New notice from the Replica Prop Forum
On Jan 5, 2012 our domain name, therpf.com, and database were stolen. After the site was stolen, we temporarily moved to thereplicapropforum.com and have been operating from that domain for the past 3 and a half months.

Due to confusion and concern, we know many members have stayed away from the site altogether during this time and we are sorry that they missed out on the last three months.

However, we are extremely pleased to announce that we now have therpf.com back in our possession and the hacker who stole our site has been shut down.

With that in mind, we will be transitioning back to therpf.com on Wednesday, April 25, 2012.

If you have been coming to our temporary site, thereplicapropforum, you will automatically redirected to therpf.com on and after April 25.

Thank you to the hundreds of you who supported us during this incident and to all of you who have been loyal fans of our community! We are looking forward to serving you again at our original domain!

Please help us spread the word on other sites and forums for those who have been staying away from the RPF during this incident.

Guess I'm a little naive: What exactly is the purpose of spoofing a site like The RPF? A website connected to finance or a major retailer I get, but The RPF?

Thanks Dave.

I couldn't decide which was the real McCoy.

The R2 Builders board (Astromech.net) also got hacked. Probably the same jerk holes.

I received an email notification about this a day or so ago. Great forum, shame this happened to them!

So, how does something like this happen and how can they get their 'site back?

Sounds like they hacked their account information for their domain registration, along with the website database. Then they moved the domain registration to a new registrar and then copied the site over. I wonder what they're trying to do with it though, just be annoying or steal information?

What we are being told on therpf is that it has to do with a "ransom" concept.
"If komorade does not pay 50,000 rubles, I shooting new Directv Commercial where I says 'RPF, I haes it'."
(mind you, the 50,000 rubles is just me being jerky.. I don't know how much he's asking for but the estimated value at the time of theft was around $35,000)
