We were hacked.

Now, don't let this alarm you. No damage was done.

The problem has been resolved.

As a note though, the shoutbox will stay offline until I can get it more secure (and make sure it isn't on EVERY page)

Who/what was responsible for it?

And how did they do it? (I'd be willing to help "patch" the shoutbox.... I'm guessing they injected SQL thru it..?)

edit: You should use a regular expression to remove stuff that starts with ibf_ from the shoutbox, preventing the database from being touched.

No... Zircon explained it, but at length.

Basically, this version is now a "pure" Invision 1.3 Final..

Actually, I deleted all the old skins and reuploaded everything.

That is the reason for the switch back to the default skin.

Xfir: The skin sets are still stored in the database.. Should I go in and delete them out?

Also, make sure you re-CHMOD'ed the uploads/ and html/emoticons/ folders to 777.

I hate it when people do stupid things like that.  Hacking is okay the way it is being used in our case, because we just want to try to keep this game alive.  When you hack a forum or a site, that's just wrong.

Yeah, all you gotta do is stop SQL injection.....

(What you could do, is use eregi() or something to remove words like UPDATE, DELETE, INSERT, DROP, CREATE, etc.

Btw I consider OP2 "hacking" more "cracking" and "reversing" than hacking... Those words define it better.

As you can see, the shoutbox is back.. there currently isn't a fader though.. I don't plan on adding one..

Also, I plan to take the forum down again on Sunday for another modification.
