Post by ..XaNiTy.. on April 25th 2012, 10:07 pm

So i had a forumotion site, http://www.Elite-Coderz.Forumotion.com/ some [Language] started bs with me awhile ago just hacked the site, i cant get back in. I dont know how he did it, or what email he used. So sites Crashing as we speak. I was just wondering without an email how Can i get it shut down? Or does it stay up and he just keeps it? The kid sat at home and stayed up ALL night to do this. But owell if nothing is possible that is fine, just had a question. Thanks if you can help!

That's some what impossible, since he has to know the password & email you used to create the forum. Maybe a staff member can help out better. Wink Sorry, that I couldn't be a help.

It is Possible actually. Theres many ActivePerl exploits out there for it. phpbb2 is mainly the one hackable. As long as you have an account on there and use u1 for the founder account. you can get it. BUT then i changed my password. banned his IP and deleted his name and he STILL got in. So i dont know what to do from here.

Please don't double/triple post. Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the edit button instead!

Hello,

For this issue, I suggest you to contact Leeloo(Administrator) and provide her the following info:
Forum Link:
Creation E-mail:
Founder Username:

And explain the current situation to her, request to her to change it to the original creation e-mail and send the new password to your account(for the founder account) and then you can do the back up then or if you wish, you can request it to her too.

I think it is Defaced. It means LOW Security.. Forumotion please upgrade the Security to avoid hacking a site of it.

This is no security issue with Forumotion Systems, if you know how to keep your private information secured, you won't get any trouble with this, also, long passwords combined with letters, symbols, caps etc. will help in avoiding hacking of accounts, avoid also clicking suspicious links.

Since this thread has already been answered and is handled via PM, this thread will be locked now.
