Hacked Forum!

Post by ChibiBug on July 4th 2011, 6:42 pm

Someone hacked and stole my forum while I was gone! I have no idea when or how it happened.

Link: http://pinkpony.forumj.biz/ (my hacked forum).

Can anyone help me? Can someone delete this forum?

log-in, back up the forum to a previous date, and password change.

The information I am entering is not working. I don't know whether I'm entering the login or password incorrectly.

You have to use the password and email that you use to create your forum, not the ones that you use to log onto the forum (unless they are the same).


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.
Never post your email in public.

I tried. I have no idea why it's not working... Maybe I've forgotten my password. Is there any other way to delete that forum?

Have you tried to log onto the forum itself?

Which is it? Can you log in or not?

I can't login! If I could, I could handle the problem myself.

Thanks.

This link might help with your login situation: http://help.forumotion.com/t89289-for-founders-who-lost-their-passwords

P.S. When you use the Utilities, try using the forum address instead of your email address. If it does not work, then you know it is the password that is wrong.

No, not yet. I will update this thread if and when I am able to solve it. I sent a request for another password. I hope it helps.
