    Why don't you just disable ALL other Mod, Admin accounts.
    or just turn the board "Offline" through the Administrative control panel.
    Then sort through the site logs, and you'll most likely catch the person..

    cheers

    I'll side with Egaladeist and add that you might want to learn to speak english instead of that eubonics bullshit you're spewing out. You're posting on a security forum, not sending a text message via cellphone to your loser friends.

    He is wearing an e-helmet. And it will change the way you think and live forever. Those are his electronic emotions. It allows him to conserve his body's energy.

    Is that a fancy way of describing his tin foil hat?

    IF you are admin on the site, when you access the admin pages, you will see who has been doing what, and when they did it ......................

    then you just ban their ass .......

    It's not rocket science ............

    Hello, and welcome to the latest episode of: "Moderator in a suitcase"

    You will all be glad to know that I have mastered the art of hotels where all the ash trays have been stolen by previous guests. I can now balance a cigarette butt on expensive furniture without noticeable damage

    And if you can understand what I am talking about you must be at least 45 years old

    To the OP:

    1. Change passwords
    2. Change user IDs

    If your host will play ball, make sure that they only accept a certain IP address (it will need to be fixed) for particular (admin) accounts.

    Sort out your authorities.....................for admin and other accounts.

    And why are you complaining about the way I am moderating your site?............you don't expect me to practice here do you?...............these are my friends
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    1. Issue notice to all members saying board will be done for next Xhrs for routine maintance
    2. Take board offline
    3. If running on your local machine (not a remote host) make backups and format / reinstall everything on your machine. Ensure when reinstalling that you include a Firewall and up-to-date AVP (incase it is more than your forum which has been comprimised). This might still need to be performed if it is your account the person has gained access to - tho it might just be me being overly paranoid
    4. Kill all other admin / mod accounts
    5. Change your admin password
    6. Kill current DB (mySQL?) user and create new one with different name / password (incase it is not forum but mySQL user which has been compromised
    7. Check forum software's website for any upgrades security patches
    8. Ensure server forum is running on is fully patched and upgraded
    9. Bring forum back online
    10. Start some form of logging procedure so you can find out exactly where an attack is coming from next time
    11. Start a routine backup procedure so should the worst happen again you dont lose much
    12. Ensure you keep up to date with all patches / fixes / upgrades
    13. Next time you post here try and include more information (where is frum running, what is it running on, what type of forum software is it, etc
