Wurm Online website down after SQL attack

Jef Reahard

Wurm Online's familiar greenish-brown website has been replaced by a stark reminder of the oft-unsavory nature of the internet. The game itself is in perfect working order, but the forums, blog, wiki, and main website were all compromised by an SQL injection attack discovered yesterday by Wurm's three-man dev team.

All of the affected pages have since been removed, and the Wurm team is currently deciding on a PHP-free solution for its web presence going forward. The news blurb on the temporary front page says that the decision will likely come next week. In the meantime, fans can keep up with developer happenings via Tumblr and the forums.

Wurm is an open-world sandbox MMO that was developed in Java. It originally launched in 2006.
