In progress Hacked Forum ?

Post by MIO022 on September 1st 2011, 11:24 am

In the who-is-online section of my private forum all morning have been 7 guests who are listed as viewing the board forums without being logged in ?

Am I being hacked ?

Hi, this is not possible if you have set your permissions correctly. As long as you forbid guests from viewing any forums then they should not have access at all.

Maybe your site is getting popular. Wink

Have you checked the IP addresses reguarly to check that they're the same person?

I have disallowed guests to view the board, but they are still showing up as viewing individual forums Twisted Evil

It's not possible. If you want, can you provide me with your forum link so that I can see this for myself?

I wouldn't worry. If you set your permissions up right you are fine.

It will say that guests are viewing forums, but they are really seeing a blank page with a message saying they do not have permission to see the page.

The `viewing forums` message occurs when members have opened the link but not logged in.

This `guest` was viewing specific forums which they would only be able to see were they logged in.

How do I IP ban them please ?

Administration Panel>>User and Groups>>Users>>Ban Control>>Ban An IP Address

When they are viewing the forum get their IP address from the first page of the administration panel.

I have also many guests that are looking on the board forums all the time, so you don't have to worry, you are not being hacked
