Latest News: Important announcement regarding forum malware attack
March 21, 2017, 12:17:47 AM

Hey everyone, I've got some bad news and some good news.


The bad news: It's just been discovered that goldensunhacking.net was infected with malware around the end of February in 2016.

The good news: There is no indication so far that the attacker was trying to target user data, or impact normal site visitors in any way.



I'm still sifting through everything to determine the damage, but fortunately what I've analyzed so far indicates that the attacker was just using our server as a proxy.  What that means is that they were masking their IP address as our server's to access other sites.  I haven't found anything yet that would indicate regular users of the site would have been impacted by the malware, but I will keep you updated if I discover anything that indicates otherwise.



21 Mar Update

I've found code that could have been used to redirect traffic coming in specifically from the search providers Google, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, and Bing, or replace all of the links on the site with different links for traffic coming from those same search providers.  It appears to have never been configured properly though, and would not have been functioning.  So far this is the only code I've found that could have impacted normal users, but again it would have required additional set up that was not performed, and would not have been functioning.

Although there are still no indications that user data was targeted, I'm continuing my analysis of all of the site's files to make sure, and will keep you informed.  I have no estimate for when I'll get the site up and running again, making sure everything is clean is my main priority right now.

Lord Wolfram: Just wanted to share the tutorials I've been making on various neat things

Lord Wolfram: Greetings everyone!

Fox: The other theory is it could be coming from Mt. Aleph somehow. Umm..?
May 28, 2017, 08:36:28 AM
Fox: I not really sure... but if it is appearing right there like that... it almost seems like something targetted... but maybe it could be the presence of artifacts that are high in psynergy.... and maybe one of those was in Isaac's cabin.... (High concentrations of psynergy causes vortexes?)
May 28, 2017, 08:28:53 AM
Fox: One of the vortexes in a town destroys the bridge... and it looks like the vortex at the end could have destroyed the house (OR maybe have some indirect connection/dunno.), and will probably destroy the bridge the PCs are on as well. :P Umm... 
May 28, 2017, 08:24:53 AM
Fox: at least* Don't they* have*
May 28, 2017, 08:24:03 AM
Fox: From what I read. (Or atl et least my interpretation/memory of what I read.) ... Don't think only really appear every 10 years...?  And hve some connection to the mourning moon (Probably what the vortex is at the end.)
May 27, 2017, 11:46:04 PM
Lord Squirtle: I'm not even sure how that could be advanced unless there is a good reason why they stop showing up.
May 27, 2017, 11:45:13 PM
Lord Squirtle: I think the vortex stuff basically ends maybe 1/4 into the game, at least until the post-credits scene.
May 27, 2017, 08:47:52 PM
Fox: (That's assuming we make a remake, and take out any contradictions or altar them a bit to fit in.) ... However, here's the thing... the Vortexes were corrupted, so the solution didn't quite work out. (And there might have been others trying to do the same thing.)
May 27, 2017, 08:43:49 PM
Fox: Anyway... I don't know much about Dark Dawn... but if I was to advanced the story on the Psynergy Vortexes, I would say that Felix was behind it. - It's like in GS1/GS2... How we were at first led to believe the lighting of lighthouses needed to be stopped... and that flips in GS2.... so I'm going to guess the vortexes is similar.
May 27, 2017, 08:36:22 PM
Fox: If you search "gstla" (even shorter) ... Rom sites are appearing on page 2. .... Hm...
May 27, 2017, 08:24:47 PM
Fox: And the main reason I thought that was semi-intersting... because it's basically advertising... "Hey you're looking up this game?" "Well, did you know you could emulate it?" ... to those very few (mostly children) who don't already know. 
May 27, 2017, 08:22:54 PM
Fox: @ratings spot = I mean of the same rom site.
May 27, 2017, 08:22:00 PM
Foxno ... I need advanced error checking on my English... it's not enough to have error checking in programming. :P
May 27, 2017, 08:19:35 PM
Fox: Who knew... that a simple search like "Golden Sun 2" (With [bno[/b] text for "rom" or "download"/etc.)  will have a link to a rom site on the first results page... not to mention having a ratings spot in the right side-bar.
May 24, 2017, 06:49:14 PM
Lord Squirtle: I guess I'll make a topic for the GBA concept room in Dark Dawn soon.
May 24, 2017, 04:27:21 PM
Fox: Yep ... There are many libraries for many languages... Python, etc... And then there are things like  the Google apis - e.g. http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=(whatever you want to search for)
