This Friday, July 17th, the website FurryBrasil went through an attack that deleted all files in their server, including other furry projects in development and other non-furry sites. Not even log files survived to tell the tale. FurryBrasil has suffered loss of data before, but never under malicious attacks.
There was another victim yesterday (16th) morning, around 3am (Brasília time). Brazilian furry portal Fauna Urbana suffered a minor denial of service attack, that knocked the main site (and other shared furry and non-furry projects) for a few minutes. No invasions or data lost in this case.
Not long ago, Furry News Network alerts there’s a hacker group that uses the furry fandom as a bait. We’re going through times in which the most powerful nations and corporations are clashing in the online space, and the Internet is definitely far less secure than it has been.
At Fauna Urbana Network we’re enhancing our plans for data security, backup and disaster recovery. We also advise that one never uses a password that may be in a dictionary, plus avoid password re-usage.
