    Preferredbypete.com was hacked again!

    Preferredbypete.com was hacked again on May 16 2011 at 4:34am, this one was way worst then the first one. They wiped the database, I don't know much yet, but they got the IPs of the hackers. At lest 2 individuals, I am still looking at the logs to see what they didn't.

    The site makes automatic backup off site backup every morning. So I was able to restore the site as quickly as i could. Only a few post/ thread were lost.

    I will keep you all posted if I know any more, major security changes coming asap.
