  • HaCKed By Red-D3v1L mR5@Hotmail.com

    Hi,

    I logged on to my site http://revlimit.co.in/forum today and saw the this message "HaCKed By Red-D3v1L mR5@Hotmail.com".

    I have been using SMF for the last 2 years and have not heard about a single forum getting hacked. I also found out that another website hosting vBulletin from my city was hacked too.

    Am I not supposed to be extremely angry ??

    What do I do now ??

    First, try running '..install/finalupgrade.php' to see if that fixes this. If it doesn't, fill out a support ticket at:

    http://members.vbulletin.com/members...ontactform.php

    Please include a complete description of the problem and be sure to include the login info to your Admin CP, phpMyAdmin and FTP in the 'Sensitive Data' field.

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

    http://www.vbulletin.com/go/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.

      oh no, not again!

      This Red Devil seems to be a big hacker. There are numerous boards I have seen been hacked by him recently.

            Use the support ticket system for something this urgent then. Do not bump your thread.

              P.S. You did not provide the URL to your forums or the requested phpMyAdmn info to your support ticket, and the forum URL set in your license is wrong.

                  I have provided the URL to my forum in the first post of this thread. This matches exactly with my License information.

                  I have also provided the server login details in the Sensitive data field and phpmyadmin is something that I access through cPanel ...

                    This guy didn't even sign up on the forum.

                      When you fill out a ticket, the person answering does not automatically have a link to this thread in their head. You need to provide the complete info in the ticket.

                      And no, you did not provide cPanel or phpMyAdmin. You provided FTP and the Admin CP login with no URL.

                      Rather than argue, please just provide the requested info so we can help.

                        How can someone hack a forum unless they have access to the ACP or FTP? I don't know how they can just type in your website, and then change your forum. I wish you can get some informtion on the guy so you can call the police. He must have figure out your password?

                          sorry ... I guess I'm just in a very emotional place with this whole thing ... I spent a lot of effort building this small community ...

                            Its not a person, its an automated script that goes around searching for insecure permissions servers. There are many many many ways to do this. The weak link might not have even been his domain, but another on the same server.

                              Well whatever it was, the vBulletin support team fixed it for me. Thumbs up to Steve Machol and Wayne Luke.

                              Thanks guys. I apologize once again for being a pain because I got very emotional about the whole thing.
