  • Vbulletin hacked, issue after upgrading to Patched version

    Hello,

    As I have mentioned in another topic, I decided tough to open one of my own. On 1 from 4 forums, after upgrading I am having this issue.
    Can you please assist?

    Thanks for creating a new topic for your issue. This is the preferred method of obtaining support. Posting in another topic will prevent us from providing accurate support.

    The video doesn't really provide any valuable information on how to resolve your problem. It just shows a problem. In order for us to understand, you will need to answer the same questions that are always asked for support issues. They are outlines in this topic - https://forum.vbulletin.com/forum/vb...obtain-support

    In addition to this, your sites need to be put into Debug Mode so we can see the actual error. Internal Server Error is as generic an error as possible.

      L.E. I think I have managed to fix this issue. It was caused by the fact that I have also uninstalled tapatalk from the forum but haven`t deleted the /tapatalk/ folder from the /core/packages/ so I think the issue has been fixed. I will let you know if my forums get hacked again.

        Leaving the Packages directory for an addon can cause problems. Most packages automatically install when the site is loaded.

          My vb 5 was hacked with weird .php "phishing" files injected into the forums/logs folder. I had to empty and delete its contents entirely before my host would allow access to the site again.

          I downloaded the .php files and AVAST immediately moved half of them into my virus chest so they must have been infected.

          Was running latest patch 2 of vb 5.5.4

          I have now changed both my cpanel and WHM passwords.

            This can happen if you didn't replace all vBulletin files when you noticed the original intrusion. By replace, I mean delete the contents of your existing vBulletin directory and replace it with new files. If you store uploads in the file system, you'll need to inspect all directories to make sure they do not have suspect files.
