I just installed phpBB last night (version 2.0.16).
I added only easyMOD and the tabulated survery mod...
The forum seemed to be working great... everything was up and running...
When suddenly today, I get Unknown failed to open stream and Warning: (null) (): failed opening erros when attempting to access the forums.
I went into my ftp client to figure out what is going on and noticed that a good number of my files have had their permissions changed to 000 (instead of 644)..
I am unable to change the permissions on these files and when I open them, the are empty except for the following text:
upgrade this script. This script could be exploited
So... it seems like a hack to me.
*Note, as I am typing this, I got a hold of my hosting company. They are telling me that there is a "server wide hack" that got into the forums... They say I'm not the only one affected... BUT, This seems a little suspect to me since I just installed this board last night and just gave a public link to it at about 1am.
I want to know who could possibly get to my files and delete them like that...
Does anyone know what might be going on here?[/b]
Are my users gone and deleted?
