Can someone tell me why I registered and am logged in, but can't post? I don't even have a button for it.

Interesting, apparently the front page of Barrreport was hacked by some group calling themselves X-root. They replaced the splash screen with something that looks like a geocities site from the 90's. It's only the front page though, as you can go directly to the forums and bypass it. Amateur hackers

Looks like they need to keep their software updated.

They hacked the server for the ISP.
I do not think they were after the BR per se.

Default Barr report got hacked

If you visit Barr report now you will see that it got hacked.

I would advice anybody who had an account on barrreport.com and uses the same password on that site anywhere else (like here, email, creditcard website, battle.net, amazon, etc, etc) to change their password.

Default The Barr report was hacked.

I went over to the Barr report today to look in the sale/trade section but the whole site is down. A message popped up that it had been hacked by some douche named X-root.

Really lame. The hacker tries to act like he's doing a favor by testing security.

In my eyes the hacker just did the equivalent of breaking into Mr. Barr's house.

Hope the jerk gets caught.

Yes indeed. I would also warn users to avoid the home page until it is repaired. You never know what the idiots that do this will try on your own computer. Instead, go to the forum page http://www.barrreport.com/forum.php it appears fine.

I'd say try and find a different server, this one has a pretty bad track record.
