Porn Hack!

Post by Jimmy574 on December 30th 2007, 5:39 am

If you saw this thread:
http://help.forumotion.com/general-discussions-f7/waddle-world-has-been-hacked-t10054.htm

Well, I am the official webmaster and founder of Waddle World. I was able to restore the forum, so no worries right now.

I would like someone to protect our Forumotion forums better from hackers and bots. This guy hacked our forum recently and had a big porno picture for the logo. I was also seeing porn pictures on other Forumotion forums that looked like they were by bots. Also, when I ran a forum at eAmped once, porn bots were posting porn on all forums at eAmped. It was like eAmped literally sent out bots to attack us. And now this is starting to seem like it with my Forumotion forum. Can someone correct me on this, and take my suggestion?

Thank you.

Your forum cannot be hacked jimmy you must make sure you have a very strong password with letters and numbers and that you also have a strong password or security question for the email registered to your forum. Make sure anyone you have as admin/mods have the same secure passwords and for their emails. Never give out links with your SID on the end too. The pirn you may have had on your forum will not be from bots, forumotion may allow them on the forums but there are robots.txt files that will be protecting the forum from spam bots.
