    It appears goTitans.com, along with a number of other sites hosted by Fuse9, have been hacked. I have no information right now on the problem except that a number of their clients are having the same problem.

    I have no idea of the damage though it appears isolated to just the index pages of the main site and forum. Members may be able to access parts of the forum.

    I'll keep everyone posted when I know more.

    I don't know much about these things but I'm guessing it is a program designed to find anything called "index" and alter it.

    Probably. Can you just FTP your index pages to fix or does it run deeper than than that.

    Apparently, as soon as someone fixes their index page, it gets hacked again.

    Here's a quick update for anyone who can even access this right now...

    The host is now in the process of restoring everything. The FBI is investigating things as well. They've given me no timetable to have goTitans.com fully restored.

    From what I understand, we'll lose all articles and posts from midnight Saturday to present which isn't nearly the loss we took last time the site was hacked. Live and learn. ;)

    I'll keep everyone posted.

    I managed to find a link in. You can't come in through the front door, that much is for sure.

    Right. If you link directly to one area of the forum or to view only the new messages, you can get in.

    Thing is, all new posts will likely be lost when the forum is restored.
