    The hacking reports we have been made aware of have been due to compromised passwords, server configuration/software, or other installed applications, such as WordPress.
    If you are on shared hosting, it's also possible they managed to gain access via another account on the server.

    Your host is the best person to contact.

    Probably best to take this conversation private to the xenforo staff so they can address any issues quickly

    We don't currently have anything to look into, because the methods used aren't exactly clear. It'd be like looking for a needle in a haystack. If any one has any further information, please open a ticket.

    I am closing this to reduce the speculation and prevent any more links to sites running nulled versions of XF from being posted.

    You can report it via the ticket system but we would need specifics to be able to investigate.
