If the hacker had access to your ACP, then yes, he/she could have the email addresses of all your members.

ACP stands for "Administration Control Panel" or "Administration Panel". Wink

And anyway, if the other administrator can do certain thing, also hacker could.

i think i understood what you say.

the other admin as me was able to to see emails.
what the hacker did was to alter some members' proflies and then delete all the others.
i suppose that he took this members' email.is that right?
thank you

Use the back up tool(found on my sig with the guide) and just ban that 'hacker', keep the forum closed if needed.

the member which done the hack is my best friend so i am sure he was hacked. he changed his password. i thought to ban the IP but it would be meaningless because ip can easily changed.
the only thing i would like to know is if he was to copy all the emails in 2 hours. there are more than 750 members. and what i mean when i say copy is no copy and paste but copy the base.

thank you in advance

i am not sure how to say this.
i have 790 members. in which way could the hacker take the emails of all these accounts?
i mean; only by writing down on a paper one by one the accounts info(such as emails and usernames) or is there a way to copy to his computer all the accounts?

I don't know because I don't know how hacking is done and I'm not going to do it. Maybe by writing it in a paper? anyway, if they're using hotmails, those are the ones that are easy to hack according to my experience with my co-staff member from the past, the other ones like yahoo, etc. may not be hacked if they have complex passwords.

the emails are accounts that our university made for us.
my english are weak so i will try to give an example.
i don't mean to take control of the email account.
i mean to have something like that;
username:ecatodarcus
email:**********@******.com
so can he make a base with all the members usernames and all their email address?

thanks!

You are thinking to much about this. Yes, the hacker could have taken emails and yes there is a way for him to use copy+paste.

But he might not have even taken any emails.
