BuxWiz has Security Holes

Yesterday, BuxWiz, one of the reputed paying PTC sites, had announced on their forum that they were having some security issues with their script. And because of this, they had to disable the Support Page, Private Messaging, Banner Advertising, and the Cashout Page until all technical issues are resolved.

Here is a quoted message from one of BuxWiz's administrators:

We have detected some very serious security flaws on some parts of our script - The Support Page, Private Messaging, Banner Advertising and Cashout page.

We are putting in all the work we can to get them up back and running, but we will take our time if needed to get it as secure as possible, as a group of cheaters today have used the security holes to cashed out amounts they do not deserve. To prevent further abuse of these flaws, we have disabled the above mentioned pages. We will enable them one by one as soon as we fix them.

I think I won't get some sleep for the next few days, but I hope it wont take that long.

Also, we are experiencing some backdoor issues and will soon try to solve them, so some downtime is expected in a few days, but we will keep you updated.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

UPDATE: Support module back up.
UPDATE 2: Private Messaging back up.

The above quoted message from BuxWiz's admin clearly shows that BuxWiz was hacked. They haven't revealed as to how much was cash outed, but members can only hope that it's not enough to send this site into a great fall. An update from the admin told us that some of the security holes had already been patched, however, the cashout page has not yet been enabled.
