My board has been hacked, what do I do?
Please do the following before making any modifications to your board (this includes changing passwords, editing files, running the admin toolkit, etc.):
1) Save a copy of the files (simply create a local copy of the files on the server).
2) Save a copy of the database.
3) Save the server access logs for the time of the hack (they may be available in the 'logs' directory on the server, in your host's control panel or only by request directly from your host).
4) File a report in the incident tracker. Attach the items from steps 1-3 when you file the report or upload them to a secure location for the incident investigation team to download. Please do not start a new topic on the board, the proper place for incidents reports is the tracker.

Calm down, and stop bumping every other 3 minutes.
You say your friend hacked your installation. How did he get in, using your admin password that he knew?

If you continue to make incoherent replies we will not be able to assist you.

Now, can you explain how exactly this happened? Did you give your "friend" your FTP username/password or some other details and they logged in via your account and changed the account password?

As above, failure to comply with the rules and our requests for further information will not assist in our aiding you.

If you choose to begin giving coherent, useful replies, we will be able to help you. Until then, I am going to close this topic as we are getting nowhere and you are refusing to provide the information we need.

If you have any questions or have decided to provide us with the information you need, you are free to PM me, a moderator, or another Support Team member, and your topic will be unlocked.
