WipeoutZone down due to DoS attack

On 29th July 2003 the WipeoutZone server was breached and involved in a denial of service attack. The server host later shut the server down to prevent further intrusions.

With recent announcements that phpBB has a serious security flaw, we cannot rule out that the forum was the point of access for the attacks.

Therefor, the WipeoutZone forums have been disabled until they can be upgraded / patched or replaced in some way. Apologies for the inconvenience, we hope to be back with you as soon as possible.

Update : The forums are now restored and hopefully we’ll be able to enjoy a trouble free stretch from now on. Thanks for your patience.
