My question is coming out in this days, browsing some yabb community .... in 10 days i've see 3 different YabbSE Systems shoutdown from hackers attack....
The last, 5 minutes ago, that the url hacked:
________________

http://xlboards.mihopa.com/ggz/index.php?board=;action=profile;user=Sabotage

On address bar,  in first instance taht was appearing and Sabotage at final is a nasty thing.
The server http://xlboards.mihopa.com give subdomains for free preinstalled yabbSE (maybe somebody of YabbSE staff know the webmaster?) .... The subdomain-board ggz have been hacked (i  think) in first instance (one hour ago) and than all sistem on server  http://xlboards.mihopa.com (in this moment) are shoutdown.....
Maybe i'm only in paranoia, or maybe the webmasters involved have not change the opportune patched files, (???!!!) but i've a fresh install of yabb ready to open for my little community, and i would like to be sure before open the forum section.....
thanks to all for any reassurance!  :-[

It's very possible this could be something totally different.

The URL you are showing is for editing a user's profile.  Many people chose names like "Carnage," "Sabotage," etc. because they find them cool.  So that in itself means nothing to me.

Do you know if this was the latest version of YaBB SE?

Can you provide detailed and full access logs for the time of hacking?

If so, I can tell you whether YaBB SE was at fault or not.
