XF 1.2 Forum hacked - Trying to fix

#1
Hey guys,
I wasn't exactly hacked, I just had an ex-staff member of mine out of anger try and destroy the forums.
I have looked through many files, they are untouched, I have looked through all logs, and it seems the only thing he could have done was edit some stuff through MySQL.

The only thing I can see that he did was delete the Nodes of the forums, all of the Threads and Replies seem to still be inside of the database.

Here's what it looks like when I'm logged in:

It's also like that for everybody. I can still login to the Admin panel.
I have checked the permissions groups, and they seem all untouched, any body might know what's wrong?

If you would like to see proof check http://diamcraft.com/forum1/

If you don't.....

Once I deleted a node that had 2 categories, and around 5 forums. Didn't touch the threads.

The next time I created a forum, the threads started to appear again. Cannot remember what I did, or if I did anything out of the ordinary though.

Did this staff member have admin privileges when he was "staff?"

The other thing to consider is: What hacks are vulnerable? Go to your ACP and do a file check in "tools."

You could try what I posted above. Like I said, I don't think I did anything different, just made another Category/Forum, and the threads started appearing again.

Yes, I tried to add a category, even I still can't see it under forums, no permissions!
:(
If you've added a category, and forum node, you'll still need to associate the thread with the new node_id, as they are linked together. You'll need to edit xf_thread and change the node_id in the table for each thread to be the new node_id that you have created where you want the thread to be.

EDIT: Although, I came across this exact same problem when helping someone out here: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/xf_node-empty.60525/

Hello, I actually did figure this out, but it still doesn't fix the permission problem..
