he can acces via schools computer, but have you though that being a hacker you need programs, and i dont think school allows downlaoding hacking programs, only possibile way i see him doing it from anywhere, its either he has your e-mail password * change it * , he had your utils password, or you have a friend that has access on your forum that shares the account with him, dont trust anyone now'a'days.

I gave you the link. This person wants you to send him the money through the pay pal account he has in the message. You need to report that account and tell them what the situation is.

@tdbnz wrote:utilities password I will try and see if it works it been ages since I been on it but I will try



yeah should have done this long ago, i know we have already said to do this.

I think you are going to have to go to someone you know for help, a teacher, a parent, family member, or even call your local authorities. You need someone that can advise you on exactly how to go about reporting this.

Stick up for your self dont let this moron step all over you.

With all due respect, tdbnz, this is the real world. I've experienced far much worst. Back in about 2011, I was "served" with legal paper work for illegally using icons from iconarchive.com that I had not payed for. I was told to be in a court room in England about it on a particular Monday morning. I didn't go. I was young and had no clue what to do. So I simply got my team of administrators and worked closely with the current administration team of that time, which were Caihlem, Luky, and ,now my close friend, MrMario. You've just got to stand up to the guy and say this won't happen to your forum anymore and react immediately. There's no point in sitting back and watching the guy destroy your website.

If you disregard him and just keep correcting him, he will stop. But if you keep panicking, what's the point? Additionally, honestly, what would you lose? A few posts? Big deal. ForuMotion can fix anything this guy "messes up."

Stay encouraged, here at the 'Motion.

Hello,

So you just said that all admin have been hacked? My suggestion is to remove all of your current co admins for now, if you'll feel that the forum will be more secured this way, then after that, secure your founding account and make sure that you have a password that is really hard to guess.

Then do as what kirk and the other staffs' & members' advice in handling this issue.

Honestly, there is really no need to worry unless you have strong password, and so are your other staff members, as I've said, if you think it's safer to remove the other admins, then remove them.

Also, disable HTML as instructed, so no certain modified page will show when you enter your forum link.

haha, i went to the website and i alllready  thought of 5 ways to boot him off your website.. If you still have administraton panel, tell him " Pretend " that you payed him the 300$ to get him on the website...then, go to home page where it has the list of I.PS Keep refreshing repeatly..when your sure that the I.P is him...copy and paste it and put it in the I.P ban list.

That is pretty much what I have been thinking while following this topic. Even if its another admin they don't have the power to delete your forum or you. But it would still be wise to remove all admins for the time being. The only reason I really haven't said anything is because if the have somehow gained access to the founder account then they could delete it. However that's a two step process and they would also require access to the founder email. And even then, if he did go ahead and delete your forum, forumotion could help you recover it.

You should really follow the suggestions of the members above... Remove all admins for the time being (that includes this beastly. Honestly since you said he might be the hacker, I don't see why you still have him as an admin)... Remove html pages (meaning the homepage you have set, I would also just disable html in general)... Report this to PayPal... Also I know you said you have IP banned him... but have you considered the possibility that you have banned the wrong IP address? Perhaps look at his IP and run it against those of your other admins and then those of your other members. Yes its possible its the right one and he is simply using multiple locations, however (and maybe this is just me) that seems like a lot of trouble and for $300 (originally $150). Also I am honestly having trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that someone is actually 'hacking' your forum...

This has gone far enough.

Spyro Dragon: Please do not double post. You have received a warning for this.

JACKSTRAT1963: There is absolutely NO reason to start posting IP addresses in public and claim to 'reverse-hack' them as this is not helpful to the situation at hand. Furthermore, please do not double / triple post. Posts must be separated by 24 hours.

I will be removing some content from the above posts.


Please stay on topic from now on.

You have already been reminded by Base to stay in topic and only post if you have a solution for the problem that is helpful, support should only be done on the support sections too. If you continue to stay off-topic, you will be receiving a warning or even a ban.
