    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.

    Just realizing now, that it has actually happened in every one of my forums that are publicly accessible.

    Check the log:

    Admin CP -> Tools -> Moderator Log

    Done that, as I stated it in my first post.

    Couldn't find any suspicious activity.

    If not a moderator then maybe it was caused by an addon. What addons do you have installed?

    It's almost as if a moderator/admin has done "select all" then "close".

    Several Addons, but I am doubting it could be an addon, maybe a possible breech in security?

    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.
