In progress My forum was taken over by a hostile . . .

Post by beetlenut on Mon Feb 06, 2012 12:22 am

I was a member of hifiwigwam.net run by "Rudolph Hucker" and he or his buddy "Sixstringrock" gained entry and changed my password so I could not get in at all. I was the only admin and have not been able to request a new password. In the meantime the place turned into a zoo. One fellow from Toronto successfully changed is email address to forumotion.com so he could not be contacted.

Huck and Sixstring were both admins (at wigwam.net) and had access to my real email address that I used to set up my forum. I think, with their years of experience, somehow requested a lost founder's password and changed my password so I could never get in again. I had to register under another name in order to just be able to view what was going on.

I was the only admin at 98% Free so I could not rely on anyone else to see if they could get me in.....

This was my first forum set up and it has been disastrous due to the sick minds (UK) that infest the net.

I don't need any smarty-pant answers like "well, you should have done this" or any other rot. I need to get that forum closed down and off the books. I've already surmised that I was very naive and didn't know the ropes to setting it up in the first place.

I get invalid password. Which means they could have changed my user name or admin function.

OK, first, post several different topics don't encourage anyone to help you faster.

Then, have you tried to connect through utilities ? http://help.forumotion.com/t9692-the-utilities-backup-and-restore
