  • someone hacked my forum

    Hi there,

    Today I found someone logged to my form on my name as admin and posted so many bad topics.
    He did not delete or tried to log to the control panal

    I wounder if there is any problem with the new release of 3.7.2 version
    I scanned my computer for any trojan but found nothing

    any ideas guys on what happened or how he managed to do so or any ideas how to protect the forum??

    no one knows my password at all

    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.

      Are you sure it was "admin" and not some alternative that looks like "admin" but uses non-regular characters that look the same?
