What happened?

I come back and it looks like a really old backup of the site was uploaded to the database??? Personal info I had deleted on purpose for privacy was showing up and I was forced to edit over it again. Old PMs were missing. I couldn't find information on this oddness anywhere?

Maybe somebody hacked it. Do you have remember me checked off? Other people can access it at anytime.

I'm really not sure how that may have even happened. We have a daily and a weekly backup of the database so we can never loose more than that if something even would happen. We've had no problems with the site lately.

Make sure that your browser is set to auto-refresh each page automatically when you visit them.

It's pretty hard to hack into someone's account. They'd have to know the password or use the same computer as you and only if you clicked the remember me button. After just a few failed attempts of guessing a password, it locks up the account and sends an e-mail to the user giving them the IP address of the person attempting to gain access to your account. At which point, if this would happen to you, you should report it to an admin right away.

Now if you had the remember me button clicked, anyone using your computer could gain access to your account here. Though, you'd probably want to ask around your house hold at who may have done that.

Once PMs are deleted, we have no way of recovering them.
