Forum hacked?

Post

Hello,

Today, upon visiting the forum, the windows media player is called and it tries to access this:

Code: Select all

http://www.hheuhez.co.cc/x55/helpctrall.php

It looks like the forum got manipulated by an attacker.

Best regards!

Google Chrome is also warning me there is a malware on F1technical and suggested me to stay away from here.

Microsoft Security Essentials Beta V2 also gives a warning. But it's not a problem for me as my anti malware component blocked any download of code. I think any security software would. Tomba runs a very tight ship and deals with servers that have always been pretty secure. First time occurrence; since I joined the Forum, I'm sure that Tomba or his server will track this down. Im not worried. It happens to even the best sites. :D

Thanks for reporting this guys.
I also had a few PM's about this.

Is this still happening?
The curious thing is that I never had any such warning.

Is it on the forum pages or on news, or where exactly?

Google's safe search is down today, so it's likely that only those who got the latest update prior are getting the warning. Usually these things come not from the site itself, but from one of the off-site advertisers.

Yet another reason to run ad-block.

I'd wild guess that it is conditioned by banners that appear on site depending on location of forum visitor. Perhaps certain banners contain malicious flash or auto load something on load. I had some that were crashing Firefox.

Beat me to it. :lol:

fwiw, gp.com had the same problem earlier this week. In their case, it was their main advertiser, FXDD.

I had it just by going directly to the home page not to the forum.
As I was just opening my gmail account I wasn't sure what was going on.

After refreshing the f1technical site I had it again.
Even though now it does not occur any more.

Strange thing

Well, check my previous post.

All of you who experience those problems should send protest email to Atjeu Publishing LLC hosting company on whose server that malicious site is sales@atjeu.com

Or call them if you're in USA +1-623-434-5294

The more complaints, sooner it will become shut down.

I blocked the domain from google ads, might take a few hours to take effect.
Let me know if you get any more errors ok?
