    So what was the Hack?

    I am curious as to the Hack that brought webdeveloper.com down and most of QuinnStreet.

    Was it a bug in Ubuntu or in vBulletin.

    It was interesting poking around the code set vBulletin and have to say I have never seen an administration console like that before, C99madShell V2.0 Madnet edition.

    Interesting and a clever exploit, so the script exploited a weakness in both the server and vBulletin if what I am reading is correct, subverting the system AV and breaking vBulletins upload interface.

    Brad Jones and his staff should be complemented for
    getting the site back up and running so quickly.

    Not a bad job, shame it took as long as it did to get back up and running, I was missing the site...
