Assaultcube got hacked

Assaultcube seems to have been hacked yesterday. Homepage, Forum and Wiki were down because of something like a DDOS attack by 77.236.4.61 from Kraków in Poland. Very inconvenient.

That did remind me of Tibia, where hackers came from Sweden or Poland and all the time.
But Assaultcube is a free game and not really a famous one. I can’t understand the motivation for an attack. Maybe someone was so angry about version 1.0 making his cheatprogramm for 0.93 obsolete?

Clown{TyD} rescued the Assaultcube world.

We could watch the rescue action nicely in Assaultcube’s IRC channel.
