Are you kidding me? No wonder you got hacked, you've installed half the mods site...

Your best bet is to check through the access logs around the time of the attack.
No longer involved in the MyBB project.
if for exmaple i disable all & only active all will i still got hacked?
I will just advise you to take about half of those out. The more code you have, the greater the surface for exploiting. Your board will probably run quicker too when the plugins don't need to run their queries.

You should probably change your passwords (admin, FTP, cPanel). I may be paranoid, but it is better to be safer than sorry.

LoL...that's some list of plugins. You've got problems my friend. Disable any plugin you don't need that's a first.

You don't seem knowledgeable enough to figure out how you got hacked but I'll bet it's one of those plugins.
I have done deleteing almost half of them now i am lefting 10 - 13 plugins which i need (: Thanks guys.
yep - that is the way to do it. I did it too once, and I had to cut back. Have you noticed a speed boost after removing a lot of those?
