Do you always update them when new versions come out?
yes they are.. always updated. me myself as admin.. noone knows my password.
sorry for the pop ups lol.. its the cjb redirection service.. .co.nr is currently not accepting request till september.. So i temp use cjb.. btw.. How do i track what or who meddled with my forum after it was hacked?
Are you the only admin?
Did you use any other modifications?
I think the scripts you mentioned are quite highly secured, the only thing I can think of why it is being hacked...just could be someone guessing your passwords or you are using the same password elsewhere...
Okay.. Firstly.. the person meddled with the config.. then deleted all the boards. And my passwords were personal. I dont use the same password elsewhere. And I am the only administrator.
But weird.. he only meddled with the Edit Features and Options. But not the Edit Server Settings.. So i guess he is not using any admin account to enter it.
btw.. thx daniel.. i got this ip from the logs. 22.214.171.124
Perhaps u should be kept informed of the newest patch from SMF
or u can change to UBB/VBB
My SMF was the latest version. vBB? err.. i thought that it cannot be installed on frihost?
there are somethings u could do to avoid getting hacked always ,
1: change ur mysql pass (dont use the Frihostemail server)
2:set the config file to 444
3:check ur logs for the ip of the hackers , banned that ip from the forum ,
4:if u want u can change the location of the admin folder or rename it ,but this will be a big task ,so u will have to seek help from Smf
Well.. Thanks everyone for your help in telling me what to do.
