Solved Forum Going to be Potentially hacked

Post by Hired_Merc Thu Dec 26, 2013 8:40 pm

So my forum may potentially be hacked. I created a MMA forum with my friend who was apart of another website. My friend has been banned from their website, and he sent me a message saying the admin of that other website has been known to hack websites. I've got it so you have to put in your password on admin pannel and I've followed the FAQ to take maximum security possible. But is there anything else I should know? I have the IP, but apparently the guy can change/hide his IP very well. I'm just worried about the forum being hacked as it was only created this week. I have 24hr backup on, but it'll be annoying to lose all of todays content. Although that's much better than not being able to access the website. The link to website (IF needed) is MMAvoice .  net (Can't post links as haven't been a member for longer than a week). Thank you in advance!

Hello,

Provided that you have done all the safety precautions, your forum should be fine. In most cases, threats to "hack" are simply nothing more but empty threats.
