    UGNazi group hacked mybb.com. They claim that they have access to its database as well. The twitter wrote;

    777af41e2ac44014e569a459e0bb25f5.png

    Since many users have same passwords as they used to login to mybb.com so its hereby notifying to change their passwords (at their site) as soon as possible before the hacker penetrate to your site.

    What it has to do with my hosting company ?? Its mybb.com

    Anyway, I just receives a news that its database is not hacked, however its domain has been hacked because of namecheap fault. Moreover its DNS cache is poisoned.

    Oh boy, for a second there I thought Yaldaram's site was hacked. I had to re-read the thread to understand what happened to mybb before I opened my big mouth. :eek:

    I just read about the UGNazis on wikipedia. I wonder if they edited their own wiki page. The first entry states they leaked US government employees information and ddosed .gov websites. That's like prison time right there.

    A day ago news softpedia reports that UGNazi Hacker Cosmo was arrested after a WHMCS breach. Well, no more computers for that fella.

    I read one of their tweet that some of their fellow hackers have been arrested. From where they were originating ?

    Well, that comes as a BIT of a surprise, but not so big that it's not fathomable. Hope they're back up soon :)

    first of all the script is never responsible (most of the time for hacking)

    The reasons for hacking can be summerized in here :

    1. server hideouts and vunerabilties
    2. any installation of cracked modifications
    3. user settings like allow .html or .php file to run and upload in your server
    4. not chmodding files properly
    5. /bash files and server /tmp files (or .ini files) tampered with
    6. some hackers just hack (who r the best)

    In one of his tweet, Chris told that it was due to the DNS cache being poisonous. However good news is that MyBB Group has recovered the domain from hackers. They're now transfering it to new registrar. :)
