Administration Hacked PLEASE HELP!!

Post by cjgagne »

I have phpBB version (2.0.17). Someone somehow hacked something so that when I click on the Administration Panel link shown at the bottom of the page you are redirected to of all place www.microsoft.com. How was this done and how can I fix it so that I can access the admin panel?

Thank you very much!

Hi cjgagne, and welcome to phpBB.com. :)

If your phpBB board was hacked, you may submit a report to the Incident Tracker.

This does not mean you are hacked at all. Could be a simple redirect issue, would do the same thing.

That of course was the first thing I checked. I the site was definitely hacked, there were other changes to the site that were made that are a non-phpBB issue.

You should upgrade to 2.0.19 ASAP anyway.
