Forum Attack Over the Weekend

Post by chuck » Mon 08 Oct , 2012 7:05 am

Over the weekend some hackers were able to inject malicious code into the forum software that would redirect you to a spam site. Google blacklisted the forum. On Sunday afternoon I did a complete reinstall of clean updated forum software which solved the problem. I want to apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.

Yeah, I did get the Google warning for a couple days.

No need to apologize. Thanks so much for the complete reinstall of clean updated forum software.

Best Regards,

Joe

The site has been under attack for weeks now. They somehow got into the server and infected all the php script files on a number of websites. I just finished spending the whole day cleaning off what I think is the last of the problem.
