  • Back Door Hacker banned Members

    Somehow someone banned Members and it showed as me being the banner.

    I upgraded 3.7.1 to Patch Level 2 two days ago. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I am not sure how they did this, but I have changed my password for my Forum.

    This thread may need to be moved to Bug issues

    I have been overlooking the log in the AdminCP and am not finding any log of Members being Banned. So I do not think that a hacker made a backdoor entry now.

    All that happened yesterday was I modified a couple of user Group settings, and settings for the modification Chatbox EVO 0.4.0.

    Could there be a coding clash with updating user groups that thinks that a member was banned when a different modification to the user group was made?

      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.
