The SBC Forum Attacks were hacking attacks that lasted from July 19, 2011 to July 21, 2011. The culprit has yet to be caught, although fingers point to MechaWave, who was banned from both SBC and SBM.

An SBC News video with footage of the hackings.

July 19

The initial attack started around 5:00 PM PCT, 8:00 PM EST when tvguy entered the Xat chat, wondering why he'd been banned. The users onlined were shocked when 70s found out HE did it. Soon after, others were banned including staff members like jjsthekid and Clappy. The damage was minimal the first night, like a few color changes and temporary bannings. Passwords were changed as a precaution. Also, a user named 'Pfft" posted in the Guests Paradise something ominous and mocking, stating that it was sad that SBC had drained the activity from SBM, and said, 'You guys have fun ;)." The IP was traced, and a search was done on SBM, iNick, and SBC , three popular sites. 70s reported it was someone who had posted a lot on SBC, but deleted their account. Nothing came up on iNick or SBM.


July 20

The second night got steadily worse. Around the same time (5:00 PM PST/8:00 PM PST) the same account was hacked through 70s's account. The forum was ruined and took a long time to clean up afterwards. The Entertainment boards and Staff Lounge were primary targets, the Entertainment board being moved entirely into the Krabby Kronicle and Staff Lounge being deleted and all the topics spilling into various forums. MDPP traced the IP, and reported that it went back to a Sprint account, which meant it was somebody who was trying to cover their tracks.


July 21

The last night was the worst. Everything was made black, the banner was torn apart, the widgets were deleted, and navigation bar buttons were deleted. Every staff member except Clappy was de-admin'd and Clappy didn't come online until the following morning. Afterwards, the forum was cleaned up. Everyone assumed it was Clappy, but it was actually the hacker, who wrote he hoped SBC had learned a lesson and that the hacker would be watching. It was then decided SBC would move to a more secure and paid host. A similar hack occured on the enemy forum owned by former SBC user ACSBehemothHellcat, the Rebellion Against Cyber Bulliers forum.

Aftermath

Following the events, speculation swarmed iNick, SBM, and SBC. Everyone assumed MechaWave because of his straightforward posts that he blatantly said he did it. However, several users said MechaWave couldn't hack 'for shit.' Others, however, said Mecha was always very weird and an outcast so that it made sense that it would've been him. Through this, though, SBC and SBM have become close friends and allies, members finally resolving their differences. The hacking has gone down as the most damaging attack on SBC in its history.

Reveal

In the end, it was discovered that a person named MarioGeek92 hacked the site that day.
