I just installed the latest version at the time, during January, v 3.0.4. Haven't advertised the site at all as it's still being worked on. Today, I decided to work on the site and all of sudden, I have over 70,000 junk advertisement messages and over 8,000 users.
I can't believe someone would actually have time to register 8,000 fake users and post over 70,000 junk messages. This must of been automated somehow, which indicates huge hole in this version.
I've tried to prune the messages, but got an error:
There are some few legit posts, but I think it's best that I wipe and start over again with current lastest version. This is somewhat scary, is phpBB this easy to hack?Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 89653248) (tried to allocate 35 bytes) in /home/devildat/public_html/forum/includes/search/fulltext_native.php on line 1238.
Has anyone been hacked with current version 2.0.10? What security measure should I take to avoid this from happening?
