We were hacked

Recommended Posts

As you probably have realized, we were hacked on Monday (our Monday) and we're only just back online. Some IDIOT decide to infect our server with a malicious script. Our hosting company took their sweet time helping out and we wound up having to pay a specialist to find the virus.

Fingers crossed that it won't happen again.

Kirk,

These can be a real bear to get rid of expecially with a java script. It has to be removed from each page. Glad to see the site back up.

Glad to hear you are back up again.

My malware programs wouldn't let me log in here for a couple of days.

Seems content to do that now............. :online2lo

mset3 mentioned java...........my setup will not let java become active and has disabled it.

I don't know much about computers but I have read that java can be a real pain.

I do fine without it so I never felt the need to investigate it further.

No, Mike, it was more of a redirect to a site that had malware rather than GfB having malware. But that was all that was needed for Google to do it's scary red page thing. But, it's always a good idea to regularly change passwords anyway.

It's great to be back! For the last week I've been getting a bare bones gfb version where I could read, but not interact. Then I saw at the bottom of the page it said, "offline". Was that my browser/computer settings or was everyone the same?

Well done Clancy-magic-fingers.

Didn't realize you all were hacked till I got word about it but glad to know all's well at GfB once gain. I laid off guitar for a year or so but wandered back to it again and will be checking out all the GfB postings I've probably missed.
