Manz

they deleted 3k of posts and members

and so many topics and forums

admin please can you do something to bring it back or anything

please..

the only admin on my site helped create the forum but doesnt come on it much and hes a close friend he would never do something like that
LotharX

Are there any other admins besides yourself?
symon

Your forum has not been hacked.

Either you have had a weak password or your co admin has gone corrupt.

Obviously a Corrupt Admin

no it seriously has been hacked, i have heard of weedy a hacker before, none of the admins would even consider doing this, you could ask Joey on this forum (splash)

i have logged in as another admin on my site.. but banned the rest and disabled the board, and they deleted all 4 of my custom templates

please can you bring back the posts and members..
LotharX

What would he gain hacking your site?
Manz

now i cant get in to my forum at all

Rubbish lets face facts.

If i were a hacker would i bother to hack such a tiny forum ?????

No i would hack the support forum or howtodoit, why bother to go for a small forum when i can go straight for the top.

You have the link now i suggest you regain control of it, and delete all other admins
Manz

i dont have no link, they deleted all admins, all members and all forums

can admin do anything about this? please..

symon

the backup restore, how much of the posts + members will it bring back?
symon

Admin will advise more.

But normally to a certain point all members and post will be restored, normally less than a week.
myff admin

The backups are taken daily, so it would get you back to yesterday.

You need to figure the problem though, no myff forum has ever been "hacked", the only problems you can get are weak passwords and corrupt admins. Even with a weak password it is pretty unlikely for someone to break in, a rogue admin is much much more plausible.
myff admin

My records show though that they gained entry via the control panel, which had a pathetic password
Manz

is there a way they can hack in to it again?
symon

What do you think, having a stupid password is like leaving your car keys in the car door ?? any fool can come along and open it.

Think of a more difficult password
myff admin

You know how bad your password was, it might just as well have been "password" it was probably the second lamest password there is. So I am actually not at all happy with you posting "hacked" at all, you must have known from the start that this was your fault
Manz

im sorry, how long does it take to restore and when can it be done? does payment need to be first? and how much is it in 's ?
simcity



Manz says:

Manz says:
EDITED
Sim says:

Manz says:

Can admins confirm please that
1 this was not me,
and
2 you don't have my IP address logged as the person that did it

bet it was "qwerty"

Edited by symon

Please edit the swearing in future.
Manz

no it was "123456" and i have even hacked him on this forum
Test12

omg the person above me has hacked me!



please help

this is the real Manz ...
myff admin

So having used a lame password, and having had it spotted, you did not then change it

For the other question, yes payment needs to be made first.
Test12

how much is the payment in ?
symon

Use an online converter to see what the exchange rate is.
Test12

ok i did that and it comes out to 5
myff admin

that is right.
Test12

ok, where does the payment need to be made ?
myff admin

via paypal to paypal[at]myfreeforum.org



:EDIT:
naughty boss, putting the @ sign in there.
Test12

ok payment has been made
can you change password of control panel before restoring? and my admin password on the forum..
myff admin

The forum restore will take anything up to more than an hour. At which point you will need to quickly secure the forum by changing admin password.
myff admin

Forum is restored,
Nick(NR)

O.o..Dude.. how can you have your password set as 123456... =/...Maybe when I was like 5 I did that O.o?


Please don't waste peoples time with end of topic comments like this, it adds no support or help to the people seeking it, it also makes for more reading by admin who is trying to deal with this situation.
myff admin

Agreed, I think anyone reading this thread knows that a bit of a "slapping" has been given, so there is no benefit in adding to it.
