iDevgames Website Hacked Again
11:48 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

In an email received this morning from Carlos Camacho, editor-in-chief of Mac game development site iDevGames, comes the news that the iDevGames website has been attacked by unknown hackers.

As IMG readers and followers of the popular game development contest uDevGames know, the internet resource center was previously hacked this year, right in the middle of the contest's public voting period, disrupting the event and postponing the tabulation of the votes.

The method of attack, exploiting a security hole in the Linux kernel, has apparently been used recently on many websites in the last few days. The iDevGames website is hosted on a Linux box, running the Apache 2 server through the Red Hat 9 operating system.

Camacho is currently rebuilding the website from backups, and expects the site to be up soon. Stay tuned to IMG for further news on when the iDevGames website will be back online.
