The Great Hack of Facepunch.

The Great Hack of Facepunch is the name given to an event that occurred during the course of Facepunch's history where a Facepunch member named Pentrazemine threatened to hack Facepunch which sparked a series of unfortunate events to occur.

Background

Pentrazemine sent out mass PM's to Facepunch members which contained: 10 professional hackers. 'The Great Hack of Facepunch' was originally set to take place on Christmas Day but instead took place on Boxing Day, 26th December 2007.

Events

Using a trolled account, Pentrazemine started a thread called 'The Great Hack of Facepunch' which was flamed within seconds.[1] A few minutes later, one of Pentrazemine's so-called 'hackers', christarp, betrayed him by creating a thread detailing Pentrazemine's plan.[2] Pentrazemine then proceeded to troll the mapping forum by posting, "It looks pretty cool, work on the textures though.".

Aftermath

garry's ban spree.

Once the attack was over, Pentrazemine's password had been leaked, and the 'hacker' that had sold him out was now posting that Pentrazemine was about to commit suicide on the other thread. Pentrazemine turned off his PC and went to bed. Approximately 5 hours after Pentrazemine's thread was posted, garry banned all people in the thread for 7 days (permaban for some) for 'Posting in a Banme'.
