i’ve been hax0red!

yes, i know chumptastic’s been down all weekend. i’ve been hacked for the first time! i haven’t yet figured out how, but it seems to be acting normalish again (no more sending a million packets to some poor unsuspecting computer). if it goes down again soon, you’ll know why.

update: 20+ runaway perl scripts were the culprit. they’ve been kill -9’ed, and i’ve done a few overdue security fixes. looking at my logs, i can see a million brute force ssh attempts, but thankfully none of those appear to have been the cause. i guess a change of password is in order though….
