PunBB hacked by Altan's


The forums at was using PunBB and it has been "Hacked By Altan's"

Deleting the folder and all files !

At, I see PunBB 1.2.7 has been released. Have you updated yet? : ...Today brings the release of PunBB 1.2.7, a minor bug and vulnerability fix...

Setting up 1.2.7 - WIP - 5pm SG

6pm - I thought that the content was still there and I could just upgrade to 1.2.7 ! - But Nope... only the "user" table existed with 40 records... - Sent email to the emails - Deleting the database

Sad !!!

Need time to think about the next steps...

9pm: Checking with the webhost whether they have a good backup...

It is a little consolation that the cause was not a weak password but something else because others have been hacked as well ! Forums / HACKED BY ALTAN (TODAY, NOW). Even Rickard says Hmm. I wish I knew the way in which he gained access.
