Forum hacked! Please help!

Post by Kajin »

This morning, a user registerd on my forum, and every topic he posted in either gave a 404 pop-up error. Then, suddenly , all my moderators found themselves banned. In addition, the hacker deleted all the banned IPs and Names from the ban list (thouigh strangely enough, left all the banned emails) :(

I am running phpbb 2.0.20. Can anyone help me?

Do you still have access to your database?

If so you should be able to delete any banned IPs and regain access to your board.

Unfortunatly, accessing the board isn't the problem. The problem is that after a mod got back in and fixed the first problem for us (first problem being that we were all suddenly IP banned), all the other banned IPs were deleted by the hacker.
