    Got one after all, "Hacked by Marokki team" is the subject. I think those went out through the email notification system for subscribed threads.

    Lou needs our support guys, he had nothing to do with what happened today.

    Thank you Lou for bringing our happy place online again!

    This was absolutely awful and I could not believe my eyes when I saw it. I hope that this gets taken care of and the authorities can do something about this.

    I just googled Marokki Team and there were several sites that were hacked. One in particular had a message from them saying "If you stop war we will stop hacking, we cry when children die."
    Very scary, it just makes me angry that some people in this country have nothing to do with the war and we still suffer from all of this.

    I totally agree with the idea of looking into sueing...

    While I doubt anyone is too worried about hackers logging on to here and posting a diatribe on how Stitch's Great Escape is the best ride at Disney World, having your PW is a big concern in another way. If you use the same PW at other sites that you on this site, you may want to change them. Especially if you got an e-mail. If, for instance, they know you use gmail now and your gmail PW is the same as your disneyworldtrivia.com PW, they can now access your e-mail.

    I'm not trying to scare anyone, but this is just some common sense advice. Especially if you got that e-mail, I would highly suggest changing any passwords that may be common to the one you use here.
    no lou said that no personal info was givin out...

    Lou, have no fear.. we know you had nothing to do with this pathetic display and poor attempt for publicity.... I hope the authorities find these punks and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law... Let's all buy Disneyworld Trivia shirts, wear thm proud and show that these morons won't stop us from viewing one of the best Disney fan sites and the ONLY site for great Disney trivia.. Lou, you have our support....

    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    As you may be aware, the home page of DisneyWorldTrivia.com was down for a few hours on Friday, September 1. The forums were temporarily closed so the software developers could resolve the issue. I am also aware that some members received inappropriate emails that appeared to come from DisneyWorldTrivia.com, and that issue has been remedied as well.

    I cannot express how absolutelu devastated I am that this has happened the members of the community. It appears as thought it was not a targeted attack, but an exploitation of a small vulnerability in the chat software we were using, and has been resolved. We are no longer using that software, and will not in the future. While I did not know about this until after it had taken place, I take personal responsibility for this and offer you my sincerest apologies. I hope that this in no way diminishes your opinion of me, the site or the community. Again, I am incredibly sorry for what I saw was on the home page, and sent to you via email. Please note that NO personal information, usernames, passwords, email addresses or any other information has been compromised, leaked, accessed or in any way tampered with.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at lou@disneyworldtrivia.com.

    As for the concern about email addresses being given out, I have just learned that this was a vulnerability in the CHAT software, and not the forums themselves. I have removed all traces of tha chat software and am beta testing a new system entirely. I have been assured that no data was removed from the site, transmitted elsewhere, compromised, etc. The malicious script just emailed a number of users, but had no access to any information.

    Thank you for your understanding, patience and support.

    Hi Guys, I received a threatening email from this group after I tried to alert Lou of the Hacking. Nut cases the lot of them.
    We had a great time at the Caribbean Beach. Hope to go next year with all the kids and grandkids!!!
