I don't know about you all but when I try to log on to the page it comes up but then redirects me to some other page that is a malware trap. What ever you do close the page immediately or you might get infected. Please let me know if this has happened to anyone else. I hope not just be careful.

Yeah. It's fucked. I cleaned my registry and ran an anti-virus scan. I think I'm okay. DO NOT CONNECT TO ZAPPATEERS.

Not yet, sadly.

There's still some malware left trying to bully you into running a fake virus scan - DON'T!!!.
This time it's also dropping a file called "pack.exe" into your normal download folder. Don't run it or you will be spending ages rebuilding your system.
Just for fun, I scanned it with two different current anti virus programs & both reported it safe.
Whatever it is, it must be new & hot off the presses if the antivirus companies haven't caught up with it yet. A total pain in the ****.

I hope these morons sleep easily at night. Perhaps one day they'll get a life instead of trying to ruin those of other people.

This is a cut & paste from notepad as the malware is jumping on me at the second page of Zappateers, so sorry if there's some junk or typos.

I'm also running on backup as my motherboard fried.

It's been that kind of week :(

Zappateers is back up and safe. A chance it could go down again, a permanent fix will take some days. We have a work around now, and anyway it is safe again. Feel free to stop by. Rebuild will be slow, so please be patient.

I asked flambay by email, and it appears the site got attacked again. Hey they seem to have their hands full, so it is understandable. Best thing they can do is work on the site.

lots of sites having trouble these days..

front page from *somewhere*


I know some of you are bummed by the KS message below. It’s true in terms of the facts.

Site is unmaintained to the point where it’s actually getting no fun to use

Several features are missing or malfunctioning

One of the bugs prevents us from editing SOME of the accounts, thus not allowing us to ban trespassers. It is true for 2 accounts only, though – at least so far.



However, truth be told, nothing of the above is new. The site’s been mostly unsupported by sysop for years now. The log checker etc. has been missing for a long time. Accounts – that’s a new one, but come on, there always are some rotten fruits – it’s not like we always banned all bad accounts, as we simply are un aware of the most of them anyway...The site’s security has not decreased significantly.

KS intention was to send message to the sysop – obviously, a failed attempt, as the sysop does not download stuff and will not notice that.

The site is created by two sides: staff and members. Staff as a whole is obviously failing its duties, that’s true. I’m not blaming anyone or picking at particular members, merely stating the fact.

Does this mean we, as members, are to abandon the site now and cease activity? Achieving what? If the site is to continue, it falls on us, uploaders and users to make it active, despite its flaws.

As a staff team we are strongly determined to change the current situation – please show us that you still care and that you still want and need the site and we have something to care for.
