Thanks, marshalrusty. I appreciate your response.

Even if they were able to get your forum password, all it would let them do is log into your admin panel and make changes there. The reason that phpbb.com was attacked was because of a vulnerability in the phpList software, which is separate from the phpBB forum software. So, in your instance, it depends what you mean by "attacked," to know if it's related.

Thank you. All settings are "as was" in the ACP. I have posted elsewhere on this board regarding the incidents I am experiencing and the opinion of my hosts.

It all depends what host you are using. My one is working fine. I use fi.st
