Your forum software has been hacked and is serving malware

Recommended Posts

I came to this forum via a google search and was hit by a redirect and explot attempt. When a user comes to the forum from google (with a referrer) a malicous script tag gets injected into the page which sets a cookie (to stop it happening again right away) and then redirects them to a url shortener. At the end of that url shortener is a malicous exploit server, which attempted to hit me with an adobe flash exploit. Since I run with flash disabled by default it didn't work on me, but most users probably wouldn't be so lucky. You need to examine the sources of your forum software and try to find where the script is being injected. Be sure to update your forum software/plugins as well.
