Alright, we are back online and kicking. Apologies for the downtime. Rushster, wisely, decided to shut down the site until the situation could be assessed. The old content management system (CMS) was compromised. It didn’t come from an ad banner as some fans have speculated. The old left menu module had a vulnerability.
A few things will be added later on Tuesday: such as the content (Easter Eggs, Store, all games info, lore, etc.) and the news archive.
If you visited Blizzplanet on November 19-20th, I recommend you install Avast, update your anti-virus and/or install the latest Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Tool just in case. If you play World of Warcraft, use the WoW Launcher … it offers an extra protection. You can find it in this path within your hard drive:
C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Launcher.exe
Special thanks to Rushster for putting some extra hours out of his weekend to cast resurrect on Blizzplanet. And to Darknemesis for creating the old CMS that went unhacked for six years.
