Attacked
« on: April 22, 2007, 10:36:54 PM »
Our server is suffering a serious attack today, all files have been deleted by the attacker.

The server will be restored for sure,  even though unfortunately this is a rather big site and it will take a long time to get it restored - however some of the files might never be got back.

I have another question here:

Is there anyone who has the similar experience? If so will you consider to report it to authorities like FBI and local police?

Any idea would be appreciated.

I would definitely consider reporting it. Do you have details of the attack? I once had an attack where someone installed a php file that would have acted as a complete hacking control panel but I shut the security hole and deleted the file and the problem was solved.

So far we know the attacker was likely from Vietnam, he/she deleted the entire web folder, mail folder, logs folder, and so on.

From my own view its activities shows the attacker would be more like a kid who does not realise what he's doing is called crime.
