Youmacon forum got HACKED!!!

We are and have been looking into this issue. We have been cleaning it as it pops up but apparently this is a stubborn attack. Hopefully well have a permanent fix soon. But keep letting is know if anything changes.

The main index page looks fine right now, and this is the first time I've seen it clean in a long while. If it does get hacked again, and assuming the phpbb version is up to date, then maybe it would be a good idea to submit an incident report. (If you haven't already.)

Yep, looks like the main forum page is ok again. Thanks for working to fix the problem. I'll update if I see anything bad come back.

UPDATE!!!!!!!

I'm sorry to report that the virus link is back. This time, it is a lookin.at URL. I'm too scared to post the whole URL any more, but I'm sure you can figure it out. *SIGH*

And, my antivirus is blocking the entire Youmacon forum now, not just that page you get right after you log in like before. Looks like I'll be posting from a proxy from now on till this gets fixed. Image

Maybe it's time to do what EdrickV recommends and report this to the forum creators?

In case anyone would like the "official reassurance," we figured out how the virus was getting back in and eliminated its mode of reentry. So that should be the end of it.
