There are no known exploits for 1.1 rc3...
It would mean he needed a way to upload a script were it wasn't filtered. SMF filters what is uploaded. So a script can not be ran. Or some way to edit scripts on your site..

Do you run any mods?
I see you also run phpnuke.. You run the latest of that? with security holes patched.

--edit--
well you dont run phpnuke but you run other scripts like a calendar.. make sure those are updated.

Truth me, I am a security consultant, All my scripts are upto date and patched.  I am reviewing the logs to find out how he got in.  Once I figure that out, then I will know if it is a hole in SMF or a hole in one of my scripts, but by the looks of it so far it is SMF

If you belive its a security hole in rc3 use submit this form

This is totally off topic, but shouldn't someone as a security consultant be opposed to running a site which is reported to be a known distribution point of adware and trojans? Granted it was based of a single download on your site, but still, makes one wonder.
Whoops! Did i break that?

Is there a way to manually edit the changes from 1.1 rc2? We run a heavily modded board.
You can however update 1.1 RC2 to 1.1 RC2-2 by applying the modifications in the Package Manager. Note that this is just a onetime courtesy that will only update your forum security-wise and will not fix any of the other bugs that were fixed in 1.1 RC3.

I´m Glad to know this, Thanks

I Think I´ll wait for 1.1 final, my board is amazing with RC2 now  ;D

Yap... same as I. :)

I've installed a basic test of the board and it seems to be running fine, which as RC1 and older versions didn't and RC2 was a little odd this is good news (all Mod Security issues)

My licence for IPB runs out in January, will the 1.1 final be around by then?

yes i know there probably isn't an answer as there ar a lot of facters, I'm just hopefull.

Most likley yes. But always there is never a set date for releases. It'll just be a scramble when it is released. ;)

It looks he edited your index.php or Settings.php file.

You may delete Settings.php, then rename Settings_bak.php to Settings.php.

I had this problem as well where my setting.php file was overwritten with a HTML page from a turkish hacking group.  Still haven't figured out how exactly it happened.  I've since moved the site and changed the permissions on the settings file.  It is a pain to have to change it manually now, but I guess that is the price I pay until I can figure out what happened exactly.

Any idea how long before this version will be made Final release?

That is exactly what happened to me, and I am still looking for the problem, they also not sure how the heck they did it, the screwed with my log files also.

I checked a hacker thread and they hit alot of sites running the SMF forum.

Okay,

This is where it gets serious. We are now using a CVS version of SMF 1.1. This means that we are now one of the few forums that help make sure that SMF is more stable.
... etc
