Developing Story: Club Penguin Hacked?

Update: 6/20 9:42 AM PST

The entire Club Penguin website is back up. The issue was most likely not a domain failure, as part of the website was still appearing. Instead, the problem was probably a simple coding error.

For all of those that were worried, Club Penguin was NOT hacked.The Club Penguin website is not like some small WordPress.com blog that’s entire security rests on it’s owner’s email’s password. Club Penguin is made up of hundreds of servers (that’s why they call them servers) that are all protected by various firewalls and such. Don’t let your imaginations run wild. Just because someone can hack a Xat chatroom does not mean they can hack ClubPenguin.com.

Update: 6/20 7:59 AM EST

We are now hearing reports that the reason behind all this is a domain failure, and that consequently, the coding was down. More information as it comes.

As discovered at 5:35 EST this morning, no site having access to Club Penguin can be loaded.

THIS IS A DEVELOPING STORY. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS SIMPLY AN EDUCATED GUESS, AND NONE IS KNOWN TO BE TRUE.

No site from which Club Penguin can be loaded will open. I have been told by others that you are linked to a golf related site when trying to access CP, and also that you get a site saying the domain is for sale, but since I was unable to find either of those on my computer, I’m not sure how true those rumors are.

Don’t believe me? See for yourself.

FURTHER UPDATES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST; WILL BE ADDED THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

Here are screenshots (sorry for blurriness, taken in a hurry):

❗ NONE OF THE INFORMATION IS KNOWN TO BE TRUE, WE ARE NOT SURE WHAT REALLY HAPPENED. ❗

More information will be added as it comes. Again, we do not know how much of this is true, and I will try to add updates throughout the day. I would appreciate if the other staff could try to do the same.

  1. 1st and what happened?

  2. I’ve got a few soloutions to this problem http://i463.photobucket.com/albums/qq358/123nico26/cp.png
    1. The coding is messed up
    2. The coding has been edited and might take a while to show.

  3. The Nachos think the their Domain expired or that they are selling it. !We are not sure if this is true!

  4. The play button is gone.
    And if you go to play.clubpenguin.com it appears that the domain needs to be renewed.

    It is highly likely CP was hacked, after all if people hack CP armies this much why not hack the main site?

    • Because some hackers consider guessing the owner’s password or using a stupid help hack software or being added to the site with an anonymous name is hacking… Plus this is wordpress… And CP is run by a Disney who can make money grow out of trees. I won’t believe some 10-15 year old wannabe troop hacked CP.

  5. The site is not being hacked or sold, The domain is down so the coding was messed up.

  6. i agree with u , i was up at tht time on cp and nothing was working.

  7. I hope they still don’t charge my cp membership cause it’s on my moms credit card

  8. umas domain is down too and i think water raiders

  9. Lol, someone should buy the domain *wary*

  10. Guys, the site isnt there. its completely gone.

  11. theres a clown on the site D:
    but i think its just that the domain expired

  12. Watch some hacking group will buy the domain

  13. CLUB PENGUINS DOMAIN RAN OUT.

  14. Oh good, it was the domain.

    For a second I thought it was Lulzsec.

  15. This is the Who.Is information about CP’s domain right now: http://cdn2.clubpenguininsiders.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/renewal-deletion.png

    If you read it, it says it expired on June 13th, 2011 and that it’s pending renewal or “deletion.”

  16. does club penguin work if you go on miniclip?

  17. and no it doesnt speeder i tried tht it said error, this does not work on my computer

  18. I dont think its working on anyones computer. All i wanted to do today when i got home was go on Club Penguin. I am disapointed

  19. True gordon. But it was not hacked domain just expired. If you go to it for some people it will show up with stuff related with a picture of a clown or a man playing golf. Apparently for me it’s a clown

  20. btw lol i just thought of an idea we should all pitch in like 5 bucks and then all the rich ppl tht play clubpenguin will pay 50 bucks : ) sorry rich ppl : ) but it comes a time when u need to pitch in. and wat if disney doesnt bring back cp , like reby the domain , i think tht is y it is like tht, so many questions so many needed answeres, if cp does not continue wat will happy to us? tht is all im wondering. hopefully the good side of this is tht if cp is for sale the first makers of it will bring it back and we dont have to pay for memberships!
    anyone else agree with this?

  22. CP lost their domain. They simply need to renew it.

  23. CP V still works…. if CP still isn’t working before June 23 we could host it on CP V!
