Solved Please Help! A Virus On My Forum!

Post by jesus77755 on Sat Nov 19, 2011 5:38 pm

Okay, I have this forum virus called "B55", and I have 2 people joining my forum named "Paper Mouse" and "Raymond", what's happening!

Here's my site:

http://smbxjesus77755.forumotion.com/

They said that my forum have spam. They told me to make them "Founder Status", what does "Founder Status" mean, does it mean to make them admin. They told me to make them Founder Status so they can fix the virus. What is Founder Status.

Founder Status mean they want access to your founder account. Never give out your information. The only time you should give that kind of information is when you use the utilities or here. It sounds like they are trying to get control of your forum.

Hello,

Don't give them any rights to your forum. I would ban them right away! Forumotion will never ask for passwords!

And actually they said that "Raymond", and "PaperMouse", are "Forumotion Staff" members. Is this true?

If they are really Forumotion staff, then they would not join your forum just to contact you.

Don't fall for the trap. They aren't Forumotion Staff. Forumotion will only contact you via the admin panel with a message.
