      First you need to follow our advisory about deleting the install folder off your forums.

      Then please read the following two blog posts:

        That image doesn't provide enough information. That screen on phpMyadmin does not show enough information. You need to edit each row and view all the content manually.

          I have been able to fix some of the problems following the guides mentioned above but there is one thing which i am still unable to fix. The hacker is again and again changing email and hence password for the admin user of my forum. I have plugins disabled right now but he is still able to change it. Can someone point me out the particular thing in the cleanup which I am missing?

          PS: I have followed almost all the things mentioned in the guide.

            Any other software installed on the server?

            vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

              Wordpress, but it is working fine, the attack happened to vbulletin only because I had /install/ folder in the server at that time.

                  Without more information it's difficult to suggest very much.

                  I'd suggest raising a support ticket so we can have a look:

                  Please include a link to this topic.
                  Also please include (in the Sensitive Data field) the following:

                  FTP login
                  phpMyAdmin login
