Rogue coder’s attack takes F-List down
Furry roleplaying description site F-List is down after an attack from a disgruntled developer.
While the developer’s SSH access had been removed, he regained access through a backdoor. The coder gave all users administrative rights, including access to email addresses and IP logs.
In a maintenance notice, F-List founder Hexxy urged calm:
F-List will be fine. The only interest we have is in bringing the site back up, and ensuring everything is secure. A former coder uses his access to F-List’s servers to mess things up. No permanent damage has been done, but things are a little emotional right now. Don’t do anything stupid, that doesn’t help anyone, it just creates more damage.
Repairs to the site are expected to take at least two days, but a temporary copy is available.
