Warning about the forums.

Postby Yoshi » Wed Jul 08, 2009 2:15 pm

I don't really know HOW the hacks keep getting in but I've been trying to fix the problem for over 2 months now. If you see any pages with uber large text, email me (yoshi@slidewaysonline.com) with the url or link you clicked on.

FYI this is why firefox sometimes bitches that google doesn't like our site. As far as I can tell, the impact of this hack really isn't that bad but regardless, use virus scanners and (gasp) if you can deal with it, you might not want to use the forums for a while.

Well, as long as my work comp doesn't get hit again, I don't really care. That's strange though...

FYI its the exploit.html.iframe-6 virus. Avast and NOD32 catch this virus and are free for demo download if you guys want to grab it and make sure you aren't infected. I've cleaned up the website and changed passwords (again) and will be doing some deep cleaning on my home computers to make sure this doesn't happen again.

The theory is that a virus has infected my home computer and key logs the password for my ftp sites. It then infects all the index.php/htm/html filse on the website.

sorry, I gave you guys an internet std
