I bring to you the HLP status report in the quotes as follows....

Quote from: Raa, Nodewars

Friday night dynamic4 was compromised; we have taken it off the network
to be worked on until further notice.

All accounts on this server, and the associated MySQL server will be
changed. Your team will be notified of your new password when the
change is completed, and the server is back online.

If you use the same password as your email or other GameSpy accounts, we
highly advise that you change those passwords also. If you need
assistance changing any information, please email
techsupport@gamespy.com and they will be happy to assist you.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have everyone back up and
running again soon.

Evidently, the reason for HLP being down this long is because Gamespy has been hacked.  :eek:

UPDATE - 19/10/2004: Gamespy has just informed us that the servers are coming back online, but will remain unaccessible for an undetermined period. We hope to have the site and forums available again soon.


This update is from the 3dap site. Doesnt look good guys. An "undetermined" period. Could take a while. Undoubtedly most of you guys have seen this message already...

Heh, It seems that HLP is having some 404 difficulties. I wonder what the problem is. It started at like 10:30 last night. Lets hope that its not permanent this time. If those bastards at gamespy cut us off, the Freespace community could be in big trouble.
