Our site was hacked; forums are down

Posted by: Dan Fabulich | Comments (9)

Our website was hacked earlier today. The attacker exploited a vulnerability in our forum software (Vanilla Forums), so we’ve temporarily disabled the forums.

EDIT: Forums are back up now!

If you’d like us to email you when our forums are back online, please subscribe to our mailing list using the “Subscribe by Email” button on the right.

We’ll also post to our Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ when our forums have returned.

We don’t know how long it will take to restore the forums. Rather than bring back the old forum software (with its gaping security flaws), we’ll probably have to choose another type of forum software and then switch to something better.

    Will u guys be releasing cheats for any of your game because being able to start with full stats would be cool

    When can we expect the new forum? Also will we still have our accounts or will we have to make a new account?

  3. So does anybody know when Choice of the Dragon II or Choice of God’s are coming out? :P

    It’s really bad. I have almost finished my game. There are more than 200.000 of words and it’s the very first part of 5 big games that I devised: one big story…

      I hope you kept them in a backuo folder or something. Would be a shame to lose this.

      Don’t worry, they’ll be back. It’s not like COG is shutting down or anything; in the worst case scenario we will have to create knew profiles for a new forum, establish new threads and try to pick up from wherever our personal messages left off. I’m just hope the forums return sooner, than later.

    Good luck in getting the forum back up. I hope this does not completely trash the games under development.
