Heres the way to find him: Goto usergroup manager, then look at all the groups the users, additional users too. If its one too many just delete the user. Or download a copy of your database, and search for (if you have your usertitle for admin "administrator" search that in the database, youll sooner or later find him.)

Worked for me when my boards were getting punked by scripties.

send me his hotmail e-mail address to cyrusphantasm@gmail.com . I hate these type of internet punks and I take GREAT DELIGHT in taking these f**ks out!!!

I will track down everything about him (because I have legal access to MSN), and forward you his IP, real name, location, phone number and anything else tied to his system.

Then you can take legal action if he did anything destructive.. But NEVER GIVE UP YOUR VB ACCESS!!! I had this exact same thing happen to me 3 weeks ago on www.indie2industry.com except this person somehow actually gained access and tried nuking my templates, hell, I'm still fixing my board, look @ this page. This is the last one I have to figure out how to fix(since I'm not a coder).

http://www.indie2industry.com/forum/forum.php

But in return, I locked him out of his home computer (from info from his hotmail address), then reported him to my local FBI office, come to find out, he was local to my area AND have child porn and hacking tools on his computer.. NYS has a no tolerence policy against hackers.


SO BASICALLY, if this dude you're dealing with is tourmenting you via "HOTMAIL" then he's a TOTAL IDIOT... HOTMAIL/MSN is totally tracable on all levels.. Let me know if you need any assistance...

I hate destructive hackers :-(

Although i do understand your angre and frustration, i doubt what you are suggesting/offering here is legal. Please do not use or discuss illegal actions on vBulletin.org.

By the way. You know what would be cool? Just set up a "Custom PHP script" that will take the guy's IP. Just give the kid the link, and a face user/pass, end when he logins you will also get his IP, and you will also... scare him if you put some FBI page there

If you have photopost, photopost classifieds, or reviewpost, there is an exploit that was published a couple months ago. You should have an email from photopost.com telling you how to patch older versions. The exploit can be used to upload .php files to the web server by tricking photopost into thinking the file is legit.

Hi all,

First of all I'M a total newbie....joined a week back. Below is what I think about this discussion, its just my sweet little brainy thought over it..lol

i just went through the whole discussion, got to learn a lot..
But, I'd like to know something from the masters here !!

The person above "fordsho" describes his problem, he says that he has around 200000 members on his board. But did anyone noticed his Join Date and Post Counts ??

how can he ever have 200000 members in 3 months ??

If in any case, he's true then he must be using a nulled version of vBulletin since years that already contained some malicious program within itself that allowed the hacker to screw the board up OR he himself got lucky enough to get hands on the database of some big board (God knows how).

Please do reply to this and correct me if i'm going wrongg..

Thank You

Sounds like he gained access to an admin account and gave himself admin permissions. All you really have to do is go in and remove his admin rights, make every admin change their passwords and do scans on their computers. It would also be a good idea to change all of the site's passwords for cPanel, etc.

just getting back to this thread... I'm sorry.

I forgot to ask. Do you have any mods & add-ons you didn't get from here? he may have scripted himself access also.

Has he sent you an e-mail??? If so, he's TOAST!!! DON'T USE OUTLOOK!!
Go to www.mail2web.com

Login: yourname@yourdomain.com
password: your password

retrieve his message. In the bottom/left corner of the e-mail(s) it'll show his IP address.
FIRST, log into your server and block it from there.
THEN, go to your vbullletin admin cp, go to Banning Options, and ban the IP from there also. But DON'T BAN HIS E-MAIL!! If he contacts you again, you want to know from where so you can also block that IP.

This may also help.

On top of that. He wouldn't be able to post in the 'Big Board Discussions' since it's only for license uses.
