    Gaining Access to Private Forum

    Hi. I want to know how to gain access to a forum that is password protected, where access is granted by the administrator. The administrator is a very immature 2*-year-old woman that my 44-year-old husband and father of * (I am younger than he is) has become involved with. I do not want to interfere with the forum; I only want to read what she is posting to see whether he is "giving away the farm" and what his intentions are.

    I tried to apply for access, going through anonymouse to disguise my IP, but access is only granted to "well-known members of the My Little Pony" community. (I told you that she was immature. )

    Anyone able to help? I just want to make sure my kids are safe and that my family remains financially secure.

    *sigh*

    Sorry I should have read the "banned" thread first. Apparently you don't take kindly to requests such as this. Maybe you could point me in the right direction to look?

    Can you post the link to this forum? Maybe it's running on a vulnerable version of the software used to create it.

    Also, does the forum allow many guesses on the password (*0 or more)? Then you can try using a program to bruteforce the login, because it's most likely a word from the dictionary.

    The forum is called [url]www.ponylandghetto.com[/url]. I do not know how many tries you get to log in, though.



    Thanks for your interest in helping. As I said, I don't want to cause trouble; just want to make sure nothing is going on that would be harmful to my kids.

    Well, since the site doesn't allow new accounts to be registered, there's really nothing I can do. I also can't tell what version they are using.

    They're using a software known as phpBB. This software is usually pretty secure, and they block multiple login attempts.

    Well, that is something new; they were allowing registrations this morning. If you know the membernames is it possible to use a password cracker to find out one of the passwords?

    No, she's not Danielle Tyler. That's the person who co-runs the forum--"buttah" I think the name is. The other girl lives in New Zealand but she's in NJ right now staying with my husband. I do have her real name, other ***rds she posts at, etc. I even know her Warcraft account name, which is where he 'picked' her up.

    The ***rd she runs and may have registered to her is called MLParena.com--another "My Little Pony" site.

    Because the forums block repeated attempts at logging in, pass crackers are out of the question.

    You could use multiple proxies, but that would be time consuming, and probably be useless.

    @ mike - Is there anyway that I can find the version of phpBB a site is running?

    Yes, brute forcing is out of the question.

    Not that I know of; it's a sort of security by obscurity I suppose.

    Looking at the whois records though, we can see that the domain was registered on 27th October 2004. Considering the fact that the site only consists of a forum, we can be quite sure that they installed the forum soon after acquiring the domain. Around this time, phpBB v2.0.* was released (in November of 04) so the forum version is probably 2.0.* (give or take).

    If any of you were willing to, there are unlimited possibilities of getting what you want (social engineering, email spoofing, exploiting, etc.).

    If you need any information that would be unseemly for me to supply publicly, I could be reached at [email]catofbabylon@**********[/email].

    Thanks much.

    Not sure this would help, but some of the women who are members of ponylandghetto.com--including the woman my husband is involved with--are also members of this site, which is not a locked site:

    [url]http://www.ponylandscatfight.com/[/url]

    Maybe some of them use the same passwords?

    Note: All actions described below were done to test security, not for malicious purposes.

    It has proved impossible to determine their hosting provider. The whois records indicate that they are hosted on pagemonster.com, but that website returns a blank page. A part of the whois records gave theplanet.com its name server provider, but after talking to a theplanet.com live chat representative, I found out that the website is not hosted by them either. They wouldn't tell me if pagemonster.com is one of their resellers.

    So this leaves me with no options. If someone were to attempt to get forum and website information from the ponylandghetto.com administrators or forum users, they would have needed to spoof an email from the service department of their hosting company with credible information.
