  • Hi,

    I have several sites that have been hacked recently - I can get restore copies. Can anyone tell me - Do I need to restore the MySQL database files, or does the hack only affect files and folders?

    This question has been answered by chrisandy. See the first response.

      So far I've not heard of anybody having a compromised DB but if you have a recent back up (before July 17th), I would use it. Don't forget to upgrade all extras and especially the Gallery snippet (if installed) to the latest version.

        Many thanks. Ive just recovered one site without a DB backup - thanks for reminding me about the Gallery snippet! I did have to add the 'name' field to the mox_context in the mySql table though to get the auto-updater to work...
        • Might be worth just checking the database for any users that shouldn't be there but as I say, I've not heard of anybody having problems there.
