One of My Sites was Hacked by Mega-Scorpion

Two nights ago, one of my sites was hacked by Mega-Scorpion, at least that's how he identified himself. He left a trail and a link to a forum (Alboraaq Hackers) where he is a part of - a forum of hackers.



If you have been hacked by Mega-Scorpion or Rat.Techie (this other name also showed up on my other site's homepage at one moment), you would have probably seen something like this image above.

It was quite scary that it prompted me to change my other passwords to a more difficult combination of alpha-numeric characters, case-sensitive and including other characters allowed for use. I would advise that you do the same thing so you could lessen the chance of getting hacked by someone like Mega-Scorpion because hackers do exist!

Brother changing password will not do anything...just chk ur pc from any good antivirus...your pc is bugged..
Rat.Techie is not a hacker..he is a noob..may be he has planted a virus in your sytem..Its logging your keystrokes...so whatever you will type as your pasword..It will again send the keylogs of your system....So its better that you chk your pc instead of changing your password again again and again...If you have still any confusion or problem pm me on yahoo.My id is:cyberkalki@ymail.com
