  • [Forum] My site got hacked, need help

    my site which is running 4.1.4 was hacked by a Russian IP address I am told.. I never did any of the software updates which is something i'll do now... Will this fix the issue?

    the username and password log in (was not encrypted) and did not allow to log in

    and some template changes where made or screwed up

    First I would sort the current version issues before upgrading.

    Try this list by Wayne - https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...=1#post2245651

    After you have sorted the site, then upgrade to 4.2.0 immediately .

      I did the upgrade to VB 4.2 and how can this happen... someone I banned / IP banned now has a new IP and is STILL in the admin control panel?

      Also this is a screenshot of the guy I have banned IP banned... and now he has a new IP which I banned again yet still in admin control panel?

        Have you checked the admincp logs to see if he is actually in the cp. Is he an ex admin?
