    Jan 8, 2012, 10:58 AM - RPF got hacked???? #1

    Hi got this two mails:

    If you are unable to access the RPF using "www.therpf.com", please use "www.thereplicapropforum.com" to access the site until further notice.

    We should have therpf.com back up and running in a few days, but for now, we are housing all your prop, costume and model talk at the new temporary domain.

    You may experience some slight glitches on the new domain, but we are ironing those out as quickly as possible.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.
    __________________

    *******VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE*******

    DO NOT USE -WWW.THERPF.COM or THERPF.COM

    ONLY USE -WWW.THEREPLICAPROPFORUM.COM

    There is a FAKE SITE at -www.therpf.com

    They have your password (with a little work), regardless of whether you have logged into the fake site or not. So you need to change your password... AND PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU SEE -www.thereplicapropforum.com in your address bar when you change your password.

    We do not know the extent of what they have and don't have, so just assume that they have EVERYTHING (passwords, email address, pm's, etc).

    ALSO, not everyone will see the fake site yet... it can take up to 48 hours for the DNS changes to propagate... so please just stop using/testing therpf.com at all.





    If you go to therpf.com it LOOKS like the RPF, but it is NOT. It is a fake!

    DO NOT GO TO THERPF.COM!!!

    We are in contact with the authorities and are working hard to get our domain back but until then, we have setup the site at an alternate address as mentioned in our previous email to you: http://www.thereplicapropforum.com

    Many people are of course concerned about security. Our passwords are encrypted via hash+salt but we would still strongly encourage you to change your password… but make sure when you do that you are on the correct website; http://www.thereplicapropforum.com, NOT therpf.com!

    We are really sorry for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we deal with this issue. As soon as we have more information, we will let you know.

    Sincerely,

    Art
    The RPF

    So are those mails a fake or does the RPf realy got hacked??
    As i have seen the link on the TDH to the RPF is still the old link to therpf.com.
    If the side realy got hacked you may should remove this link also.

    Thanks for reading

    The RPF did get hacked then stolen (by Russians), thankfully ART and his team are on top of things and already had a plan in place for just such an occurance.
    The RPF site is now a fake site and not under the control of ART and team.

    The site to use now, unless this has changed very recently is www.the replicapropforum.com

    Someone should change the link in the Forum index, or people will just get sent to the hacked site...

    It is compromised. The hacker as far as I've heard has locked out all the MODS and administration and taken over. He has FULL access. But Art has shown up , the site is down. Message Says it will be back up in 30 minutes. Something is definitely going down.

    It's a sad story at the RPF, but I've been impressed with how quickly the admins have been able to adapt and keep the forum going. Security is no small matter, and even the big boys can get hacked.. just ask Sony.
