SMF 2 Beta 3 Hacked
« on: September 10, 2008, 02:22:21 AM »
Hello

I host a SMF 2 Beta 3 Forum and I found out it has been hacked, but I cannot find how to fix it yet.
The forum URL is hxxp:metalfaith.org/board/ [nonactive]

I will greatly appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks in advance for the help

You may wish to make a security report:

I would recommend that you restore a backup and then update that to SMF 2 Beta 4.0.

Probably both, it depends exactly what they hacked. Its probably better to restore a backup of everything, just in case. Although if you are sure that they didn't hack your database, only your files. Then it may be better to restore the files only.

I will try by restoring yesterday's backup of the whole site, but probbably it is done after the site has been hacked. Any other suggestions about the situation ?

OK
I actually fixed it
name of one of the topics with the database was replaced by redirection to a new URL. I updated forum to the latest version.

Do you have Ad management working on beta 4 ?
