and ask them to re-upload their files.
