PostSubject: NEED HELP~ Site hacked couple questions ^^   Sun Mar 17, 2013 11:50 am

I don't know if this is the proper place to put this or not, I don't want to step on any toes, but the site I help Admin keeps getting hacked and personal information keeps being stolen.

This is getting pretty serious. I have contacted the Police, but of course they are pretty much worthless. We luckily backed up all of the site onto two others sites incase the others get hacked, but we can't hack back into our original site to get the IP of where ever this person is coming from, and we want too. We wanted to know if there is anyway to get into the site, if the forum creator had a way of doing that.

Also, is there a way to block everyone from seeing the new site without confirming the IP first? Or anyway to put the site on like, super-lock down? We're takinng the proper legal measures, but we want to protect the information we already have.

Thanks in advanced!

Moved to Connection Problems.
Please change the title of your topic, that is related to your question/issue, so that other users will be able to find their question/issue using the search engine.


Alright, well to start off you need to be the founder:

We tried the founder thing, resetting the password, when we do that, it says the administrator has banned sending new passwords, or something like that. Even for the founder.

You're right, I didn't. I misunderstood. Going to do that now. Thank You!

As for the second question though. Is there anyway to super lock down the site?

Well you can go to Admin Panel>General>Configuration and scroll down and check yes for both Forum on holiday or Forum under construction. If you need more info on these just click the "?" Near them and they will provide you with the information.

It may not do much but i hope it helps.


Besides this the only option is to simply shutdown or forum or to not work on it anymore.

That's the problem, the guy hacked into the founder profile, deleted everything, changed the password and banned everyone. Also left nasty degrading messages, telling all the members to kill themselves or disappear or whatever. So, we can't get into the admin panel. The forum is also over a year old so it was hard remembering original passwords used.

Shika, that will just put the forum under construction, wouldn't really help much.

As for you, The Ultimate Firebird, the founder of the forum has to provide the info to the Administrator, Sanket. Make sure to let the founder to PM him once he makes an account here:

This is Sanket: http://help.forumotion.com/u7065

Thanks anyway ^_^

I figured someone could help, if not, at least I tried. My main concern it protecting the new sites so this doesn't happen. I already have the legal stuff worked out.

To CJ11, I will take care of that, thank you!

I know it wouldn't do much but just stating possibilities.

If you know that it won't work, please refrain from posting erroneous answers.
