Hello,

We have a website with apps/DBs running on mySQL.  User feels one of the DBs may have been hacked and certain words put into a table.

Is there a log we can review with activity or a way to tell if this is old or recent?

Thanks

Hi btny,

you should have a backup and then you could find differncies. This could also a way to check if you have been hacked. Another way doesn't exists, because mySql doesn't save any connection.

Kind regards,
Henning

Thanks for your input.

Both solutions helped, we wound up adding tables which show timestamps, etc.
