The Pictorialis Forums have been hacked beyond repair. The hackers have left a message that says that the data is intact and can be restored but I refuse to ask them to do so or pay them in return. From what I gather, the database was modified to stuff the data into table overhead and out of the tables.
I realize that a lot of information (and a lot of hard work from users/programmers) on and about Pictorialis used to be on those forums and I would like to restore them from my last backup (from about 3 weeks ago) which I think I can do. This will take some time and the forums might not be up for some time. I apologize for the inconvenience.
I have received a lot of good advice from PHPBB admins. I concede that I had not upgraded in the past few months and was unaware that such a serious flaw existed that I had not patched. If I do manage to rescue the forums, I will migrate them over to BBPress when I get a chance and some time to script the imports. I am quite disillusioned with PHPBB. As a word of warning to others in the same boat, please make sure you upgrade to the latest every so often.
[EDIT] Forums are back up from a May 2nd backup and the latest and greatest of PHPBB. *whew*
