Default Re: Forum hacked?

Hi Jeff,

I guess I missed your reply. I received an email addressed to fdchappie and this is the only forum I've used that user id on.

Craig is correct that port 3306 should not be open, only the web server should be able to access the database. With the port open to the database hackers can get direct access to your/our data.
