Someone is hacking my users' accounts

Post by Brianman908 on December 23rd 2011, 10:36 pm

Someone has been hacking my users' accounts. They're spoofing their IP address. They have numerous IP addresses that all trace to the same location 38 degrees latitude -97 degrees longitude, in Kansas. I've banned all the IP addresses but they keep coming back from a different one. Does anyone know how I could trace their real IP address?

Hello,

Sorry nope. The only thing you can do is banned the IP's. You can make user accounts be activated by you only in the user & groups // user options // who can activate accounts // admin

I'm not sure. They've gotten on some of my users' profiles and edited their comments and put vulgar stuff, and they changed one of my users' password. I changed the password for them and banned the ip address, but they keep coming back with a different ip. I've banned like 5 or 6 IPs now. They all have the same location. 30 degrees latitude -97 degrees longitude, in Kansas.

Sorry but like MrMario said you have to ban each time they come.

Do you know any way of finding out their ISP?

The only way is to be log in at the same time they visit yout forum and check the first page of the administration panel (bottom right corner). Or if they have post, you can check their IP addresses from the posts.

I can get the ip address that they are using, but I want to find out who their internet service provider is

Well the normal website that checks their ip address info gives an ISP, but it's a different ISP with every address. The proxy site they are using must fake an ISP every time they use it. I'll try that site. thanks for your help

If hackers are entering your forum address, the best thing is to close the forum for 2 days, the'll stop accesing it anymore and you'll don't meet problems anymore.

So, do it and see the results.

But, make sure that hackers aren't the users who pretend are hacked and they want you to delete the forum because they really want the forum name and domain. It's a classic this.

Do what I said to you and see the results, if it works you'll continue administrating and moderating your forum without any hacking problems.

Take care and good luck!

I think that you must be connected all time and if there's another administrator do the same... Wink

I know how to resolve this. He's on 1 host who let's him change his IP. Ban the host.

Example:
12.34.56.78
12.34.56.*

If he bans the host, he'll ban lot of people who'll try to acces the forum. If I ban let's say 89.89.89.89, I'll ban all the people with this IP(more than 500+ over the world)

So, it's not recommended.

Try what I said and wait for the results, if there's no change, just do what MrMario said.

More of the hackers are from Romania, there are just 2 or 3 hosts. So, if he bans 1 host, he'll lose maybe 100 users from Romania.

I can't find the 25 or 30 sites hacked by a hackers team, a big hackers team from Romania. Big sites!

But, I suggest don't ban any host, you'll lose some users. Every user is important!

I'm not asking for proof of that. I'm asking proof of how you know there are 2 or 3 host in Romania.

I'm pretty sure there's more than that, yet you failed to provide proof.

Just because you can't find no more host doesn't mean there not there.

Yeah well i never heard of a hacker just hacking user accounts and not the forum as a whole,
So to me something is just not adding up with this?

tell the users to create new accounts and ban/delete the other accounts.
Be sure they do not share their pass words and also have strong passes as well.

I know how they hack users' accounts. It's so simple! Does anyone hear about the keyloggers? With the keyloggers persons can simply find other person's password and it's called ALMOST hacking, because they didn't hack the account, they just saw the password using a hack.

So, kirk, this is why they just hack the accounts, because they use keyloggers and the founder doesn't have any keylogger in his computer so they can't hack his account and then hack the whole forum.

That's assuming that every single member has the keylogger. I wouldn't really agree with your post Razz

If they download an image, video, everything they can be easily hacked by a keylogger in the image/video.
