Even after we rolled back to the March database with matching site files. The hacker was able to hack us again. So we've decided to to do a complete upgrade and disable all the custom plugins that we were using. HongFire was one of the first fully customized Anime site on the internet which we spent many years to develop. So we really didn't want to lose all our customization. The hacker leave us with no choice but to remove all the plugins and upgrade the software to the latest version.
We now restored to May 31th database backup. Most of your files and attachments should still work. However if you see any missing avatars or attachments then please simply re upload them.
Help us if you could, Let's build up HongFire community again.
All users please reset your password. Specially Admins and moderators. "Admins and super moderators if you guys have problem accessing the admin forum please send me a PM or email"
Please report all bugs after this upgrade in this this thread http://www.hongfire.com/forum/forum/...ade-11-06-2016
