Many of you will have noticed that our forum has been hacked a few times recently and has been redirecting to a spam website. I'm really sorry about this and I'm doing my best to fix it. I'll post an update when I've made some progress.

Thank you

Two nights running the site just redirected to Rap forums via Linkbucks
Wish I knew how the buggers were doing it..

No doubt tonight we'll get same treatment :(

Thanks, I thought it was chrome playing silly buggers, it's good to know the problem was your end and not mine.

I was going to post but I was unsure if it was my end or yours. I'd look a bit silly if I started blaming DYR for my problems.

So it turns out this guy (or gal) from Jordan had discovered an exploit in the vBulletin software and used it to load a ton of dodgy scripts on to the server. It's taken me ages to rebuild the forums with improved security but I think we're there now. If anyone notices anything odd, let me know. Thanks

I've cleaned up as best I can, but due the sheer volume I'm limited in what I can do. I have reported to Admin to fix the remainder.
