Tabletop Gaming News: Hacked!

Tabletop Gaming News’ new servers have been hacked.

As of 5am Eastern time this is what you see when you go to TGN, (screen capture below). Let’s all hope this gets fixed soon.

TGN hacked

Update: the new TGN server is the same server as, so that site is also down.

Further Update: if you go to either site the hack will commandeer your browser window and begin resizing it and bouncing it all around your screen, and who knows what else. So, stay away until we hear it’s safe.

Yet another update: here is a quote from the site owners: “Our server hosts,, had all their sites compromised this morning, including our dedicated machines. We're working on restoring service now. Fortunately we have no payment info stored on these machines, and all passwords are encrypted, so your data should be safe.”

As of noon Eastern time, Tabletop Gaming News is back up and seems fine, I’ll let you guys know if there are any further developments.
