  • index.zip uploaded

    I'm not sure how it happened, but yesterday someone uploaded a file into my forum directory named index.zip and unzipped the file to install an index.htm file that was some hacker defacing page. I was running v3.0.3 but have since upgraded to v3.0.7. What I am trying to figure out is if this is a vBulletin thing or something else that I might need to protect against in another way.

    Thanks.

    There is no way I know of for someone to upload a file to your forum directory through a hole in vB. I think your server or your account on that server has been compromised. I suggest contacting your host and changing your account password.
