In progress SOMEONE TRYED TO HACK MY FORUM!!!!!!

Post by xXxBlackFalconxXx on August 17th 2012, 2:56 am

So I own a forum called gamers united. When I first started up the site I had a guy help me with the home page (Ace700) in the home page at the bottom he put his name there for credit (sayin he made the home page) soon after he then made his own site active codez and chats to his members sayin How his site is better then mine and my site is crapy this happened for sometime the I took his name off the home page he's sayin I am stealing credit when I a am not I took his name off because he didn't care about the site and it would set a bad example. Then he started posting to my members that the site sucks its for noobs and they should go to active codez. On my site thats breaking the rules because advertiseimg for other sites is not allowed so I banned him for 3 days then one day i look at the groups for that sote and one said ace700 and it said i made the group when i didnt. he came on as a guest and posted again to my members that the site sucks join active codes so I change the permissions so guest can't post and extended his bann (ace700) to 999999 days. At first I wasn't sure if he Had hacked the site then my members conclude that it was him. (they werent on when it happened) today I revived a abuse from him sayin that he is in controll and will hack the site and shut it down if I don't put his name back on the homepage!!!! PLEASE HELP I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELES I CAN DO!!!!!!

does he have your founer account? if not just change the password and ip bann him.


If he does have your founder account he can't close the forum anyways because you need to have the creation email address to fully close it(i am use to forums like that).

If he is in control pm leeloo for how to get it back(i was in that situation, except the guy trased my forum.)

But he can't close the forum as long as he does not have your creation email address.

Hi,

The post, that I posted above might help.

Also, what you can do is go to security and every administrator will have to log in onto the admin panel. There also, you can keep track of who logs in and does what.

Hello,

1st may we know if the founder has still access to the forum? Also, try the link suggested above. Also, a back up must be performed to the forum(back to a certain date) to restore the forum if the founder has access:
