The Forum was Attacked and unfortunately the latest backup was from June 20th so any posts made after that are lost. The forum has been completely re-installed as a result.

I suspect it was a member of the OW community.

It was the fact the person used a UK Proxy first and then a Polish IP which leads me to believe it was an attack from someone in the community. To me it looks like they tried to cover up the attack by using an IP which may look like my own (Since im from the UK) and then forgot to use that proxy later on. A random attacker is unlikely to use a UK Proxy and then a Polish IP address.

There is no hard evidence that it was someone from Poland (As IP Addresses can be faked).
