Did our admin get hacked?

In progress Did our admin get hacked?

Post by Richardr on June 28th 2011, 12:13 pm

We noticed our admin was logged in, (for about ten minutes), but it wasn't us. The admin panel located it as in France, so we thought it might just be a forumotion mod bot, and not sinister. But our concern is we have never seen this before. Is there some new procedure forumotion uses, or are we hacked?

Thanks.

Hello,

Have you already talked to your administrator personally about this problem? Has he/she said your forum was hacked?

Russel, I'd appreciate your opinion. I can send full IP details of the intruder to you via PM if that would help.

As the title asks "Did our admin get hacked?" So it means, you are part of administration team or youre not the founder. Because you're telling the unsureness of the logging in of your admin if that is really your admin. Please explain your question further.

I KNOW it wasn't our admin because, as I said, I AM the admin.

So either we got hacked, or forumotion has some access to our admin. We are not sure which, hence our question.

You are meaning you are admin of your forum, but not the founder right?

Nope, forumotion does not use the admin account of your forum.

I am both. No one involved in our forum was responsible for this.

Nope, forumotion does not use the admin account of your forum.
So you think it was a hacker, not forumotion?

Ahh, you so you are both. I got your point. Anyway, as i was logging into my forum before with my Founder account, then log out, then log in another admin account, the founder account will not immediately be disconnected. Sometimes it happened. But if you not satisfied with this, i would highly suggest to change your founder password.

That isn't what happened in our case.

Thanks for the advice.

But do you still access your founder account? If yes then, you should change your password immediately Smile

Yes, that's probably the best option. Also, please read this for precautions against being hacked: http://help.forumotion.com/t75418-my-forum-was-hacked
