forum "hacked"

Post by identityproof on September 30th 2010, 7:57 am

Yesterday, my forum was hacked. So called. Someone managed to figure out a staff team member password and actually went to delete posts (about 2000) and banned some members.

Help?

Well, try using the utilities to restore. Thats the only way.

This was not hacked, as you yourself said someone managed to figure a team member's password.

Be careful of whom you make staff, they could play double games too.

Exactly. I tried using the utilities. But to no avail. In fact, it made me have "new" PMs when i have already read them.

Well, so the points when the restore was made do not exactly match the time when the posts & members were deleted.
