Judging by the tagline given, this site was recently hacked.  I'm not the admin there, but I am a member, and I am hoping something can be done about this, and soon.

Here's the tagline, if it helps.  'Fatal Error 2006 - bY: owz'

Please respond ASAP.

I have the same problem with my site, mate.

Seems this guy has been "nice" enough to only crash the "index.html" file, for now. But I would really like to see something done about this.

This is why all scripting languages (except PHP) are now disabled for everyone.

I have to wonder just how many sites got hit by this script kiddy, and if there's any way to track him/her down.  It takes a sad, sad individual to go after harmless forums.  I'd like to tear the person responsible a new one...  but that's just my fists talking.  Wonder how long it'll take the authorities to track them down, if they can...

Forums were not the only sites affected. My two accounts got hit: one had almost nothing on it and the other ran WordPress (blog).

*nods to Webzone*  Sorry for leaving out the other sites, just using the one in my most recent experience for reference.  People like this make me question what little faith I had left in humanity.

There will always be people to destroy other's work. That's sad, but unfortunately true.

Interesting: the hacked accounts here were just another target set by a group of a "defacement team". A Google search reveals tons of affected websites. A page in Google's cache even provides their email addresses.

Re-upload your index.php or index.htm file from your last backup.

And even with PHP enabled this still happened... the question is is there anyone on freepgs that didn't get affected? & how did these tossers carry out the attack? Is it a vulnerability on our individual sites? or is it a freepgs issue? Where was the point of entry?

One of my accounts wasn't affected. The site itself was only HTML.

Another two "sites" (new sites i'm playing with) were not effected also and both used PHP and MYSQL on a seperate account. Not got any "Ownz" stuff here as far as i'm aware.
