Server Issues vol. 5

You can take my Website, you can take my Plugins, but you can never take my Windmill!

Here's what happened the last 24 hours:

Server mysteriously went offline, saw that the server folders were deleted by a hacker, changed password for dedicated server and restored the files.

Wake up the next day and find out that it all got deleted again by the hacker, Website go's down, now unable to do anything, reinstall dedicated server and add more security (its pretty crazy).

So I hate to inform you we have to build the Website, Server and Teamspeak from the ground up, this will take a few days. I am sorry for the inconvenience, all Donators will have their ranks restored.

Why would a person even bother doing this, do you guys know who did it?
I now know what happened, the whole hack was because of a security flaw within Redis that caused Freeware Ransomware to go onto the dedicated server and deleted the minecraft directory as well as the website and put a message saying if you want your files back please pay 2 bitcoin
