The server wasn't breached or the database so userdata is untouched. Seems only that forum description was touched. Still, change your password just to be safe.
It probably happened due to the forum software being so outdated or vulnerability in extension. I have been waiting for the new phpbb 3.3 version to be a bit more stable and extensions to be updated before upgrading. So i was half expecting something like this to happen since there are some known vulnerabilities with the version we are on.
What happens next?
Well, i can't let something like this happen again. Updating at this point would mean losing some extensions. Might as well just move to another solution. I am going to search for forum software with functionalities we desire especially the attachments we have all gotten so used to, it's probably going to be xenforo again.
