    I went to log on today and found my account isn’t working. All posts by me and most other members now have guest under their username. I have emailed Yellowfin about this but I don’t know what could have happened.

    I suppose all members will have to rejoin. The only thing that annoys me is that I lost my post count.

    I know that it is possible to restore the forum if yellowfin has a backup, but I don’t think he would have a recent backup so if he did restore it all recent posts will be lost. I have emailed yellowfin so I hope he will be online soon to see what happened

    I see that all the spam accounts are still on the member list along with a couple of legit members, so I don’t know what has happened. Maybe an issue with the forum database. I know it is possible for yellowfin to restore post counts to members so after that is done everything should be back to normal. It’s just good we didn’t loose the actual posts

    Yeah. It was about 6 I think I tried to log on and it didn’t work. Then I saw that all the posts said guests under the username and all post counts were gone

    I know search.php is vulnerable to SQL injection and admin password could be obtained by doing that
