    Had it done to me before, it's a pain, but its a good chance to tighten up security/update your software. Interesting to see how quick they get it sorted...

    If we have learnt nothing over the last 30+ years its that no machine/network is fully secure. A determined and skilful hacker would likely be able to breach any security measures given enough time.

    Thanks for sharing I hadn't heard about this before. Wonder why it's taking so long for the site admins to get it back online.

    Zeerk.com Old Owner Promised Paying 1$ For every Gig posted on Zeerk in competition
    4,000+ Gigs were posted that day

    Later he said he will Pay after 30 Days after verification but he sold the site on Flippa for 60K

    Hackers are also coming up with better ways to access passwords. Getting enough security is getting harder these days that even the government is hacking our private info.
