    No Way!!!

    DJ, that really sucks.

    Network Security is a pig part of what I do, its hard to secure public forums. General rule of thumb in regard to hackers is that if someone really wants in, they will get in.

    Just be careful.

    got back on the site to see if the screen was all messed up. And it is back to normal. Either the hacker got board and lifted it. Or theguys at V-Bulletin fixed. I hope they are able to track him. And give me his address so I can make a special trip to say hi!!

    See if you can get any details about what happened. PM me any information so it's not in the open forum.

    I can Help

    DJ,

    Do you have the IP address of the suspect? If you do I can tell you how to find information about who it belongs to.

    Let me know if I can help.

    A scary number of these "attacks" are just guys that figure out the admin password...
