My Locale NEOH
About Me I started backpacking in the Northeast in high school with 3 buddies where we had quick access to the AT (Hertlein campsite). Continued through college and dropped off during the family-building years. Got back into camping with my sons and Cub Scouts which just fueled the need for more backpacking. Getting out on weekend+ trips for the past few years and loving it all over again.

Shared server
Looks like it is hosted on a shared server for, so not that surprising that the hackers went after a hosting server. MLD most likely not a direct target, just a casualty.
