Hopefully people haven't noticed, but several sites around the Revora network, and even beyond have had pages defaced by a group by the name of FACU. If you are a member of this group or are responsible for the hacking, I would like to note that unauthorized use or access of a computer system is a federal crime, and if this is not discontinued legal action may be pursued. I am willing to forgo any attempts to find out who is doing this if they will simply explain to me the hole that is being exploited so that I can better secure the server. Doing things like this helps no one, and hacking such a small insignificant corner of the internet (despite our size, we aren't really large in the grand scale) is not something that gains you 1337 haxx0r status. You are only hurting people who put in time and effort for little to no reward to maintain a system like this. I put it out to whoever is doing this, if you just explain how to protect against attacks like this I will not pursue any manner of retribution.

Well, when it comes to writing an expository essay about counter-insurgent tactics, I'm of the old school. First you tell them how you're going to kill them. Then you kill them. Then you tell them how you just killed them.

Screw them. Pursue legal action if it persists, and even if it doesn't. You owe them nothing, and their criminal actions should not go unpunished no matter what the circumstances.

That's a good idea, Daeda. But if we use this kind of service, we need to talk the details on MSN.

It's probably better to wait until after we have new versions of the various pages as part of the revolution. That way we can test them each before they go live.

Oh I know some great hackers also.... Might want to contact me later.

and Mastermind you dont owe them anything. I would suggest pressing charges now. You probably could make it in court with a break into the MITNet... :S
