MyBB Forum Software Hacked
In the last hour hacking group UGNazi responsible for the WHMCS Social Engineering Attack have reported on their official Twitter account they have hacked popular forum software MyBB.
In a statement on their Twitter account they said “We are Nazis, We don’t understand the meaning of sins, Were back http://Mybb.com Hacked” they also reported the database for MyBB will be leaked soon.
Update: They have recently released an official statement on the hacking which can be found below. As this has only just recently happened we are currently investigating whenever this was due to a vulnerability in the MyBB Software itself or a security vulnerability on their servers. We will continue to update this article as the news comes in.
Update 2#: After further investigating it seems UGNazi have gained access to the management of the Domain Name via provider NameCheap as the current whois information for the Domain Name has been changed. We will continue to update this article as the news comes in.

Update 3#: We are happy to announce MyBB have regained control over their Domain Name and they are currently investigating the hacking and whenever their database was compromised more updates soon.
MyBB has a relatively low-risk security record. Personal information needs to be secure. If we can acces it, so can terrorists. The truth is buried under lies and false promises. We tried to bring the truth to light, and we were ignored.
We aksed you all before to open your eyes, have you done it? Have you seen that only you can keep yourself safe? Have you realized that only you are responsible for yourself? Have you opened your eyes to the fact that https:// does not mean that your information is safe? Or are you still being a sheep? Have you taken responsibility for believing lies?
We have, and will continue to cause destruction. Are you mad? We have given you warnings and shown you examples of what we can do. If these companies do not secure their sites properly, data will be leaked. It is as simple as that.
“hackforums.net” uses the forum software MyBB, We are tired of all the skids who claim they are hackers. As a personal note: we just don’t like you, Jesse Labrocca.
For those who think that people shouldn’t enter places unauthorized: remove your information. Your morals and legal jargon will not stop these things from happening. If you don’t want people to have access to it, don’t give them the opportunity. There is risk in every endeavor, you are all painfully unaware of the risk these databases hold. Don’t despair, for we are watching, and will continue to be watching.
