  • URGENT FOR MODERATORS, MEMBERS, and SCOUTER-TERRY

    Gents,

    This afternoon I'm getting some really strange stuff come in as I load pages here at the Forum.

    When I look at my internet history, I see pages I've never seen before, such as content.womensforum.com, s108.cnzz.com, and xygaoke.cn.

    I'm used to seeing google syndication, I know that's how Terry sells ads.

    I'm concerned Scouter has been infected with "something."

    You are free to remove this post once you've read it. I'm leaving for work shortly, so I am purging my cache. PM me and I'll try to answer about 0500 tomorrow when I get off shift.

    YIS John

    I get this message in my inbox also:

    _______ has just replied to a topic that you are subscribed titled 'Litttle girl in a Cub Scout uniform', on the SCOUTER Forums.

    What is the link?

        I tried to edit my post, when I get an email notification of a response here, I also get this link in the notification:

        http://www.xvgaoke...

        what is this link? It can't be good. (This message has been edited by a staff member.)

          Thanks for the heads up... the site is constantly under "hack attacks", though usually those are thwarted without trouble. Some of the code for SCOUTER now is more than 10 years old, so there's a couple of chinks in the armor.

          This current problem is a result of a SQL injection virus, which embeds scripts within the posts. I've located the infection, and removed.

          If you notice other issues, just bring them to our attention.

          And it's always a good policy (here or anywhere on the Net) to not click something that looks suspicious to you!

          Thanks.

                        I'm not getting any e-mail notifications but when I use IE, it takes a long time to switch between topics & I have noticed some strange addresses in the bottom menu bar. This doesn't happen when I use FireFox.

                          Nothing odd has shown up using Netscape either.

                            When I use IE, I can't use the back button on my browser. It is filled with

                            xvgaoke***.

                            Just noticed this

                              In IE, I can use the back button when outside of scouter.com but not while at scouter.com
