  • My Forum was hacked! Question:

    Hello All:
    Unfortunately, I am one of the few that has not upgraded to the newest version of vb2 even though I have had many opportunities (we are using 2.2.7...ugh). So finally we planned to make an upgrade in the coming weeks and, just our luck, we got hacked!

    Exactly what types of privledges do these hackers have? In terms of our admins accounts, here is what they did:
    -my account: changed password and email address
    -the other admin account: deleted it

    Could the hacker actually log into my account? Could he read my pms? If he wanted to, could he have posted as me?

    Yes Yes Yes, i suggest right now, if it is at all possible, restore a recent backup and upload default copys of the files that you have, to ensure that there is no way for him to regain access.
