A guest has accessed my 'admin' section!!

Post by yorkiegirl on November 30th 2009, 12:43 am

Can any one explain how a 'guest' is able to access a admin area that is only accessable to admin? It is an american IP address, we have 2 google bots watching, could this be them?? If so how can they have the rights to access? Getting concerned as I am scared that my forum is unsafe as I have had several abusive threads started.

Bots can only see what guest see's. It could have been you or the other admin's as some times it shows you or another person twice and the forum hasn't been updated to show just one person. I wouldn't worry about it as only people that have access to it can see it.

Hi Mr Mario
Only I & another ADMIN was logged on (we were talking in the phone) at the time where the 'guest' was in the Admin section' ?
It had an American IP address? I have had a few 'issues' with another rescue of which one is a 'computer' whizz!!!
I also then called the 2 other admin peeps that were not even looged on their computers at the time in question?
They were in the admin section when I asked 'Who they were'?
This is scary as it now appears that my site is not safe?

try going to admin panel>general>security and see if the guest has done something in the admin panel but i think it's impossible for guests to enter the admin panel?

Hello,

Guest can't access the admin panel. I think you've seen the guest online in admin panel home. It shows members/guests/bots that are online. Thats doesn't mean that they are accessing your admin panel.

Hi, I did not mean the Admin Panel. I meant a section where only myself & 3 other designated admin people 'should' only have access to discuss/move topics to etc?
At 1am this morning I put my forum in 'Under costruction' mode as I thought that 'closed' it to all, but this morning members are merrily on it?
How can I totally close it temporary to do things?

In under construction mode, you'll see some member online (if they are) but they can't actually see/access your forum at that time.

All members,
Under construction Mode may not work for all user/ ip's, so that means some users can still accessing your forum while other or you can't.

Thanks

I think you might be just getting a bit worked up over this.
Admins can access your area. Guests cannot. Although it looks as if they are, they are just seeing an error message eg, Sorry, this area cannot be accessed as your permissions do not permit you.

They are just looking at that, nothing else.

Or some times when you go on users profiles using the administrator page you can set them to an administrator user so you might want to look at all the users profiles and see if any one is an administrator

I am sorry if I do seem to be getting a bit worked up, but the only 4 people that can actually see the 'Admin' lounge are just us admin. If I log on as a 'normal member (with a basic member account) I cannot see it & also when I totally log off I cannot see it as a guest?
I am worried as there is a 'woman' that is hell bent on tryimg to destroy my rescue & she is 'very' clever with computers & has lots of IP addresses in several countries?

Guest can't enter the admin panel and what exactly is the woman doing on your forum?

What yorkiegirl is saying is that someone that does not have permission is seeing a section of the forum that is only for administrators.
