So, this is not a fun message to be writing.
Currently, our server has been taken offline since it has been compromised. In a most basic sense, it was hacked. Currently, we do not know much about what happened, but we do know that our server was being used as a zombie computer in a distributed DoS attack against other servers. To protect our infrastructure (and our hosting company's) we will not be bringing the server back online until we are certain everything is restored, and control is entirely ours again.
For the time being the following will be offline:
- The minecraft server network
- Websites (Clownercraft.net, logisticraft.net, islotsgame.co.uk)
Now, most people probably saw the word "hacked" and assumed a few things:
Firstly, if you're worried about data being stolen, we don't actually store much on our server. The only thing people would have access to is server logs (anything you said in chat) and server backend files. As said previously, your account information for the forums are not stored on the affected server.
For anyone who bought something from our store, please also note that none of that data is stored here either, and in fact, you're payment details are never passed onto us anyway.
We apologise for any inconvenience, and hope we can resolve this issue as soon as possible.
If you have any queries please feel free to ask them on the forum.
