First of all, I took my Wise Chat Pro down, so you won’t see anything when you go to the link above.
I saw a notification that I had left the chat but I saw my name on the list and wanted to know if I was really still there so I asked the other user – Anonymous3 – “Hi, Anonymous3, how is your Monday going” but in the chat window it appeared as though Anon3 was the one who had written it. I had no admin control, couldn’t kick or ban. Then s/he left. The first thing I did was remove my Wise Chat short code from the page. Then I changed my setting to no longer allow anonymous users. Here are my questions:
1 – is not allowing anonymous users enough to keep this from happening again?
2 – will I need to completely delete my original channel and start a new one?
3 – if I don’t allow anon users, will my friends/family who don’t have a WP account still be able to use my chat?
4 – a hacker taking over admin privileges to the chat doesn’t mean that s/he also took over anything else with the plug-in, I’m assuming? Please correct me if I am wrong.
It is interesting that, in reading through the last year+ of posts to this forum nobody else has reported the same thing, so I’m guessing this doesn’t happen often.
I use the Pro version which I only just bought a few days ago after using the free version successfully for several weeks, if that makes any difference?
Thank you for any light you can shed for me on this!
