Solved New owner !!! Have I been hacked?

Post by Paull April 14th 2021, 10:47 am

From Google Console:

New owner for https://ukengineforum.forumotion.com/

To the owner of https://ukengineforum.forumotion.com/,

Google has identified that deleted by skouliki has been added as an owner of https://ukengineforum.forumotion.com/.

Property owners can change critical settings that affect how Google Search interacts with your site. Ensure that only appropriate people have owner status, and that this role is revoked when it is no longer needed.


No idea who this is and certainly not my doing.
How do I fix this issue please - and stop it happening again?

Do not worry, it's only at the level of indexing your forum on Google, that will have done any admin of you forum If you do not have more admins in your forum then it has been done from Forumotion ,your forum is safe, quiet, it is done to adjust the Google settings of your forum, you can consult it by mail here webmaster@forumactif.com and they will give you all the information you need

The safest thing is that it has been, but for more information asks at the mail that I leave, and there you can ask for explanations that you have not been consulted, because you may not want your forum this in the search engines, Then I recommend you consult in that email and send the capture you have from google.
All the improvements for the forums make them when they think convenient, do them, but we have been done for a lot of forums, keep in mind that they administer the advertising that is included in Google in our forums.

Hello,

As Jucarese said, in all likelihood Google probably just mistook one of the recent updates as something else. Google's automated system is far from perfect when it comes to this stuff. Either way, you have nothing to worry about your forum is in good hands Wink.
