Sorry about the downtime guys, someone had fun stealing user sessions using an exploit on the site, instead of just informing us so we could patch the site up. :(
The user succeeded in hijacking Nix0ns account, using his admin rights to post fake news, and rename users. These users have all been fixed, and all content touched, has been reverted to its previous state.
We want to stress that the database was never accessed, and no passwords were lost. The amount of user accounts affected is also limited.
We have done our best to make sure this does not happen again, but one little bug is sadly all it takes.
You might have noticed you have been automatically logged out after the downtime, that is a security measure so any login cookies hijacked will not work, we are of course annoyed that we had to logout everyone, but we could not run the risk of user and admin accounts being vulnerable.
However, HLTV.org is here to stay, and a little setback like this will only serve to make us stronger. I hope you will all accept our deepest apology, and forgive us. Security holes are never acceptable, so no excuses, we fucked up.
