I feel like moot is putting on his meximoot persona to avoid talking about this situation, also watch out for the janitors they're trained to use reverse psychology in irc.
i'd appreciate a warning instead of a ban if you feel like i'm breaking your feel- i mean rules
Everyone knows the hack happened.
Everyone knows some Aussie was behind it.
It was rather funny
>Implying janitors are capable of using any form of psychology
And all the threads are being deleted cause they're becoming spam at this point.
Moot cowered as the doors to his panic room were being punched down. Every powerful Australian fist banging against them shook the rooms walls, and sent Moots framed images of Woody Allen and Shimon Peres falling to the floor. He backed into the corner but realistically he knew he had nowhere to go, as the door collapsed open under the Australian assault
What Moot saw in the doorway stunned him A large, well tanned man, with an outback hat on his head and a Zyzz tattoo on his shoulder. "G'day mate". bellowed the man, as he walked towards Moot. ''Get them poofter fucking skinny jeans off mate".
Moot knew he had to do as he was told. The last time he tried to fight an Australian, his website was destroyed.
"D-d-d-on't hurt me please", stuttered Moot, "I'll expose my anus like you exposed my janitors"
The Australian man smiled as Moot began to undress in front of him "Corr, fair dinkum mate, thats a pretty nice dick". Moot tried to smile at the compliment, but he couldn't smile knowing what was about to happen. "Listen mate" continued the Aussie; "You'll have to do a sexy dance, at the moment an erection is like a 4chan pass, I'm not getting one because Moot isn't doing anything for me"
Moot stood up and began to sway his body from one way to the next. He could see the Aussie begin to smile, and he could see his penis begin to stand. Moot was, at this point, in tears, and completely humiliated. "Thats right mate, keep crying you soft bloody wanker" laughed the Aussie. "The floods of tears right now could drown Queensland", he bantered.
Moot looked at the Aussie and got down on all fours. He turned round and said "P-please, just fuck me and leave" The Aussie laughed once more and looked at Moot "What do you think I am, some sort of poofter?". The Aussie left the room, with moot by himself, in a puddle of tears, his anus exposed to the open air.
Someone found an SQL injection in >>41552828
Since moot doesn't protect his credentials properly (they're just stored in the database apparently), he was able to gain mod privileges and fuck with 4chan for a bit. Also had access to the email addresses of 4chan pass users.
We don't know much about the server being down because moot refuses to talk about it. Maybe moot was fixing stuff, but apparently the only fix that's taken place is the vulnerable script being deleted.
>command line being called via PHP
I am sure this won't be the last time we're getting hacked. Just look at that mess. What the fuck. How is that running this place? I always wondered why 4chan wasn't open source but THIS, THIS EXPLAINS.
It would immediately scale the attack vector.
thi is it... this is where it starts.. the final impact..
hw is that even possible, even tiny PHP frameworks like codeigniter and cakePHP force you to use their wrappers to avoid parsing shit directly
...is he using raw PHP? moot what the fuck man
Frankly I think the whole situation is hilarious and considering that posting was disabled for a second time (thankfully just as I was going to bed) it's clear that moot is majorly butthurt over all of this.
THIS IS WHAT YOU GET FOR BEING TECHNOLOGICALLY INCOMPETENT, A RANDOM MACFAG FROM REDDIT JUST OWNED YOUR ENTIRE SITE TWICE BECAUSE YOU'RE A LAZY FAGGOT WHO'S TOO BUSY WEARING GIRLS CLOTHES AND WATCHING ANIME
This should be a lesson for the staff. moot has been known to not give a single shit about /int/ and its moderation policies; check the archive, there's not a single post from him that isn't actually Ausmoot. No single justification for the former janitor policy was given. Not one request from /int/ (such as a history board, the ability to conceal one's flags, etc.) was listened to. No one from the mod team seems to give much of a fuck about /int/'s quality either. This will remind them that this board has users that need to be taken care of too. This will also remind them that if you aren't transparent to your users, sooner or later said users are going to want to know in one way or another.
