Hi Guest!

Our website stays online because of the support of our advertisers. A huge part of them are from banner ads that appear on our site. While some of them seems to be intrusive for some, these ads are needed to keep our community running and continue providing free membership service for buyers.

In light to this, we request that you disable ad blocking programs or add our website to your ad blocker's whitelist. This keeps us from offering our basic membership to everyone for free and help with maintenance costs of our website.

If you have already disabled ad blocking programs or added us into the whitelist, please ignore this message, this message will disappear in a few seconds!

    It was all done in a virtual machine... no harm done.

    Further research appears to point to an exploit affecting many forums. We are one of many.

    We do think we have now found the file that was compromised and removed it. Our findings would appear to be related to an iframe injection through a third party plugin. We believe we have plugged the hole - but would ask that you help us to check at your end and report your findings.

    Clear according to HTTPFox too.

    People whose browser automatically downloaded a file might want to check your javascript/security permissions.

    Seems to be fine now. I'll post here if I see anything else unusual.

    Why do people intentionally make viruses/malware etc? Very frustrating.

    All clear for me - nice one Anthony.

    Thanks though to Richard for pointing it out.

    Hi!

    Could you reveal what exactly the issue was? We are having the same issue on our site and have yet to find the culprit.
    If you do not want to post it publicly please pm me or send me an email.

    Much appreciated!

    Chris
