PRESS RELEASE: AVSIM Hacked!!

Tom Allensworth, CEO and Publisher of AVSIM, today issued the following announcement; “We regret to inform the flight simulation community that on Tuesday, May 12, AVSIM was hacked and effectively destroyed. The method of the hack makes recovery difficult, if not impossible, to recover from. Both servers, that is the library / email and web site / forum servers were attacked. AVSIM is totally offline at this time and we expect to be so for some time to come. We are not able to predict when we will be back online, if we can come back at all. We will post more news as we are able to in the coming days and weeks. END

Best Regards,
Tom Allensworth

Explains clearly why Avsim is unreachable! Letīs just hope they can get everything back again and that they can catch the hacker.

Wow - that is bad news! I noticed yesterday that they'd only just come back online after their server upgrades... 

Hope it's all fixable, backed up etc... would imagine so if they've just done a server change (?)
