    I'm from BroncosHQ, the Brisbane Broncos forums, we have just been hacked within the last hour and the Cowboys forums got hacked yesterday or the day before. This is just a friendly warning for you guys to take whatever security precautions necessary to try to prevent this from happening.

    Good luck!

    It seems to be a VBulletin exploit, so you guys might be safe...

    Yeah we got hacked a few months back it was pretty hard trying to recover from it all.

    Hope you guys get through it ok and let me know if you need any help.

    A timely reminder to keep your versions up to date and make sure you do not install too many 3rd party plugins. Also I now run twice daily remote backups of the database and site so that in the future I can get us back up and running with minimal loss.

    Let us know how you go
