seems my password was guessed and a spammer logged on... I haven't been on the site for years, but got an email notification due to your reply.

Anyway, I'll change my password to something less obvious that the spammers will have a harder time guessing!

That stinks. Sorry to hear.

But now that you edited my joke isn't even remotely funny... When I figured I had a remote chance of some good chuckles before. :lol:

Blue Nose, stick around. There's not many Nova Scotianers here.

The IP in the first post was 213.182.197.20. It is from Latvia. That means someone did indeed hack your account. Everyone needs to change their password to something more difficult.

It looks like when I made it so scripts won't work, they would do it manually. Then since it gets deleted so fast, someone decided to use the account of another user. Probably thinking that it would not get deleted because we would not suspect an established member.

Hacking seems unlikely, but it is more likely than Blue_nose posting spam through a Latvian proxy server.

IronMan,

I recommend upgrading the phpBB Version to the Current phpBB3. I have a few sites still left on phpBB2, but I am in the process of upgrading them.

phpBB2 has reached the End of Life (EOL) or nearly reached EOL, and the phpBB3 is more secure.

That being said, given this latest hack, even a software upgrade will not stop dictionary attack on a known users password.

That may be, but it's not my site. I'd have to make sure it's compatible with the mods too. So James would have to be cool with it and it can't be time consuming. I'm a volunteer after all.
