    No idea. Not sure if anyone knows why? Probably just "because"...

    I don't actually know why they've done so, though I think I have an idea.

    The lame ass kid who did this probably signed up to bhw, asked stupid questions and have been sent packing. Then he decided to deface bhw because of his frustration.
    Some guys from lev3l were on the irc chan yesterday, and when I saw their conversation, it made me think about thread like this one : http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...13544-serious-people-only-respond-me-man.html

    Just my two cents :)

    For the same reason some do graffiti; most of them have no skills and shit for brains.

    Some of my most recent posts are missing, too. No big deal. I can reconstruct the most important ones. That's because I think. I can build. Not like some nerdy little alienated kid who learns some code and can only destroy with it.

    Heh.

    I would like to see one of those dudes on a desert island. Then I would like to see him try to outsmart nature from the shadows. He would be squashed like a bug in no time.

    You have to build to survive. Either that or you have to be a parasite on what others build. It's a choice.

    Kudos to BHW administration for keeping recent backups.

    Well, when I first notice that I thought that I have a virus on my PC.
    So I startet to scan my PC.
    Found nothing, Came back and still no BHW.
    Then I thought that this site might have been sold or merge with the other one.
    Started to read the site they defaced it to and realized that it is like night and day between what it is here and there.
    But if you are realy shady that website looks to be for you.
    All type of really bad things there.

    they are stupid for defacing the link in a redirect to their forum as it enabled me to join their crappy forum and place scripts that are sleepers in their forum, can't wait to see their faces when they start to take affect.

    It appears that it was this liite character.

    I can't stand "non-speak"......... I guess it is supposed to be cute and cool and all, but to me it is just a waste of time. Get to the point, right? If I were betting on who and why the hack happened, an educated guess would be "liite"..........

    His methodology of making money involves felony-type behavior. I just browsed around their main forum page and looked at the categories.........

    Stealing credit card numbers is not black hat. It is simply stupid.

    Anyway, I sure hope those scripts work nicely on their forum


    :)

    Some of my recent posts were deleted... no big deal, fortunately.

    Here's a tip for those who feel the need to repost their timeless thoughts... just type some phrases from your recent postings into Google and use its "archive" function to reclaim your original posts. Then copy & paste the text back into the correct forum...

    I've had a forum once where something similar happened. After a week or so I got to chat with one of those guys on some IRC channel (I joined their community until I knew who did it) and it turned out they were just playing around with the newest exploit script. So they Google for some specific .php file (I had phpBB running at the time), enter the URL of that site into their script, and voila... you're defaced.

    I asked him what the fun was, because it obviously wasn't the skills needed to be able to do such things. And he was laughing because all those forum dudes would have to restore and all that.

    And that was all. I was high in Google and they found me before they found a few others. As soon as I installed a new release, I was all set.

    So my lesson of the day was to keep my forum software up-to-date.
