    Let's see how long it lasts this time...

    Everyone be sure to thank Provid0r of thel3vel for hacking the forum again.. for no obvious reason whatsoever, just like the 3 times before that...

    ok seriously obviously there is a serious problem either with the server security or the security of this board. (vbulletin)

    my suggestion is get a white hat hacker to hack the board and figure out its vulnerabilities so we can fix them....makes sense to me.

    Were they using the same exploit all these times? I love the way their server could not quite cope with redirected traffic.

    We're open to any (honorable) forum member running a security scan against our forum. PM me, Dave or HaRRo with your results.

    The problem most likely lies within the vbulletin mods (addons).

    PS - The guys that hacked us read these threads...

    It just does not make any sense to me. They are either kids or just very bored. Why would anyone waste their time defacing a forum over and over again? Why not hack some basket instead and steal some credit card numbers or hijack a few paypal addys? Then they would at least be making a bit of money out of it.

    seeing that this board is vbulletin software 3.7.0.

    from some research the only exploit i can see on vbulletin side is this mod.

    mod:
    Code:
    http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=144869
    source:
    Code:
    http://www.cyber-warrior.org/Forum/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=32&TopicID=262531&PagePosition=&showActive=&ReturnPage=Active
    im not sure if we have that mod installed but i believe that could be the one if we do have that one.

    Home Page:
    I am adding virus protection to scan for trojans and viruses. Rackspace told me the hackers were getting in through vBulletin as the apache and everything else is pretty secure. We are going to add another two other security measures which I will mention once they are installed.

    Welcome back... hopefully the exploit can be found or something can be done to secure the site so this wont continue happening.
