In progress My forum is being threaten!!!

Post by JohnathanCafu on November 7th 2016, 5:35 pm

Hello. So im a moderator of this forum http://tnwrestling.forums-free.info/ and our forum has been threatened by the users of another forum. They say that they will hack us and we will be gone soon. I'm a little bit worried. Is there any way they can do something to us? I dont think that they got an account with admin panel from our forum but still - I'm worried.

Hi, I'm not FM staff but I know how you feel, my suggestion is for you to have all of you staff members, including the owner, change their passwords to something really complicated that they can remember and also have the admins make i't so you have to sign in again to access the admin panel. Unless they actually have the skills to hack a forum(which I highly doubt) then the only way for them to "hack" is by figuring out an admin's password or already having access to it by being an admin themselves on your forum. Try to not let them know you're scared and worried, they most likely can't do anything.

Hello,

Do you yourself have access to the ACP? How are the users communicating with you via the forum using topics?

Thanks,
ChanelW :rose:
