In progress Admins on another forum are threatening to hack me

Post by Supurge on 29/10/2011, 04:56

The title says it all, they keep threatening to hack for no reason, and they say they can access my admin panel. I changed my password to 32 characters and have banned every one of their accounts and I.P. addresses. What do I do now? This isn't a forumotion forum, either. So that doesn't help.

Don't listen to threats. Forumotion forums are secure Wink
Threats don't mean anything. It's usually some angry little kid. If they had the power to do so, they would have done it. Razz

your wrong they are not secure but there is only 1 way they can "Deface" a forumotion website and thats throught the ACP. If its not a forumotion website and its a Mybb or IPB or vBulletin then they cannot "Hack" your website unless you give them cpanel access or ACP access.

It's prophpbb. And they keep fake ''making-up'' and apologizing, then getting mad again for no reason.

The only way they can 'hack', as they claim, your forum then they need access to your admin panel. The only way they can do that is to have access to an admin account. Don't do silly things such as giving your password away and you should be fine. Smile
