"What Happened to the old forum?"

Here is what I finally received as contact person:

You are receiving this message because you are the designated contact for a WebApp on Sever.com.

Beginning on Tuesday, a hacker or hackers began deleting files from the Server.com website. On Wednesday evening, I made the difficult decision to temporarily shut down the Server.com website because I couldn't stop the hacker from deleting files. I believe that all of your data is intact.

On Friday morning, I moved the server to a new location and installed a new operating system. I believe this will prevent the hacker from deleting anymore files, but it did mean a severe interruption in services.

I am currently working on restoring all services. This may take a few more days.

I am terribly sorry that this happened and I appreciate your patience.

Sean Brunnock President, Server Corporation
