Some bad news guys...

I was supposed to be uploading a new update for you all on here today, but sadly I can't do that anymore. You may have noticed the main OverDose site is suddenly missing, with just a simple .sql exploit in its place... Well, thats because the site was hacked sometime over the last 12 or so hours, and the entire directory was wiped. So the OverDose news is gone, all the pictures, concept art etc that was hosted there, gone. The .exe and game .dll's for all our testers, gone...

Thankfully, I have the main gruff backed up locally, so I can just upload that. But some sections, sections I spent hours of work on, are gone for good.

So, thank you kind internet person. Thank you for hacking the site and removing the entire dir, setting us back even further in work load.

Some people are so pathetic...

God dam it. What kind of sick **** does something like this. But on the other hand this is a life lesson to back-up the hell out of everything that's what I do with my maps, and mini mods I make. Any-who I wish you and the Development team best of luck and I hope this doesn't stall the entire development process. ( wish-full Thinking)

Well, damn. I guess it's a good thing that you're prepared for these sort of things. I hope you get things sorted and that that moron gets what he deserves.

Gah that's a major pain, beats me why people would do something like that.
Some people are just ********(im thinking of much stronger words) it seems. Bloody idiots.

Hope you don't give up on this great project.

hm, I always have a anything of my sites locally, so I don't give a **** if someone hacks a site of mine, though I'm disappointed in our humankind when somebody does hack something in a bad purpose.

Bit different when you deal with databases and the like. Anybody can back up simple html files, but we have multiple .sql databases and all sorts, so its a bit different.

every major change in a database gets a backup, btw, ask your Server provider for a database backup

I can back up the sql database every so often but when the whole point is the hack disabled the database and made it none usable, you can only do so much. I cant back up stuff every five seconds, I do have a life, so only so much can be done.

We are still here for ya man. Even though you may have to work harder to get your content ready, it will still pay off in the end.
Thanks for your hard work and dedication!

This doesn't affect development of the game, fortunately. We have multiple copies of code and art in a few computers apart from the SourceForge host.

It still sucks there are some "kids" out there with nothing better to do than to **** about with people's work.

I suppose at the end of the day the site was only ancillary to the project. Sure, it will be f*cking annoying to fix it all up again, but you'll have something up there eventually and it hasn't affected development on the game. Sometimes sh*t just happens.

All I'll say is my condolences on the site, but don't beat yourselves up over a hacker with no life.

Oh man that's low! You have my deepest sympathies! I'm sure lots of good work was lost, but I'm looking forward to what's to come. At least places like Moddb store a part of the history.

Honestly, what's the ******* point of hacking you guys of all people? You've done absolutely NOTHING but good.

Why don't people hack things that the majority of people hate? Myspace, for instance? Or Hannah Montanna's website?

That's really bad (I'd be insane if that happened to me), but if it was "just simple .sql exploit" why it couldn't been fixed beforehand? Anyway, I hope that won't hinder your development much.

My god when I read the title of this news post I thought you were shutting down development. Nearly gave me a heart attack.
