Did the private messages have this in the title [Contact]? Is RE Dlvinoo ( l = L ) in the memberlist?

Hello,

Why not make it so users need to post on the forum before you send a PM, so that you can ban the IP.


But if you don't want to do that, just ban the member.

Wait, do you manually activate user's accounts? That may be another reason why the hacker gets through. And let me clarify that the user is indeed not a hacker, he is just a random user who intents to give your members a virus or trojan. Wink

It is a weird phenomenon that has never been able to be reproduced, let alone happen twice in 2 years. Im orry but there is no way to find out how it had happened, nor to correct it, until the techs can reproduce it.
