Solved Suspicious users

Post by miamia005 on November 24th 2012, 4:50 am

Hi,

I don`t know that is happening but I belive my forum is attack by hacers.
One topic of my forum is split on 2 different topics, and one of them is locked. I removed special users (moderators), unlock the topic, try to put it back 2 topics in 1, and coundn`t.
Everytime I try It says one topic is locked, and I know I unlocked it 2 seconds ago.
When I go in admin panel I see many users from Virginia and California, I banned the adresses, but I don`t know where they coming from, but few seconds ago I see they are on forum again.
Also I see in last post of one topic sending links from other topics from my forum, and the user are coming from is not online. I banned it anyway, and I see link again. How is that possible????
Also now, I delete message from the user I banned, and the spamming link is shown on the other users post which is the last at that topis (locked topic), I didn`t locked Very Happy I really don`t know what`s going on? Sad
And how can I do backup for forum??

Tnx

ACP < Users and Groups < Administrators < Delete everyone except yourself from the group < Save

Index < Profile < Change your password < Save

ACP < Generals < Forum On Holiday: Yes < Save

ACP < Generals < Forum Underconstruction: Yes < Save

Put it in defensive mode like that and while the forum's on construction, fix the things you need fixing.

Thanks. If it`s automaticly split the messeges into 2 topic, no worries about it.
Can u tell me how to change the titile of topic? I`m trying to find...
Also, as u can see on this pic, the links are shown by their own, no one doesen`t post it. Is it spamming?
How they show there? Btw that`s the last page of locked topic, and the links are from the previous pages. I delete those links once, but shown again.

Are those links connected to the topic that was split?

If not, please do change the permissions by following these steps:

ACP < Generals < Categories and Forums < Forum of the one with the said permission < Permission < Set it in guests, but make sure you're careful on where to set it as guests in the forum's permission < Save

Edit: The said steps is the way for you to allow guests to view it in case you didn't get what I said.