>Apparently there is shit ton of cp on /b/
have you never been there once?
those faggots argue daily about the legality of shopping a child's face onto hardcore porn.
they fill threads of cartoon loli with photos of children's faces, or kids eating ice cream.
then they'll call anyone disgusted a white knight.
on second thought it's a good thing you've never been to /b/
But it wasn't leaked YET. It only had like 15 hits or so when I first checked it and now it's rapidly climbing towards xxx. Someone must have put it there but just let it be. I think when the aussi hacked he read the dev forums and found the pastebin link. Maybe they used it as a backup or something.
Welcome to a new world, now you get to explore the chans outside of 4chan, you will learn much on your journey through these strange, dark corners of the internet.
*from Pastebien* IT'S A HER!
FWG is a female tripfag that regularly posts on /int/ and /sp/. For the past few months, an Australian poster had been attacking her with posts on /int/.
On April 23rd, 2014 at ~7:30 AM EST, an Australian poster adopted the admin capcode and began posting screenshots from the 4chan moderator back end on /int/ and /g/. Mosts posts were regarding FWG.
It's entertaining because moot is a faggot who doesn't give a shit about some of his users and doesn't care about transparency. Yeah it's his right and it's also my right to call him a cunt for it and to rejoice when people fuck with him.
Lets look at the evidence
I mean look at all these aspects, all of those are the enemy of /b/, and most of those aspects are the enemy of 4chan.
Looks fishy that someone like that was capable of doing an SQL injection. Inside job by moot to change the site.
i think you're wrong this is from his twitter
I don't get it. Someone manages to get in one of the most notorious backend administration panel and all he does is does some shout out to a three character user name? Why the fuck doesn't he go silent and download all of the moderator and dev boards. Then fuck up the site real good by slowly inserting random shit in the source code like somewhere deep burried down IF BOARD == '/b/' && rand(0,100) permanently_ban_poster()
This had so much potential yet is wasted by some idiot thinking it is more fun to post as moot. The entire ban log should have been dumped on pastebin. Including the moderator boards, moderator IPs, 4chan finances et cetera.
Instead we get this. Fucking useless.
>at the moment an erection is like a 4chan pass, I'm not getting one because Moot isn't doing anything for me
This is the greatest simile ever written.
He was probably smart not doing something done.
Imagine if they had to shut down the site for more than a couple hours.
All the 4channers that would suddenly have to spend a day doing something.
at this point i'd just like to say that lulz were had
sooooo we help Mcfaggot moot? or do we just watch as this shittie imageboard gets more shittie?
The best part is that moot just goes stealth and in a few days, weeks or months nobody will remember. All of you think you have accomplished something but in the end nothing changes. The guy who did this will be forgotten and probably silently prosecuted by law enforcement. Everybody banned will have their bans revoked, and all CP-bans which were lifted will be restored by a simple backup.
4chan has been hacked at least five times really HARD and I doubt any of you remember or even know. That's right, in a few months you will question yourself "How do they not remember?" but at that point you will realize that user-loyalty to 4chan is very low off to a very core user base.
People will remember.
We just won't talk about it cause it isn't funny anymore. It'll pop up in nostalgia threads though.
Just like the time /g/ got the administrative passwords to that one school's system.
bull ring in her nose
FWG = French WhiteTrash Girl
holy shit that is not sexy, would not pay to have sex with
So, what did we actually find out from this?
Some info on an relevant tripfag called FWG
We know 4chan passes sell like hot cakes and Moots more then breaking even with them
....am I missing anything here?
there's baby CP on /b/
moot is done he so done
look in the news for admin of 4chan arrested for CP
Clear evidence we are being jewed out. Moot telling his fairy tales of "4chan is struggling to financially survive" are FUCKING bullshit.
That, and your IP its banlog is kept. So whenever you post something you will probably get banned depending on your previous bans. So if you have a lot of bans in the past, mods will be more trigger happy.
it probably also effects your plea you put in on the banned page
I just saw this link on /b/ regarding the hack and saying it has more info. Can I click it? Can someone check?
