Solved Someone hack my forum,please help

Post by ninadobrev on August 18th 2012, 12:09 am

Um,hi.I have a forum by almost 2 year.Yesterday someone hacked my forum.He change my password and I can't log in.First I try with forgoten password,but it didn't work.Then my friend give me advice to write to admin of this forum and I do it.The problem is that I have to way by monday,because one of the admins is not here,but I'm scared.They give me the password but now I fear to change it,because tomorrow can be hacked again.The hacker start to delete posts and remove any changes that are maked in last 24 hours.I see that the "Members connected during last 48 hours " is less than two hours ago and one friend told me that it makes the hacker.Does have a way to fix anything done by him + to restore deleted posts?
I read all the topics here,but I don't dare to change the password,because I'm affraid that the forum will be hakced again.
Oh,yes and I have the hacker IP,but if I ban him what is the guarantee that he won't change it and hack again?
