AVSIM Hacked

Postby Nathen S » Thu May 14, 2009 6:49 pm

A press release from Tom Allensworth, Avsim’s head honcho:

“We regret to inform the flight simulation community that on Tuesday, May 12, AVSIM was hacked and effectively destroyed. The method of the hack makes recovery difficult, if not impossible, to recover from. Both servers, that is the library / email and web site / forum servers were attacked. AVSIM is totally offline at this time and we expect to be so for some time to come. We are not able to predict when we will be back online, if we can come back at all. We will post more news as we are able to in the coming days and weeks.”

Not really hacked, it was by someone they had hired to make improvements.

Pretty poor act!
Cheers

The Avsim file library is now back up and running, not at full speed yet but it's good to have it back.

Half the files are still missing, so its no good to use. I rather use www.flightsim.com
