Help with a hacker on my forum

Post by nike on August 15th 2010, 6:38 am

Hello,

I have a forum. Someone is hacking into the site and editing and posting using existing members' accounts. How can I view who edited the post? I am a admin on the forum. Please help. This is urgent.

Thank You.

It should be under the Security Logs, for the Moderator section.

That would only happen if someone accessed to an account of your other admins or moderators, I would suggest them to get a new and longer password to prevent this, other than that, you can see who are doing those actions on:
Admin panel > general > Security > Moderation

If your arew the admin, you should also be able to see who last posted on your forum via "view IP of poster"

Just simply go to their post and click it, all the information will pop up before you can say "forumotion"

did you accidently set that person as a admin?
useful tips:
ip should be displayed at each post, copy it and ban it soon as possible

is your post comes as 'H%$SUss\!!' instead of 'talk about this topic', that could be a bot attactk, virus. please disable bots in your forum...
