I caught somone messing with the administrative files of this board today. They came from an AOL address that I logged and will investigate.

I added one more level of security to the board this morning. Please let me know if you see any sudden problems.

It's a good thing that you caught this hacker before any real damage was done. No problem with more security....it has to be done!

Hi,

Good you caught one of them Jesse. The Canadian CHA BBS was hacked not long ago and they have some people under investigation via the RCMP. The way I understand it, it is like you said, people who know how to hack these type of boards. They deleted the BBS database.

They might be able to tell you if it is the same people doing the hacking.

Just a thought.

Best!

Sir...

Do you know if any other boards are having problems?

Here are some sites that use the same software as we do, that have been hacked recently!

http://lofresco.com/phpBB2/index.php - Back up now and restored.
http://ldg.lokrin.net/ - Hacked 3 times over the past few weeks.
http://www.thereeflounge.com/phpbb/index.php - Back up now.
http://www.forum-talk.com/ - Message left by the hacker.

There were hundreds of hacked sites reported at phpbb.com. We were not alone but hopefully we are OK for now.

FYI
