WiiWareWave was hacked please be patient for updates

on January 28th 2013, 12:01 am
WiiWareWave was hacked several days ago, but Rukiafan managed to give the intruder the boot. Unfortunately the hacker managed to delete Rukiafan's account and demote the staff before he was booted so we will not be able to update WiiWareWave or post articles until this issue is resolved. Thank you for your understanding.

OMG! That's why there's no admin panel after all. I just wanted to update the chatbox with a new Mario Theme!

That's why the 'outage' over the weekend. I couldn't connect to WiiWareWave for like half an hour. The odd thing is, his account wasn't deleted and I'm seeing accounts in groups that don't belong there. He's still group moderator and he still has like 3,600 posts. There has been a similar case couple of weeks ago. Can't he just restore it with a backup?

The issue has been resolved, but we need to find all of the adventure-island links and remove them to prevent this from happening again. Neutral

What? Strange? Hmm... I'll have a look at that too, then. What are Adventure-Island links?

Rukiafan you did good. Thanks for getting the site back up. Thanks to everyone who helped and wished us luck.

Are you seeking legal action against the hacker? It sounds like you have an idea who it was.

NINTENDO please get your Virtual Console on Switch sorted soon and make sure WiiU and 3DS owners can at the very least get a discount on games we already own. (Though free is better) I want Earthbound anywhere, Xenoblade X anywhere and Bayonetta anywhere! I want all my games anywhere!

Why is our profile field transparent now? It looks ugly. Neutral

@Tasuki I have no idea who it was, but I know the hacker used a backdoor from our co-owner Sneaker's website to attack us, which is why it was so easy to patch the site to prevent the hacker from continuing to use the exploit. Wink
