I have no idea how it happened, but threads on the first page of several of my forums have been locked. I looked at some my moderator logs and there isn't any suspicious activity there, so now I am wondering how this could have really happened.

Here are two screenshots of different forums.

If anyone encountered this issue before, or has any opinions on how to trouble shoot this problem so it doesn't happen again please do.

Well, the more direct question is, do you have any addons that feature thread locking of any kind?

A security breech is possible. But locking all of your threads doesn't fit the profile. Usually a hacker will:

1) Deface your site with their own splash page.

2) Delete your forum information.

If you suspect your server was compromised then you need to consult with your host or server person.
