In progress Forums Hacked

Post by TheDove on June 3rd 2013, 1:04 am

Today I had logged into my forum as I do every day and was re-routed to this website:

http://www.malware-site.www/

This website will not let me log in. Do you have a solution?

Thank you.

Your forum is not hacked, one of your JS codes on your forum is currently redirecting your users to FMQuery.

Be sure to cancel the page before it fully loads so it does not redirect you to FMQuery. Once you access your administration panel inspect your JS codes and disable any from FMQuery for the time being.

What the hell is this FMQuery rubbbish!!!

Our forum has been taken over by this crap!! Cant access the Admin panel as mentioned above. GREAT!

Really beginning to think that ever hosting our forum through Forumotion was a big mistake!! Think we will be looking for another solution after this episode.

Please read over our conversation here http://help.forumotion.com/t124376-domain-name-redirects-to-http-wwwfmquerycom There is numerous ways to resolve this issue, and for the most part it is not entirely forumotions fault as you have installed the javascript code that is currently causing the problem on your own volition. I'm sure there is an explanation as to why the script is currently redirecting FM forums. Wink

I'm getting the same redirect and haven't made any changes to my site. any /all codes i have in my javascipt management came via this support site and i haven't altered any of the the codes. so to even suggest it's to our violation is complete poop.

Edit I'm not mad at you SethC1995. I appreciate you taking the time to help members sort this. thumright

Managed to get it fixed but not easy! Had to disable java in my browser, stop pages redirecting, then access Admin panel and disable Java script.

You suggest it's my fault as I have installed the JS script but our forum was fine until earlier this evening so it's nothing I've done as my settings have remained unchanged for months! This is something FM have implemented or changed for this issue to happen and considering the cost of the add on's we are paying for our forum I'm really getting fed up with the service being offered and the frequent blips that come along.

That's not precisely what I meant, my wording may be off.

Anyhow the script was fine until today, I've taken a look and found this in the contents:
Code:
var redir_url = 'http://www.fmquery.com/'; if (window != top) { top.location.href = redir_url; } else { window.location = redir_url; }
Which is obviously redirecting all of our forums. I understand you're upset however, fmquery is solely responsible for the contents of the script. The 'Registration Validation' is referred through an external source http://malware-site.www which means it can be modified at anytime without your knowing. You're pretty much taking a gamble with those types of Javascript codes which is what I've realized now.

Hello,

If you're getting this problem, please do what SethC1995 suggested above, disable the javascript that you have that relates to registration validation and FM Chatbox, there's a reference thread for this:

Sorry to hear that this happened, however it is rather common. As others said, disable javascript so you can view forums and then go delete that Javascript. If you need help, PM me.
