  • help me on a vbulletin forum

    im getting ims from a guy whos sayin hes gonna hack and is creatingg alts the admin is bairly ever on im a mod so cant do much can an owner or anyone help me?

    The guy who claims he's a "hacker" wouldn't go to all the trouble of creating accounts. If he truly knew how to hack, he would also most likely directly access the MySQL database, and not go through the board.

    Needless, if you are unsure, just ban all the new accounts and the IPs associated with them.

      If you can't keep up with the new accounts, (this has happened to us, alot) then maybe you could suggest to your admin that newly registered users have to be approved before they can post. That was the only way we could stop the spammers. They can make all the new accounts they want, but not use them. I'm also a mod, I know what this is like!

        Wrong forum. To get support have the license owner add your email address here:

        Steve Machol, former vBulletin Customer Support Manager (and NOT retired!)
        Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

        Steve Machol Photography
