Solved How Do I Handle a Hacker?

Post by LordBalthazar on June 8th 2011, 9:34 am

Before I start, I'd like to request something of this topic. If it recieves good feedback then Id like it to be a reminder to other users who may be in danger.

My forum,, has been attacked from the inside. A user cracked the Admin panel and started deleting profiles. He now says that if I do not give him ownership of the site, he'll come back and cause even more damage. I've banned him and deleted his profile completely but I fear he'll keep his word and crack us again.

My question is: How do we prepare for another attack and avoid such attacks in the future?

This topic should help out

All you can really do is to just ignore him, and restore the site.

If you have his IP Address, you can ban it via: Admin panel >> Users & Groups > Ban Control > IP Ban.
