The court has granted judgement in our favor against the defendents for the full amount claimed plus expenses.

Justice has prevailed!




Background Info here: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/hacked-grrr.19716/


Last week I applied to the courts for permission to serve the documents to a college address of the defendants.

Today, the wheels are turning.

Before District Judge Savage sitting at the Worcester County Court, The Shirehall, Foregate Street, Worcester, WR1 1EQ.

IT IS ORDERED THAT

Permission is given to the Claimant to serve the claim by post to the College address of the Defendants set out in the claim form.

For once, these people will be held to account for their actions :)

Will post any updates here, and if any of you need advise following hacks on your own site, within England, I can offer my help.

Wow. Good luck, Slavik. This is perhaps the first time I'm seeing someone actually go after such nincompoops. (y)

If it was a simple defacing, then maybe I could have let it slide, however, the deletion of data which could cost the site thousands in the long run is inexcusable.

We have nightly backups, however the hack occured just an hour before the next backup, so we lost 23 hours worth of data. Followed by a weeks downtime in inspecting the code and site templates for anything malicious.

I don't care that it is interesting. I hope you simply find justice and help make a stance for those who think they are above the law when they damage property that's others' just (usually) because they got into a dispute with the web site, or were no longer welcome because of their own actions.

Best of luck.
