Solved Emergency: Problems with some Hackers

Post by Nawat on March 31st 2012, 7:54 pm

I am very unsure if this is the right area, but as this seemed fit and this is all I can do right now...
I'm very panicked so please ignore my strange speech if there is any.
The forum is not mine but another, however I am a Moderator on there and the forum has been compromised by hackers who are quickly deleting every single file and member from there.
I want to know if there is a way to stop them from doing so and to get the forum back and restore it completely.
We cannot reach the Admin, for he lives somewhere else and no one has any means of contacting him.

If you wish to have proof that I am a Moderator on there then I will show as much proof as you need, however the banned all moderators from the forum.
It's a huge problem.


Edit: Thank-you everyone. The Founder has fixed everything. This can be locked now or deleted, however the Administrators do things around here.

I would do what sir chaivas said... I just simply wanted to make sure you can reach the founder... Does he ever check or come online on the forum? If so Private message him!

Hi,

As a Moderator, all you can do is Ban his account, but as your saying he is deleting posts, however, as your saying he is deleting posts, you cannot ban him.
Unfortunately, you as a Moderator can not do anything.
However, when your admin comes online the link posted above from Chivas will allow him to restore the entire forum Very Happy

Yes, the hacker have access to the Administration Panel. They have locked every single person out, we just got a hold of the Founder now. Thank-you everyone for their help and hopefully we can restore everything back to normal.
