Solved Someone may be planning to hack my forum

Post by RevyIzumi on July 27th 2011, 2:52 am

Well, I'm not exactly sure where i should go with this, i don;t see any specific areas for reporting people or anything like that, so i decided to put it here. Basically, some dude got butt-hurt because i IP banned him from my forum, and banned his accounts because he liked talking trash and spreading lies about me. We have a small history, of him banning me from sites where he was staff on, trash talking me, ETC. But now he came to my site, and i IP banned him after an argument, and him being his cocky self. I afk'd for like 20 minutes, and came back to a PM in my box, with one of my staff members that was on another site of his. He supposedly had a message he wanted her to give me, so she copied the chatbox they spoke in, and sent it to me in a PM on my site.

Here is the talk:
Spoiler:

[01:57:55] Komakai Shikora has been disconnected on Wed Jul 27, 2011 1:57 am (session timeout)
[02:02:00] Komakai Shikora joined the chat on Wed Jul 27, 2011 2:02 am
[02:02:27] @ Niirochi Kuro : Tell her it will take me a few seconds to get set up.
[02:02:33] @ Niirochi Kuro : My VPN is down.
[02:02:39] @ Niirochi Kuro : I'll be right back.
[02:04:21] Komakai Shikora : yell her what
[02:05:07] @ Niirochi Kuro : Tell Revy that I'll be right back. My VPN is down.
[02:07:22] @ Niirochi Kuro : And copy-paste my next message exactly, please.
[02:07:30] Komakai Shikora : revy when off for
[02:07:36] Komakai Shikora : 20 mins
[02:07:44] @ Niirochi Kuro : Damn.
[02:07:50] @ Niirochi Kuro : But her banning me is my victory.
[02:07:54] Komakai Shikora : and she baned you from chat
[02:08:06] @ Niirochi Kuro : She probably left because I'm gonna hack her [Language].
[02:08:52] Komakai Shikora : ok
[02:09:04] @ Niirochi Kuro : I'm going to destroy that site. x:
[02:09:42] Komakai Shikora : why
[02:09:50] Komakai Shikora : may i ask
[02:10:10] @ Niirochi Kuro : Her only members were stolen from Ian's old site.
[02:10:24] @ Niirochi Kuro : She's pathetic and doesn't deserve the site.
[02:10:47] Komakai Shikora : what her real name
[02:11:00] @ Niirochi Kuro : Hell if I know.
[02:11:13] Komakai Shikora : ok
[02:15:55] @ Niirochi Kuro : Nevermind, it'll have to wait.
[02:16:04] @ Niirochi Kuro : I can't brute-force on this 3G network.
[02:16:10] @ Niirochi Kuro : Especially not across a VPN.
[02:16:15] Komakai Shikora : okay
[02:16:20] @ Niirochi Kuro : It's not fast enough.
[02:16:31] Komakai Shikora : whats vpn
[02:16:43] @ Niirochi Kuro : Virtual Proxy Network
[02:16:55] Komakai Shikora : oh
[02:17:00] @ Niirochi Kuro : Private* lol
[02:17:31] @ Niirochi Kuro : A virtual private network (VPN) is a mechanism for providing secure, reliable transport over Internet.The VPN uses authentication to deny access to unauthorized users, and encryption to prevent unauthorized users from reading the private network packets. The VPN can be used to send any kind of network traffic securely, including voice, video or data.
[02:17:39] @ Niirochi Kuro : It makes you virtually immune to IP bans.
[02:18:03] @ Niirochi Kuro : And just about anything else.
This conversation was taken from the chatbox on his site: http://soul-hazard.forumotion.com/forum

My site is: http://untoldstories.forumotion.com/

Now I'm not completely sure if anything can be done, but anything would help. I'm not afraid of him, but people like him just piss me off.

The names he goes by are Roxas, Niirochi, and his Forumotion account name is Pendo. Some of you may know him.

Protect from hacking:

Change your e-mail and admin password to something super strong

And he'll never gonna go through that Wink
And stay away from suspicious sites and links (To avoid cookie stealing)

Nope sorry, but our staff are willing to help in case a hacking occurs, but you can use the tools to perform a back up for your forum in case a hacking occurs and you can restore lost data via the back up system which can be found on my signature.
