      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

Old Linode Hack

11 posts in this topic

Today some whitehat on IRC decided to paste this on irc:

 

13:13 < n0tryan> mysqldump -hnewnova.theshore.net --all-databases -ulinode -pcfr41qa --lock-tables=false -f

13:13 < n0tryan> GUYS

13:13 < n0tryan> PLEASE DO NOT HACK LINODE

   

And that appears to be the credentials to linodes database server that for example hosts their forums. All user logins leaked again, well played linode.

The data on that hack seems to be from 2003.  Who cares?

Apparently Linode doesn't, otherwise that would never have been online in the first place for someone to snatch.

If the data was from 2003 or even 2010, the data is useless, as there was already a force password reset.
