Hello,

What you have is a spammer not a hacker. Spammer create a new accounts on forums, most if the time dead forums and just spam links and stuff since there is no one there to stop them.

Have you tried logging in with your admin account?

it is rare in the forums without activity should there be no new records, when a forum has no activity, it does not allow new registrations, and only the administrator can activate them,until the administrator re-opens them and change the way you activate the accounts

That is not 100% true the forum has topic it installed on it if you have this on your forum then members can make an account on that and the account is Okayed right away unless you change the settings in your ACP and if the founder has gave up the forum and not changed the settings then this will just let members make an account and use the forum.

@draven1980 if you want this forum deleted you can do it in 2 ways

You can log in your forum and delete this your self but if you have forgot your username and password then you can send me a PM with your Email address and username along with the URL of your forum and i will be happy to send you a new password

once you have your new password you can log in and delete the site your self.

If that don't work then i can ask for your forum to be deleted for you but this will only work if your data gave fits our tools and you can not get in your forum at all.

but my advice is to PM me and get a new password and do it your self.

Kind regards

APE.

Also that security measure wasn't implemented until 2015, the forum has been dead since 2014, so the spammer could have registered before that security measure was implented. Either way, it simply looks like a spammer from I see by looking at the forum.
