Thread: Forum hacked

  1. Default Forum hacked

    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

    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
