Solved HACKED

Post by KinK3H on April 28th 2011, 8:17 pm

Hey there! Smile
I got a bit of an issue with my forum being hacked. There is only one other administrator on the forums besides myself. His account was hacked into, and that password was changed. The hacker also changed the option of receiving emails for a new password so "i lost my password" doesn't work.
On top of this he disabled my admin panel so I can't do anything about this :S
The founder also doesn't remember his initial log in details to try to recover the forums through the utilities and I don't think back ups were ever made.
I just want to restore the forums back to normal Hem
Any help would be great!!
Thanks
