    is there a way to revert changes just by one hacked mod account? It was a sectional moderator and someone brute forced their way in.

    Use the Revert Message Edits option in the ACP.

    You can at least seen in the moderator log what he did.
    From there you can revert it.

    But there is no option to revert everything in bulk.

    Since those are thread title changes, I don't think there's anything that would cover that in bulk unfortunately.

    Also, someone needs to teach these script kiddies that brute forcing does not equate to hacking, hacking takes intelligence and knowledge, something these kids seriously lack.

    I think the only thing you can really do is restore from a backup, and enforce 2 factor authentication for all staff members.
