April Fool\'s Day "Hacking"
« on: April 01, 2005, 11:51:46 PM »
Dear Users,

This site was NOT hacked. The security on this site is sophisticated enough to eliminate most hacking tries if not all.

The anti-hacking department of the Administrators decided to play an April Fool\'s Day prank and make a laughter. A number of users contacted us about the situation. We commend them and are grateful for the care.

With that being said, any future messages that suggest a hacking operation should be taken seriously and reported to webmaster@gsso.net

Thank you.
- GSSO.NET admins

Funny thing is I never thought it was down, I signed in this morning, and I was looking around at the Old Boys Directory, and when I wanted to head back to the homepage it said the site has been hacked, I think that message is still there. If only I had tried signing on when you guys had the real thing going.....Good one though!!!

Hb, you think this is funny, just wait until you\'ve seen who the best responder is, and why.  You, then, can really let it out.
He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool.

If you s-m-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-l-l-l-l-l-l-l what the Prince - is - cooking!!

With pleasure, we announce that the best \"panic\" response to this prank goes to Prince. Below is his message to us:
Quote from: \"Admin\'s Email\"

Dear Admin,
 
I logged on to gsso.net this morning to find that my computer has been hacked through your server.  I don\'t know what\'s going on there, would you care to explain?
 
If you don\'t want me on your site, the prudent thing to do would be, notify me of your decision, with an explanation.  I can remove myself from your membership or instruct my computer not to open your site.
 
Certainly, there is a necessity for an explanation.  You have ONE HOUR to provide that explanation before I notify the appropriate authorities.  As you can see, I already have a suspect and a co-conspirator.
 
If you or you agent originated this invasion, and if it is not remedied, I will utilize any and every avenue possible, including but not limited to legal action and publishing this site, wherever I can, as a site that collects peoples\' information for malicious purposes.
 
Thank you
 
Prince.

Laughing as Hard as Possible....Oh My Goodness, Prince you really deserve that award. This is hilarious, there is no way that anyone wouldn\'t want you on here, without you, this site really wouldn\'t happen as much, the best part is the beginning

:lol:  :lol:  :lol: That was funny. I was literally rolling on the floor while reading this...

It will be interesting to hear how others felt. I was at work when I got word of the hacking.
