    We were hacked just recently. I found out about this this evening, and I was seriously shaken up at first, but then someone recommended that I host with them, and now I did, and I'll have to start over again unless I can get a backup from my co-administrator, PM it to the site owner of the person who requested i host with them, etc... I'm in the process of creating new boards though. Sometimes I almost wish I didn't start doing this, but we now have a domain so it's all good.

    I would be surprised if JakJak could hack the forum unless your password was really easy to guess. Also I'm guessing your PS account was hacked?

    PS = Promotion Source? I haven't been on that site in ages, so I don't know. My Forum Promotion was though. I think it was a case of our password being all to easy to guess. Thankfully on FP, Fowler was kind enough to reset my password for me, which is the one I use on FP, as for Chatting Time, I think the Cpanel might have been hacked into, because I changed my password on the main forum a while back.

    I'm sure you were using the cPanel password somewhere else, but for now on I have a random password for Chatting Time's cPanel to make sure we don't get hacked again

    I haven't. I always change my passwords on everything to something long and random because being hacked is probably the worst thing that can happen on the internet.

    Lately Chatting Time was hacked and it was due to an account password being week. From now on passwords are very secure of admins.

    My first forum, The Spam Can was hacked, due to a trojan in my computer.
