    Chicago file server hack issue

    posted by Dark0ne Site News
    Hi folks,

    Thought I'd let you know that the Chicago file server has been hacked today. I believe the hacker was attempting to use the server as part of his Denial of Service attacks on a univeristy, and this was not a pointed attack against the site or community in general.

    How the person gained access is unknown and under investigation. The server is simply used as a file mirror for all the files at TESNexus. As far as I know all the files have been lost, but the server is only a mirror, so the files can be retrieved from one of the two other mirrors available for the files. The result is that you may need to wait for a couple of minutes for the chicago server to retrieve the file from a mirror before you download from the server. If you receive much better transfer times on the Chicago server than on the Texas server then please just be patient.

    Your personal security should not have been affected by all this.
