    Default Why does this site keep getting hacked?

    This site has been down for about a week because of stupid hackers. Seriously I logged on last week and it asked me to download an exe file, aka virus. Anyone else sick of this? anyone know whats going on?

    It's me. I'm a professional hacker.

    First time it's been hacked since I can remember but I did have a 1-2 year hiatus in the middle. I'm guessing some jerk is having a ball trolling around the personality type-related forums (I'm told personalitynation got hacked too?) messing them up with recent known vbulletin exploits, which I believe we are protected from now. You rarely ever get to know the people who hack you so I doubt we'll ever get a clear answer as to "why."

    The first time was due to technical difficulties. The second was due to technical difficulties delivered by a hacker. We're all sick of it, but I think it's a cure for many as well.
