  • Forums Keeps Getting Hacked

    Hi

    We have a real problem with a hacker that keeps inserting trojan launching code into the stylesheets in the DB (an iframe). We have checked the server security and it is fine, no root kits nothing and yet this keeps happening. We are running the latest version of VB also.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

      I disabled all plugins that were acrive, there were about 3 I think and the only other thing is we have the left navbar in forum hack installed but I cant see that doing anything.

        Please see this thread on how to make your vBulletin more secure:

        If you are still being hacked after doing all of this, then they are most likely doing this by accessing your server. You need to contact your host about this.

          Yes everything is as it should be, checked against that list. As I sau the only 'hack' that has been added is a left navbar hack but I can not see how that would affect this. The server has been checked and cross checked for unauthorised access/rootkits etc.

            If you really did everything on that list then it's almost certainly your server or hosting account that is being hacked.
