In progress How to remove pornographic picture that a hacker has made?

Post by Penjejak Awan on June 11th 2011, 6:08 am

The problem happened today is that my forum got reported for sexual/pornographic content.

When my senior friend checked what was wrong, he tried registering a new account in our forum and told me that a picture of a half-naked woman was displayed when a user is going to register.

My solution was: putting the forum into maintenance mode, and then back into functioning mode (for members to access the forum normally).

How to remove it shall it happens again? I still haven't found where to correct the problem in case the problem repeats itself. And actually where is the Admin options to handle this matter?

Thank you in advance.

If thats your forum i did not see anything while registering.

Moreover, if you are just worried about the abuse report thats in your admin panel. Someone might have falsely sent it to you. You should not worry, if you have not seen anything illegal.

Yes, that is my forum. Most of the members are Malaysians and are not fluent in English.

How does the report get falsely sent to my forum? If the report was about the third-party advertisements on the forum site (which aren't made by me), is it also a possibility of the report being made towards my forum?

Basically, that report was sent using the 'Report an abuse' feature at the bottom of every page on your forum. Those kind of reports are not sent to ForuMotion, but are used to warn the administrator(s) that the content on their forum is breaking the TOS. If it's a faulty report then simply move it to 'Done abuses'. Wink

Still having the problem. What is it that they meant by pornographic content?
I did not have anything pornographic on the site, this is really getting me restless.

About the claims of us copying another forum, the Admin of the other forum (which is http://www.wiratunggallegacy.com ) said we are going to be co-operating in the comic fanbase where our forum is for Storm Riders/Storm Warriors series and theirs is for Warlord/Sea Tiger series, so I don't understand why the claim is said so? I'll contact their Admin as well, since he said we're going to co-operate.

Here is the latest report that we got:

To: forumotion.com administration

I'm one of the most active user of http://storm-riders.forumotion.com/

This site has fully harm and try to copy our forum. We also noted that some of it's content was directly taken/copy from our site and they have made just a little modification. As what I know, it's strongly prohibited for anyone to take copy rights of the things which is belong to someone. In this case, we found that this site have violate our copy right by taking some of our information without our permission. It has clearly have been addressed at the forumotion.com Terms of service regarding the copy right as follow:

Respect of the copyrights and brands
"The whole of the elements that you see, or read on this website is protected by the legislation about copyright. In any case, you cannot use, distribute, copy, reproduce, modify, alter or transmit the site or elements of the site, such as texts, images without having previously gotten a written permission of the company. The brands and logos which appear on the site, are owned by the company and all rights reserved. None right or license could be allotted on any of these elements without any written permission from the company or the third party who holds rights on the brand or logo which appear on the site. The company reserves the right to prosecute any patent infringement of his ownership, in front of a law court.
Modification of the Terms of service"


and this site have clearly against this TOS. We have warn this site may times. They said that they will never do it again. But seems they always repeating theirs mistake on the copy right.

Moreover, the worst things is they use the comics/this site to cover their illegal activities such as a transit of sexual and pornographic content. As a supporter for the http://storm-riders.forumotion.com/ we are fully aware on this unhealthy activities. We felt very sad, mad and frustrated because our beloved comics (storm rider) have been used wrongly.

as what have been quoted from forumotion.com Terms of service as follow:

Illicit contents
"Forums that does welcome or promote warez, piracy, hacking, cracking, spamming, attacks against networks or servers, pornography, racial hatred, crimes against humanity, inappropriate activities on the servers, or any other actions which violate any applicable laws, aren't allowed. Any forum which contains texts, links, pictures, animations, videos or any other content recognized as illegal will be deleted without notice or warning. Forumotion.com reserves the right to delete any accounts or forums considered like not conform to the rules quoted here or specified in Forumotion.com or in the international website rules according to the international internet law. Any illegal content or act can or would be reported to the concerned services and prosecuted."

Moe bad, they seem very wise to hide their activities by deleting their link and post after one/every transaction.

as a responsible user with respect to the forumotion.com's TOS. I really hope you'll take an firm and concert action against this site.

Thank you

Reports are made by any user. Why to worry if it does not mean anything & are false? Just ignore. Simple.

I got a reply, someone said we are going to be copying the Dice Roll system of their forum!

They don't know that the Dice Roll system is default in every forumotion forums, it depends on the Admins whether to activate the Dice Roll system or not.

If they said my forum copied the Player vs Player system from their forum, they haven't seen other forums that implemented the same system: the forums that existed WAYYYYY EARLIER than the existence of their forum before.

But it's getting ridiculous to tell every detail of Admin work to those who haven't experienced becoming an Admin on forumotion boards, so now: how to get the message across about this matter (to these people)?

I'll be online on Saturday next week due to the end of school holidays (which is today) so I'll check back this issue by next week, hopefully I can get to use the internet at that time. Thank you in advance.

The founder of the forum can delete it from the administration panel. I just visited the forum. It looks like someone has gain access to the administration panel and changed some things, like the banner. This forum really needs to be check.
