Looks like another hack - I was taken to some kind of Rapidshare site.



The hackers probably figured that a holiday weekend would be a time when tech people might not be available.


Edited to add: A-HA! They were wrong about no tech people. Good work!

Started about 35 minutes ago with (from memory) an error about config file already exists, then something about config.new.

Further refresh displayed dupdb ...

It's not the only site this has happened to recently:
