Forum Hacked?

Post by Frank_Wx on September 12th 2017, 8:05 pm

Here is a message from one of my members on my forum. People replied to him they are having the same issues. I am concerned.


For the past week when viewing this site at my computer or iPad at home I immediately get a message that I've been infected with spyware and I'm frozen into it without being able to do a thing. I went to my tech person at school who also visits the site and she has the same thing happening to her when she accesses this site. She said the forum has been infected with Malware and a bad one at that. She says we were hacked.

Here is the link to my forum:

What do I have to do?

Hello,

What is happening there is likely a fake virus pop up triggered by an ad. The forum itself is NOT infected (all forumotion sites are securely hosted on secure servers and all login data is encrypted in a database), nor is the device itself likely infected at all.

It is simply a fake pop up triggered by a bad ad. If it happens again please tell your members to a screenshot of both the pop up and the ad being displayed and if possible the link to the ad. Then you can make a report on the issue in this only topic: http://help.forumotion.com/t147997-only-topic-malicious-inappropriate-ads .
