  • Myanmar Muslim Cyber Force - site hacked

    As per

    I have been travelling with only an iPad.. Got the email about deleteing the install folder but assumed I would be lucky for a week, how wrong was that.. Sites been hacked.

    Since then I have restored a full file backup.. Deleted the created admins.. Made sure the plugin.php is clean.. Deleted install file.. Upgraded to latest 4.2.1 today.. Changed all passwords..

    and still they are back in.. This is the 3rd time they have defaced the site in 24h ??

    I am out of ideas on what to do now.. Having done a full file restore with clean pre hacked files and deleted the admins and changed passwords.. What else can I do to make it secure ??

    Delete the entire install folder, not just the install.php file.

          Having removed the admins.. And reverted the entire filesystem to a backup.. And removed the install folder and updated to latest version..

          How the hell are they getting back in.. There cant be any file hooks in a reverted filesystem .

            Hooks are in the database, not the file system. What if anything do you have listed under the vBulletin Product, in the PLUGIN manager?

                Looking for someone willing to work on cleaning this up.. $$

                  I don't think you have to remove any posts, have you checked your plugins as Zachery suggested? If all changes made by hackers are inside vBulletin database and directory, it shouldn't be hard to clean up.
