FICGS down, server HACKED!

The server was down for about 1 day, all my apologies. FICGS is still secure and was not in danger or compromised at any time, nothing was lost during the process, but another site on the server was hacked so the server was blocked to avoid to spread the virus. Everything should be ok now.

To be sure that no game will be lost on time because of this, I've added 2 days to any player expected to play and 12 hours more to all players. Thanks for your patience and sorry about all that!

Actually I could have restarted the server in its normal mode earlier but I was to be sure that I had found all files added by the hacker and moved all files of the other site that had a security breach (and some more admin things)... I had to be very careful but finally I did not even had to reinstall the server. All this was a good lesson for me on anti-hacking.
