Hello,

I am new to this board, but I am hoping someone here can help me.

My Invision Power Board forums were hacked last night, and I'm having a hard time getting them to look like they're supposed to.

When I logged in this morning, my forums page said "This forum has hacked by
kuteo (huyhoang-hacker) From Vitnamese http://matrix-reload.net have a good time!

My admin password had been changed, and the formatting of the forums had disappeared. I was able to go into my mySQL data and give myself back admin priveleges and change my password -- but I can't figure out why the site looks goofy. The style sheet is still in place, and yet it's obviously not using it.

The forum in question is this: **removed**

I'm unfortunately using the free version 1.3 of IPB that came with my site's control panel. So, IPB isn't really going to offer to help me, I'm afraid!! Does ANYONE know anything about this that might be able to help me?? I'm admittedly not very savvy with this sort of thing. . .

--Leslie

Guess you got your problem solved as the forum looks good to me. Wasn't interested in signing up so going by only the first page that appeared using your link.
