View Full Version : The Malware Warning Problem

As you have probably already noticed the forums have been tagged with a Malware warning on Firefox, Google Chrome browsers as well as the Google Search engine.

I have been trying all day to figure out the problem and believe I've finally found it. At first you are probably thinking it was the Ads that were causing it but that is not the case.

What actually happened was that there was a security hole with the vbseo plugin for vbulletin which allowed them to insert an iframe code to all the pages. This was a difficult problem to track down as no filenames were modified, no standard templates changed, etc...

Now that the bad code is off the page I have appealed to Google for review and removal of the warning. It should be off and back to normal tomorrow hopefully.

On a side note, I will moving the forums to a new server this weekend and will be upgrading the forums to version 4 a week after that.

It's about time. This place caused my old computer to bluescreen and for this one to make a loud screeching noise. Get your dick out of amazon's ass and do something about it.

Jk, thanks for fixing this

LOL, IE6, I hope?

I don't actually know, these computers have lots of things disabled, you can't click on the "Help" button on the toolbar, so I can see the version.

I think it could be IE 5, even.

shut it down anyway as a warning. and make me an admin seeing as i've been here like a year or two now.

I typically browse the boards on my Droid while I'm at work...so I guess the Malware warning doesn't affect the Android OS. Yay.

^ man, kahlo was right. I got to you. I actually made you question your life trajectory. That's why you keep bringing this up.

For the record i wear whatever the fuck i like to work, usually just jeans and whatever shirt i have on hand, generally the black ones cause coffee shows up like a bitch on everything else. Today I rocked my Genghis Tron tee and my three-quarter cutoffs cause it was kinda hot. Man, I hate having to look the same that way I do when I go out when I'm at work. I'm growing my beard again too, shit is gonna rule so hard.

Sorry man, what failures exactly are you talking about? I lost my job, was irritated at the time, bounced straight back and got a new one, closer to home, for more money. In three days.

Two years ago I was smoking my body weight in pot every month, drinking a bottle of wine to myself every night and had no motivation to or inspiration to do anything with my life.

Now i'm totally clean, i'm running two websites, one of which gives me the oppurtunity to work really closely with a band who I worship pretty hard, i'm saving money, I don't hate myself every day when I go to work, i've cleaned up my mental health, I'm gathering a following doing stand-up comedy, i'm co-writing a pilot for a TV show, and i'm beginning to think about what I want to study in a few years. I'm getting fit, i'm starting to put more effort into how I look, I have more self-respect than ever before. I feel great.

That's why i'm not biting when you berate me for giving a shit about what I do: because I feel great about myself, and some vitriolic business dude on the internet cannot do a single thing to change that.

Have a nice day :D

Ahh fuck it, man. He's not winding me up, so why the fuck not? If the dude wants to shadow my every post with rambling accusations of my inherent failure at life, I may as well give him some fodder to hilariously attempt to turn on me.

I don't believe in having a laugh at somebody else's expense these days, but flipnut is clearly a bit of an ass, so i'll take this opportunity to indulge myself.
