I think my forum has been hacked

In progress I think my forum has been hacked

Post by HDIF? on October 1st 2012, 8:32 am

Hey, I'm new here and I really hope I posted in the proper area.

My other admin and I just noticed a slew of guests viewing hidden rooms that only specific users have access to. The ip's are different but they are all from two areas; Santa Clara, Ca and Ashburn, Virgina. We have banned approximately 20 IPS but they keep coming back. Is there an explanation for this and anyway to just make them stop coming completely?

Thank you in advance for your help

If the areas are only viewable by certain people, guests will only see the log in page even if the administration panel says they are viewing a certain area.

Yes which is why we are confused and think we were hacked somehow.

In our admin panel we see guests viewing these private areas when they shouldn't be and their IPs trace back to those cities I mentioned above. Every time we ban one of the IPs more come.

Guests really can not do a lot of things because most features are for registered members.

Could you post a link to an area in question, and I will tell you what I see?

Right I understand that, I've been using forumotion for a long time. Guests shouldn't be able to do anything but these guests are managing to get into our forum somehow.

This is a screenshot of all the IPs we just banned because of this:

I can't post a direct link.

My forum link is: survivorimdb47.forumotion. com (except no space)

I don't really know what else I can give you, guests should only be able to see the login page.

You would have to sign up for the forum but even then, only specific user groups can view areas.
