It's more likely your web hosting account or machine was compromised. If you followed the correct procedures after you were hacked the first time, and you were hacked again after that, it becomes increasingly likely it's not a flaw in MyBB. There are MyBB forums with tens of millions of posts which haven't been hacked, and it's unlikely someone would target a small forum if they could exploit larger ones.

Instead of switching the forum software, try figuring out where the issue is. If you can't do that your users have no reason to trust you with their data. It sounds like you don't know what you're doing so you're putting the blame on MyBB.
It's not like those big boards share their security measures with the rest of us either.

I respect that and I shall stay with MyBB and maybe my mistake was that I took the security measures a little too lightly or maybe I skipped over something.

But my members are what makes my forum and my priority is their safety but also their joy of my community. I could go over to IPB and get a fresh start, or I could be a man and face up and say "ok , I effed up somewhere and I paid for it" and thats what i've chosen to do.
