Lol, should we be worried about Stratics?

    Perma Bans have been lifted, I would assume it is true that Stratics has been hacked into?

    You wouldn't believe that perma-ban was just for you? :D

    Oh, wow! Yeah, I would have never seen that page if weren't for your link...lol.

    I only knew of it from UOGuide sources, so wasn't sure what to believe at first. :(

    Well, honestly, UOGuide is inflating the information to make it look worse than it is. I can tell you that Stratics has NOT lost access to it's own website or database.

    The new owners are trying their best to keep communicating.

    Also, I know many of you don't read any of the other forums here at Stratics, so I'll try to pass on any information for you guys.

    The UOGuide information is from Stratics' own announcement which stated:
    Source - http://stratics.com/stories/stratics-hacker-still-active

    JC, your site says:

    "Stratics has posted a message saying the hacker is still active and they don't have access to their own database yet. "

    That's not true. You have misinterpreted the information. The problem is that someone gained access to the database, but Stratics has not been locked out of their own database.

    Yes the root problem is the hacker getting into the database, stratics has not been locked out.

    hehe so that's where the miscommunication lies.
    Expanded to be more clear
    We were never locked out, but we were struggling for a while to lock them out.

    They (whoever is running stratics now) still trashed several years of the OT forums posts. No wonder someone got pissy and hacked them.
