Airsoftforum.com has been hijacked!

Does anyone have anyway of finding the site, it's been gone since saturday evening!

http://www.airsoftforum.com/board/index.php

Everytime you try that link it goes to a youtube video page. And when you try the master link..

http://www.airsoftforum.com/

It takes you to a very long video documentary on Youtube.

Can anyone find out what happened?

smells like hacking to me, especially since it links to some anarchist crap

Before the hack they stated there software upgrade was going to begin.

I wonder if the change over provided the opportunity for it to be hacked like that.

Could be, but i've got some interesting answers on my thread over at AirsoftCanada.com. The gents over there told me about DNS refreshing and explained that the current IP - 75.126.115.240, is no longer correct, and that it's been changed to 64.202.189.170. It's said that it may take up to 48 hours for the servers to change over and be ready again. So all we can do it wait it out.

I was just told it has something to do with "Operation Sheeple" and that Admin did it.

If it is true, I'm seriously considering not going back to ASF. I don't need politics shoved down my throat on a hobby site. Even if it was a temporary link while the sites down. Bad move IMO.

there was a post in the site announcement section talking about Operation Sheeple. People assumed that it was the site software update but another person said that it wasn't and that they thought it was the wrong thing to do but it wasn't stated what it was.

My guess is this Operation Sheeple and the youtube conspiracy link is the same thing. But that's just my speculation.

Yeah it takes a long time before all of the DNS servers in the world are on the same page.

DNS servers usually don't take more than 24 hours to update. In my past experience of updating web servers, most of the time they update in a few hours.

Actually, only the DNS servers specified for the domain in the domain record are updated, and this normally happens almost immediately.

However, your ISP's DNS server will cache entries to reduce calls out to the domain's DNS servers. And these cached entries typically expire in 24 hours, however some administrators may set the expiration time longer to reduce load.

Additionally, most DNS clients (such as the DNS client on your Windows box) will also cache DNS requests for 24 hours. You can clear this cache by going to a command prompt and typing "ipconfig /flushdns"

Good information guys thanks!

But sadly there is a very poor reason why this all happened. The admin used his forums to forward his own political views onto others.

Here's their thread on it.

Im not trying to start a flame war just posting an opinion. I do not like that he was using his website to promote some conspiricy. To me the people that would try to convert people to be against the government and are proven metally challenged(not saying he is) shouldn't be able to get firearms or even airsoft. I am afraid of the day a bunch of conspirist form together and attack the U.S of A. I really hope that this is not what he is promoting and I am now offically quiting airsoft forum.

*sigh* personally I believe imposing your own personal beliefs on a public forum is irresponsible.

Guys, Please refrain to post your OWN ideas of what is right or wrong. we all know VERY little about what is truly going on in this world....

Someone trying to push his personal belief on the forums is bad but trying to convince everyone that he is actually bad for your own reasons is not better

p.s. We can always create a "conspiracy" thread if you guys like to argue

This guy is nuts, what a crackpot cultist anarchist, I mean what a dumb theory, I personally believe that the US Government has been using gay witches to abort babies and use stem cell research to make oil. But, hey just my two cents

Heres the url to ASB
http://airsoft-barracks.com/forums/index.php

It's been up for a couple days. Major upgrades are in the planning stages through a donation fund that will be set up.

Consider it the larval form of ASB but this larva is strong.
