digital vandalism

Post by TireSmoker »

Well, my hosting infrastructure took a major hit early Monday morning, sometime after midnight. I woke up on Monday morning to find my ESX server purple screen (extremely rare), but I had just added new RAM over the weekend.. new hardware can sometimes be flaky, no biggie. I rebooted and all the VMs that do my hosting were just gutted.

Not gonna lie, I got pretty lucky on the backup, but sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. I'll definitely be updating my backup process.

It wasn't so much as an air intake as it was a weight reduction -- I got a rare two-fer!

I don't know how they got in but would they have had access to passwords? I changed mine just for good measure
