    Update: I password protected the dirs, worked great! I also had my provider block the IP from the site.

    My basic tips:

    1. First, set up password protection on the admin folder (note about the page: you can probably use the command htpasswd, instead of the full path). Or, request it be set up by your host.
    2. Change your password.
    3. Open admin/config.php and set it so that no users can prune the admin log.

    How to prevent hacking of my forums??

    Hello again guys.

    I had a new user sign up and make a post telling me he will hack into my forums, and a few other nice comments. I got his / her ip right away and contacted the ISP. What else can I do to get him / her?

    How can I check of he did / tried anything, and how can I stop any attacks??

    Thanks!
