[False report] Hacked - MyBB has a exploit?
Checked the uploads folder, there is no shell there,.
I advise you to delete everything except attachments and avatars. Then upload all mybb files again and edit your config.php file.

Check the attachments and avatars folders for suspicious files as well.
All my plugins are available for free at MyBB Extend and on my GitHub. has been closed and none of my plugins are officially maintained or supported.
I've done that already, there is still a error.
This user has been denied support. This user has been denied support.
some php file causing this error
New error:
MyBB has experienced an internal SQL error and cannot continue.

SQL Error:
2002 - Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
[READ] Unable to connect to MySQL server
MySQL seams to be stopped. Perhaps the whole server was hacked?

Its a x10hosting server, I don't doubt it got exploited.
You'll want to contact them then.

You can closed this now. Got it solved. The server was rooted using symlink in shell which gave hacks ability to exploit freedsb to gain root.
Quote:The hackers used some sort of exploit in MyBB. I had all addons disabled at the time, so it could not be a addon(plugin).

Plugins don't really need to be deactivated in order to be a risk to your board (if those were wrote with the primary intention to harm you anyways).

The error you post seems like one I noticed in my forum just some days ago and it is back just now.
