SMF/Joomla site possibly hacked

(1/4) > >>

Split from Forum got Hacked Need some advice please.

I am thinking along the same lines as my forum has just gone down. Perhaps a fresh install might be a way around it. this is showing at the moment

Strangly my joomla site is showing a 403 access denied message. The two are link by a 'bridge' My host is struggling to find the problem.

Would a fresh install of the forum and deleting the bridge be worth doing. If so what would be the best way to do this so I can use the current db. I presume this would install my boards and threads plus members. So members would not really notice the change.

Before you do that, check your Settings.php file. It might be corrupted. If it is, make a copy of the file Settings_bak.php and rename that copy Settings.php.

Will do as soon as I can thank you.. And sorry for hijacking the thread, but I thought it sounded a similar problem. If I have been hacked and they managed to change the theme therefore installing a roque .png image. Would this enable them to get to the joomla site via the bridge we have installed?

What versions were you using then?

The forum is 1.1.11 and joomla is 1.0.x (if I remember right) I am in the process of migrating to joomla 1. 5 then this happens :(
