Forum has been hacked or Tinypic issue?

Post by Tara09 on February 15th 2011, 3:00 am

Hi huhohi

Was just wondering if someone can help us?

For about a week now, the strangest thing has been happening on our forum.

Members are reporting strange images coming up on the site. It was shortly after we had someone spamming the
shoutbox trying to get us to buy a domain etc.

Yesterday it happened alot and finally today I have seen it for myself.

Here is some examples -

http://my.jetscreenshot.com/3142/20110215-cjrk-118kb.jpg

this one is a beauty (came up just now).....

http://my.jetscreenshot.com/3142/20110215-aqu7-104kb.jpg

and another....

http://i700.photobucket.com/albums/ww6/Akiranika/Strangepic.png

I looked in my admin section and it surely seems like that link has been replaced, although
I cant find where that huge image has come from.....

example.....
http://my.jetscreenshot.com/3142/20110215-5bfy-77kb.jpg

I was thinking it may be a tinypic issue?

Any suggestions?

Our forum -

edit - I just noticed a 'Guest' viewing the portal. I have disabled it and these images have now gone.

The other thing, and this is the reason I was thinking it was tinypic, is I have different 2 images with the
same link ie

homebutton
http://i40.tinypic.com/kbu987.jpg

the guy from the above pic

sorry, I just checked the markup link and it seems it didnt capture it....fixed the link with different screenshot

Sorry about my messy post Sad

It's tinypic issuse. I had it on my forum aswell. You should rehost your pictures to some other image hosting, like servimg.com, imageshack.us or by your own choice Smile

Tinypic is the one I am having problems with in the first place Very Happy

What about imgur.com? This one is becoming quite popular. I know some sites have problems with images
showing up, but I use this host for the graphics battles and everything else on the site and am having no
issues so far. The only reason tinypic was used is because I didnt put those ones up originally Smile

Well i personally use tinypic.com with a registered account & i have never faced a problem ever. Also, i am aware that when images are not from a registered account, they are deleted by tinypic.com after a certain time. So i would still suggest tinypic.com with a registered account.
