My IP address was added to the banned list

I just had to ftp and alter settings.pl as I could not log in, getting "you are banned" message. and found my IP number was in the banned list.

I know I did not add any ip numbers last night when last accessing forum, other than someone hacking my site is there any other way that it would have been added automatically?

And if someone hacked my site what can I do to protect it? I am running version YaBB 2.5 AE would updating protect me more? (doing a site update anyway and updating Yabb was part of my plan)

when you  say someone hacking your site do you just mean the forum or your website as a whole ?.

sorry didn't see reply till now. It was just the forum, the only change was my IP address being added to the banned list. But this has not happened again since.. so i'm hoping it was a one off.

it may be that you did something after loging out or when you entered the forum and that is when you got the ip ban if there is a next time have a look at the forum error log and see if you can see your ip in there to check.
