Solved Hacked

Post by grammasmitty on August 17th 2012, 6:29 am

I've got 2 forums. One is supposedly locked up and private, new members have to be approved and activated by Admin. The other is open for anyone to join. This evening I was notified of a new member in each forum. The username is the same for each. So far nothing has happened, but now is the time to prevent trouble. In forum 2 when I went in to check out this new member he didn't exist. That means the account was deleted. The only way to do that is to go into the Admin Panel (users cannot remove an account). So I know he can get in.
What can I do?

Thank you for clarification and direction. Especially for reassurance about the backups. Have gone to both forums (as well as my emails) and strengthened passwords and advised others to do the same and advised about email. Hopefully this was just someone with time on their hands and a morbid sense of a little obnoxious fun.

Issue solved Very Happy
