In progress My fourm was hacked.

Post by VDAheadadmin on January 10th 2014, 3:03 pm

Hello fourmotion, I have recently been hacked by a unknown source and have no control over how to get my things back.

The hacker has hacked into my threads and now some messages have giant pictures in place of the text content that should be there. I have tried editing it and deleting it but nothing seems to work it just stays there.

They also deleted a bunch of my graphics that were on the fourm. We do not have many ppl that have access to our copys so its hard for us to just replace it. This is a big problem and we would like some help to get us back to our former glory. Please and thank you, sincerely VDAheadadmin.

Hello,

First, do you still have access to your admin panel? If so, please do the following procedure:
Disable your HTML first(they might have used HTML for this):
Admin Panel > General > Messages & E-mails(configuration):
Allow HTML: No
> Save

I do have access and i just checked and it was already set to no, so that marks that part off. what else could they have done? and is there a way for the admins on here to use like a super admin panel and undo there actions?

The only way that your forum could have been hacked (?) is that the hacker gain access to an administrator's account.

Hello,

There is a possibility that they tried to inject an HTML/CSS code somewhere, the issue has already been reported. We need to wait for the pro administrator when she comes.
