Thread: 4m.net...

  1. #1

    Default 4m.net...

    For some reason or another, I received an email from the guy that runs 4M.net tonight (a PR) notifying everyone that they have shut the site down to repair it because it was 'hacked' into. I don't know if this is true or not since I haven't been on 4M since last August (because they don't value their 'customers').


    Anyway, if I remember correctly, wasn't that bastard of a new forum supposed to be "much more secure" and prevent that sort of thing from happening? Maybe I am delusional on that, but I could swear that was one of their main reasons for going to that B'O'S of a message board format.


    Anyone been there lately that can verify that deal? I am just curious...

    I wouldn't read any email that comes from 4m.net, if what they say is true it was hacked into and set up to send out emails with a virus. Better virus scan your computer!

    Becareful opening any emails from 4m or something like that.

    I would also guess that when they come back online on the 16th that it is a new style (or perhaps back to vbulletin) of board as the old one is a POS like you said.

    4M.net site compromised, set for Re-Launch this week

    On Friday, February 9, 2007 the popular dirt late model message board community, 4M.net, was “hacked” and taken under control by an outsider. During this attack the perpetrator used the 4M server to send out malicious emails attached with a “trogan” virus. This compromised the ability for users to access the site because of the massive bandwidth that was used to send out the potentially hazardous emails.

    As of Tuesday, February 13, 2007 the site was taken down and quarantined. All of the user data was safe and was not harmed. Unfortunately, because of the potential for more attacks we have decided it in the best interest of the site and its users that we switch servers and “re-launch” 4m.net. Work is underway to process this task around the clock and should be complete by Friday, February 16, 2007. It is very possible that the site will “resolve” to the new server sooner for some users.

    4M.net, Arizona Sport Shirts, and Atomic XR, Inc. are very disappointed that the site was compromised and offer our sincere apologies to our community members. 4M.net will be back soon with increased security, a new look, and the same great racing news and discussion all members have come to expect since 1996.

    With Regards,

    4M.net

    VIRGINIA RACERS was originally started by a couple of racers with the intention of promoting and introducing Virginia dirt track racing to more racers and fans.
    Since then our guys have become more involved in their racing activities which in turn left little time to give to the site. And with racing season just about to start in our area they have decided to put all their available time in their racing. Which in turn leaves only me to gather news and information to post on the site?
    We have a lot of viewers but very few posters. If more fans were involved it could very well run itself.

    Thanks,
    Lisa Meadows
