site attacked...maybe? Help ASAP!


I had a site up but yesterday I was getting an Error that simply said SQL Error, please check the log. So after doing some invesitgating, the server log showed errors with the phpbb plugin. So I went to my cpanel and looked at the database and did a check and it came back with a few errors, so I ran the repair function through cpanel and it said if fixed all the errors. But now I'm getting this error:

owned By osm@n //
Warning: main(/home/sfclass/public_html/phpBB2/common.): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/sfclass/plugins/phpbbbridge/functions.inc on line 73

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '/home/sfclass/public_html/phpBB2/common.' (include_path='/home/sfclass/system/pear/:.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/sfclass/plugins/phpbbbridge/functions.inc on line 73

Is my site SOL or can this be fixed? I can pay someone to fix it for me or if someone can give me a step by step procedure, maybe I can do it. I don't want to lose any of the posts, pics or users that have already signed up or are members. The site is a class reunion site for my wife's 20th reunion so it's pretty important.

Thank you
Scott (aka. bendy)

Sounds like an issue with phpBB. Were you running the latest version?

Can't really help you with getting it back up again, though, as I'm not familiar with it.

bye, Dirk

If you google "owned By osm@n" you will find a site that documents digital website defacements H-Zone. You will see that he/sh/it is very busy of late and it sounds like you have been attacked succesfully. Find out if it is a mass defacement or a simple home page defacement. If the whole site has been compromised, you need to find out how they got in - which could be thru MySQL, PHBB, your hosting company or possibly Geeklog if you aren't patched up to date. Identify any holes to be plugged but don't apply them until you've reciovered your site from your backups - you do have backups - don't you? - If its worth typing, its worth backing up - and then change all your passwords - for your databases and your site.
