The forum was hacked. They just replaced my two main index files with their own. I had to restore back to last night's backup (I think). I've rebuilt some forum files. I hope it's okay. Other than recently missing posts, please let me know of any irregularities.

The bigger picture, I am down rev on the forum and photo post software due to mods I've made. It is not an easy upgrade process. In order to prevent this from happening again, I have to upgrade. Not sure when I'll get to it, time is very tight right now. Maybe since they've hacked me once, they'll leave me alone for a few days. We'll see. I'll need to take the forum down for at least a weekend to do the upgrade.

Sorry about this.

Teresa

Hopefully the hackers will leave the forum alone now. But if they don't and you need to do the upgrade, I am sure everyone will understand.

Sorry to hear you were hacked. It sounds like some of the problems phpBB's have had. Check your website for uploaded scripts. Make sure you password protect the admin area.

Oh, I'm so sorry Teresa! Whoever did this should realize that there is nothing good coming from his/her actions. It's just someone with time to burn, I'll guess. I hope that you aren't bothered again.

a computer geek.

Hey now pooh, I took a tiny bit of offense to that because I am a "computer geek" but I don't go around hacking people.
