My shitz got H4X0RED!

I got PWNT!, originally uploaded by bsdpunkblog.

The other night a friend of mine's, who helps me admin my virtual dedicated hosts, password was compromised. He had a version of our unrealircd.conf file on his web server. Once they obtained administrator rights I shut the dedis down. The IRC networks are both down for now, and are undergoing some work. After this happened I got a call from the guy who hacked it. Oh and the photo is from him as well. He did mention that having wildcards in the admin portion of the .conf file helped him with the compromise. All and all my nerd pride is hurt, but just keep on keeping on I suppose. The good news is, I will probably have a tutorial on PF that I will share with you guys.
