    It appears that my forum was hijacked on my site

    http://www.workfromhome.biz/forum

    Is there anyway to easily unjack this ?

    I'm not concerned with old posts / users etc

    Also I noticed the guys pic took a longtime to load and it was loading
    from http://polat.sitemynet.com ... I did a search at yahoo for http://sitemynet.com and it is loaded with hijacked stuff in the results

    Is there anyway to get the guys hosting shut down ?


    thanks

    What forum were u running? phpbb? He is probably a script kiddy who just replaced your index pages with some cross scripting exploit.

    Yep, you could try and contact the hosting company.

    Probably not going to be able to do much about it. That site is at 212.175.12.236 and whois yields this:

    You can of course report it but it's not likely there will be any penalty for the hacker...
