  • [Answered] Hacker uploaded blog entry now admin can't see recent blog entries.

    I had a hacker last night create an account and upload some weird fashion designer stuff through a blog entry. I quickly deleted his account but I noticed the blog has a fatal error for the admin when I click on the "Blogs" tab on my website and the Entries/Last 24 Hours post count link.

    When I log out I don't receive this error. I'm not sure if other members with account are geting the same thing but I'm looking for help and a fix. I also notice that even though I deleted the member I can see his blog entry embedded in the jumbled scribble on the Blogs and recent tabs.

    What could be the problem and how do I fix this?

    I'm using vbulletin 4.2.

    Go into your admincp > vBulletin Blog > Blog Entries and list the entries from last night and delete them.

      This happened to me also. I doubt it was a hacker but still... I thought that by deleting the blog entry from the blog page itself would remove it from the database. It did not and I got the "fatal error" message also. Deleting from the Admin CP worked and fixed everything but it seems this is somehow a flaw. Why isn't the entry deleted from the database when it is deleted from the blog page?

        You should delete these entries from the admincp directly and this error will not occur however I see what you mean, logic says if we delete it no matter how it should be "deleted" entirely but for now until we see a change make a note to delete via admincp only .

            I deleted the member and it caused the same issue. Thanks for your help Michael Miller.

                Is this bug still present? I thought it was fixed, or is that 4.2.1?
