LHC!?! What happened!?

I went to look something up at the longhaircommunity.com, and apparently, it's been hacked! I got a page that said hacked by spy hack team! It says something in a different language too. I really hope it comes back soon, this is horrible!

    OMG OMG OMG. I once landed on a hacked site and shortly after my hard drive died completely and I was told it was a virus (I was religiously keeping my antivirus up to date). So do a scan on your computer! It's probably fine but scan & make backups!

    OK, I do NOT know that my hard drive killing virus came from the hacked web site. But I've always wondered.

    OH CRAP! My virus thing expired! I'm updating now! Thanks Castella!


    ETA: Okay, my anti-virus program is okay now.

    Just in case this hasn't been posted here, there is a backdoor to LHC :)
    Here are ursula's instructions for getting there:

    They seem to work only on windows XP, and the whole hacking thing seems to only affect the homepage. HTH!

    I have a link straight to the forums and it's not working so maybe the whole site has been affected. I use a Mac so I can't go through the back door. I'll just have to wait.

    Just FYI, I was preparing to do those "back-door" instructions last night and at the last moment decided to ask my husband if it was safe. He's a network security guru for the gov't. He said even if I could get to the site, if it had been hacked, there was a great possibility that your computer's securty could be breached, even with virus protection. Sooooo, as tempting as it is to go in "the back way" it may not be smart. :cry:

    Hmm...I'm going to run a scan to be sure. Thanks for the heads up! :)

    I know why it's not working for some people.

    It's because they need to go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc in their computer and not the 'other' HOSTS files.

    This is very important.

    It's NOT in the C:\I386.
    Canada rocks!

    I don't have sympathy. They should just keep it down for good. I posted there for a short time, but experienced lots of rudeness from some of the regulars - one was a mod, I think. I had not had any trouble until I posted on a political topic. Apparently they aren't very open to liberal views. I wasn't mean or snarky either. I just said that re-building the Trade Towers might not be a good idea. I'd rather see it become a memorial. I was told I had a defeatist attitude, I was bowing down to terrorists, etc., and when I replied that that wasn't what I was saying at all, I was told that I can't talk politics any more or I'd be banned. :shock: I never went back to that foolish site. I'm sorry for the posters who enjoy visiting the site, but I can't say I'm sorry for the site owners - if they got hijacked, they deserved it.

    I like TLHS (The Long Hair Site) much better anyway, but it's closing down soon. :(

    I've been a member of both sites (naturally curly and LHC) for a while. IMO this site is managed much more efficiently. LHC has a lot of glitches with it.

    Oh I'm so sorry! That sucks! I'm not a member, I can't be one because I don't have an email address that's not free, but I like going there to see instructions on how to do buns and stuff like that. I don't find a lot of bun threads here. Once my hair gets a little longer and I can make crazy buns, I make some bun threads for sure.

    Thanks! I'd like that. I want to learn how to do different types of buns once my hair gets a little longer.