Yes there has.
There was literally CP yesterday.
The fucks wrong with you?
And I don't mean child models either. I mean actual CP.
It gets posted all the fucking time.
Sure, it is nowhere near as much as older days.
It gets even better, a picture the guy posted of hm banning the FWG bitch he was stalking showed that it also tells moderators if you have a pass or not when banning you.
I wonder if they become less trigger happy when they see that...
But it is also still used as a currency, oddly enough, for all kinds of shit.
But most of that has moved over to teen porn these days. "tell me how to do this /b/ while I post teen porn"
"PHP is literally shitty.
There is not a single good thing about it.
It has no use cases.
If we use the typical "every language is like a tool in the toolbox, you need to use them for their correct purposes or they will just be a pain", you know what PHP is in the toolbox? PHP is a rotten, dusty sandwich you forgot at the bottom of the toolbox, and then you decided to hammer a nail with it.
THAT is PHP.
PHP is everything wrong with programming languages AS A LANGUAGE.
It is all the terrible decisions that people made before they were turned down, AS A LANGUAGE.
Even consistent features in the language are broken the instant another file type is used.
The fucking devs that MADE the language don't even know the difference between == and ===.
Here, I will tell you, even the non-programmers here should get it.
1 == "1" is true.
1 === "1" is false.
== compares the value of two variables regardless of it being apples or oranges.
=== compares both the value AS WELL as the type, so you can't have 1 apple and 1 orange, they both need to be the same.
Simple, right? Those braindead cunts don't even understand that. There was a huge argument on the PHP devchats years ago over this and they got baleted.
PHP is a dead horse that should have been cleaned up years ago.
All the good devs left the project and the only ones that remain are the absolute noobiest cunts around."
Am I the only one thinking moot simply doesn't read his email I have seen him post that firstname.lastname@example.org for years but haven't had a single reply in years.
I do see his twitter feed has two emails posted but then again as the faggot he is he also posts the emails they were sent with (even the creator of that cock.li website).
>1 == "1" is true.
>1 === "1" is false.
But that's a string, 1 doesn't equal to "1", but 1 equals to 1 integer.
I use PHP daily, and to be honest with you, it doesn't have built-in security, you just gotta figure out ways into making your site secure, but in the end, anything has a hole, like a vagina, nose, ears, ass, penis, mouth.
It is true.
PHPs devs no longer have a clue any more.
All the good devs left it years ago and the ones that remain are in permanent suffering, like all of us here.
Every use-case for PHP can be done better with literally any other language.
The ONLY Good Thing PHP has for it is there are shittons of libraries and hosts for it.
That is a PHP problem only.
>4chan is struggling to financially survive
How much do you think it costs to maintain servers that handle the amount of traffic 4chan gets?
How much add revenue do you think Moot gets?
If not in private mode, any images you see are automatically downloaded into your cache. And last I checked the laws on possession of CP say nothing about thumbnails being exempt. If you had the extremely shit luck to be found with a thumbnail of CP from /b/ in your cache, then enjoy being labeled a pedo for the rest of your life.
In practice though no one is going to bother going after every 4chan user who saw a particular thread.
Cloudflare sponsors him and hosting isn't that much as it is all static, cached content here. Maybe 50K, 100K absolute maximum. He gets double of that with Passes, contracts, creative-commons licenses and advertisements.
Hey, fun fact for most of you in this thread, if you have auto enabled, majority of the images in a thread get downloaded to your computer without clicking them if you have image expansion enabled.
Point is, for a pleb who does not use private mode and does not clear their cache automatically (or at least very frequently), and I'm sure there are plenty here, shit that was automatically downloaded to it can potentially be found by law enforcement, who gives no fucks if its in the cache folder or ~/Pictures/CP.
>The guy who did this will be.. silently prosecuted by law enforcement
How can anyone even believe that? Why the fuck would the police in Murrika bother arresting someone in Australia for exploiting 4chan, of all website?
