my ignores!

My list is in tact, the "banned users" are not banned.

IOW I am seeing the trolls I don't want to see even though they are on my list of banned users.

Yup, my one banner is gone. However, I still have my deluded follower.

he's snarky, disingenuous, self-glorifying and droll.

Thought that was a general description of all Patnetters!
....

Those that are so engrossed with technology will do nothing to stop hackers so could you please STFU.

So is this Strategist's homepage now?

Was the reason the site came down to defeat banning the fucking trolls?

If you are such a delicate snowflake that you can't stand to read different opinions, kindly butt out and leave this site to those with a little more intestinal fortitude! The sheer arrogance of your position is obvious to everyone but you.

Patrick.net hacked!


@Patrick, is there any information on what the hacker(s) did besides briefly knocking the site offline? I'm wondering if the hack might presage a doxing campaign and/or adding people to an ISIL/Daesh kill list, in support of the "Muslim world plan against blasphemous content" that our government enables Pakistan to lead.

I think they just found some data that was indigestible to my site by trying lots of things.

There was a flurry of hits from lots of different places, and some attempts to inject sql right before it went down. I can see that much from the nginx logs.

Unfortunately, the way I brought the site back was to restore the database from the previous night. I should have kept a copy of the bad data for analysis, but did not.

And there are people like Jazz and Dan, who keep putting me on ignore, because they hate facts.

Yes, I don't know exactly how they did it, but fixed a few possible holes and have better monitoring in place now.

There's a backup of the database every night at 3am. So posts and comments from 3am to 6pm on Sept 22nd were lost.

I should really have some more granular system for backing up. Maybe mysql replication.

So today I decided to google my email address. Until recently all one would find are some posts in a frog forum.

Well today shows my email address linked up with my pat net profile on some site that seems to mirror patnet:

https://whatdidyoubid.com/
I wonder if this is somehow related to the recent hack event?

This is a screen shot from google - I've erased my email address.

whatdidyoubid.com was a previous site of mine, run from the same server.

Saw just_passing-though's post. My email account is a burner and nothing linked to it. Did a search and here's a screenshot of the search result.

I should have done the same. However, if Pat is able to take it down I suspect it'll eventually become un-indexed or something. Whatever happens in the long run with stale links.

Assuming Pat can take it down. O_o

Just some googling around and I found other ways people's email addresses are exposed. Notice the URLs are different:

Wow, if I search my email address on duckduckgo.com it takes me directly to my patnet profile:

Not sure why. My email address isn't in the page or page source. Perhaps in some metadata?

I didn't get the same result with duckdckgo.com that you did. Google linked me back with my email to whatdidyoubid.com site.

WTF. My screen shot was legit. I've now searched that email in two different browsers, logged into different email clients and that search result is gone that I posted with the screen shot. Even searched the exact address in the screenshot and all the info is gone on my end.

@Patrick, I get the same result searching my e-mail address via Google. DuckDuckGo returns a bunch of pages that don't have my e-mail address.
