XOOPSdemos close your site, after being hacked, we have decided to close it, unfortunately we can not determine which was the weak point of the site, perhaps because older modules, or to download the modules on the same server.

We thank infinitely help and support trabis

Thanks and greetings to all!

I am really sad about this lapsa2000, it was one of my favorite site.
Is there any way to fix this? I hope you can switch on again!

I agree... very sad... we need more of these sites! Hopefully you will figure out the security hole and tell us...

I'm also very sad about it. Some people just have too much free time on their hands

Perhaps you could require all users to register first and grant privileges accordingly. It is just a shame to lose such a valuable resource. Just my opinion :)

I realize no one knows how the site was attacked, but I do have a question along the lines of security to ask.

Their are some software sites that suggest changing the name of the admin directory to the name of your choosing for security purposes. Is changing the name of the admin directory advisable with Xoops? Is this a change that can be made in the config files alone or does one have to get into the nuts and bolts of the software to make this change happen? Is adding .httpaccess to this newly renamed admin directory a good idea?

Hi' Alphamonk

Welcome to XOOPS

The renaming of admin directory's/useraccount's is normal in some software environment's.
But in XOOPS there are no directory named admin.
In every directory there is a index.html file with the following content
script>history.go(-1);</script>

If someone try to access the directory's in the browser, they will be sent back.
That is really not necessary in a linux/unix environment, because You can protect the directory's other ways. In Microsoft ISS I think it's necessary.

I ask about the green flags in protector and the protector log.
The protector is the must have module for XOOPS. It's like the firewall/antivirus on You own PC

I have written this guide
about security in XOOPS - maybe it can help?
Otherwise create a new tread with Your questions.
