    Any additional ideas on how to lock this down? I have vbseo and other plugins. This spans latest 4 and 3.8 boards I run.
    Make sure there are no remote access users on your database. Make sure none of your database users can access from wildcard % hosts.

    There is no way for them to simply "Hit the postparsed table" unless there is a plugin allowing them access to the database, phpmyadmin or similar is not secure on the server or there are remote access users.

          This is all pretty basic website maintenance here and plain simple logic. If you can't follow the steps, you'll need to open a support ticket since you do have ticket support.

          You would need to check the MySQL users table in the mysql database. phpMyAdmin may show this if you're logging in as a root user. Otherwise ask your hosting provider or server administrator.

                The hackers also installed Skimlinks on my forum, because I certainly didn't install it.

                  vBShout just had an exploit found and patch released. You should be on version 6.0.4 by now.
                  https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...-Addon-vBShout

                  You need to be on 3.6.0 of vBSEO to prevent exploits in it.

                  You should be on vBAdvanced 4.1.3 to solve an exploit in it.

                  iBProArcade was recently quarantined on vBulletin.org due to an exploit and an update released. You need to make sure you're up to date here.

                  I don't know about your other addons.

                      You better check all the mods. In product manager see if the product name is a link, it should take you to their thread on vb.org or their homepage where you can check for the latest versions.

                        It is starting to look like VBSEO is the common product among us. I beginning to wonder if running vbseo is even worth it.

                        I also logged into phpmyadmin and found that every user had a wildcard setup as an acceptable host. I know I didn't set these up... I even had ANY user set to be able to connect from ANY host. So check out those mysql privileges, password protect your phpmyadmin directory.

                        Save yourself some headaches in the future by password protecting your admincp directory. At the very least they wouldn't have been able to send out the emails if this as done. On my forums they attempted to send the same email out to 150,000+ members over 100 times, all through the admincp. Luckily I had JUST signed up for Amazon SES and my account was limited to 10,000 emails a day.

                        Also, I was able to login to my admincp because I am a member of the administrator usergroup only as an additional user group. My admins who where set as a user of the Administrator usergroup by default, we had to change their passwords for them before they could login.

                          Please explain what you mean by the wildcard setup for "every user". I just want to make sure I'm understanding you right.

                          Anone else trace the problem to VBSEO? I did not have any "skim" plugin/product installed on my end but this is the 3rd time past 2 weeks this has happened.

                          Here is a strange note: the redirect does not happen to all forum categories, but only some. Further, if I turn off my forum (I'm still logged in as admin), the redirect disappears. Any idea about that?

                          This also happened yesterday and this is what I've done so far yesterday:

                          - changed database user/pw
                          - password protect admin directory (2 weeks ago), renamed admin directory (was already custom named)
                          - change my admin password
                          - change account password via cpanel
                          - apply about a dozen mod security rules
                          - enabled other security enhancements on php/apache (2 weeks ago) furthermore

                            I just got hit. I had vBSEO installed but not turned on.

                            I've turn off plugins, but still can't get into the site?

                            Any ideas?

                              1) Run Suspect File Diagnostics under Maintenance -> Diagnostics. Replace any files not containing the expected contents. Delete any files that are not part of vBulletin and that you can't identify as belonging to your addons. Or upload a new set of files.

                              2) Check the config.php for any suspicious code. It isn't checked by the suspect file diagnostic.

                              3) Search all templates for iframe tags. They should only appear in the following templates: bbcode_video, editor-ie.css, member.css, stylegenerator.css, vbcms.css, vbulletin.css, help_bbcodes, humanverify_recaptcha, search_common, and search_common_select_type

                              4) Check all your plugins for rogue include, require, include_once, or require_once code. All files should come from your server and be known to you.

                              5) Check your plugins for any base64 code. I recommend using against using any plugins or products that include base64 code in them. However some "lite" or branded addons will include this as a means to prevent you from cheating the author. You'll have to make a personal call on these if you use them. This is often a sign of a hacked site.

                              6) Make sure that your plugins do not include calls to exec(), system(), or pass_thru() or iframes. These are also often signs of a hacked site.

                              Query for step 4 and 5 -
                              SELECT title, phpcode, hookname, product FROM plugin WHERE phpcode LIKE '%base64%' OR phpcode LIKE '%exec%' OR phpcode LIKE '%system%' OR phpcode like '%pass_thru%' OR phpcode like '%iframe%';

                              7) Run this query: SELECT styleid, title, template FROM template WHERE template LIKE '%base64%' OR template LIKE '%exec%' OR template LIKE '%system%' OR template like '%pass_thru%' OR template like '%iframe%';

                              It checks the templates for compromising code.

                              8) Check .htaccess to make sure there are no redirects there.

                                In phpmyadmin, under privileges it shows a list of mysql users. When I setup a database user I choose to only let them connect via localhost. Somehow every database user has granted access to the database remotely, from any host.
