    I have been hacked while I was hosting my friends forum, they used 3.5.0 and it was hacked within 1 day.

    So share your times you have been hacked.

    a forum i had for over a year was hacked through an exploit in the shoutbox, had to change a few things and write some htaccess rules, the hacker managed to create 25k admin accounts so had to restore user base from a backup.

    i luckily had a small prog running on my server that notified me by email when any admin changes were made so i imanaged to stop any real damage within a few minutes of the first change, although had to take board offline for a few days to patch the holes.

    the same hacker also attacked a froum i use a lot ~(nulled-scriptz)~ i emailed the owner of that site with the hackers name address and email details and home telephone number (amazing what you can find out about people using an ip address)

    vb forum owners need to check all the scripts and mods they use to see if there are any exploits for them before installing

    I was just hacked :( not because of a vB problem, but because i was too trusting in others.
  7. You dont need an IP address to find alot of information about someone. Just use who is, or google lol.

    I've been DoSed many times, but not hacked.
    If you want to protect your website, you must think like a hacker ;)

    My church website got hacked close to ANZAC Day. Some Turkish Muslim did it, I never had access to the server so I never got to find out who. Not a vBulletin website though but it still got hacked.
