Hmm... maybe it's time to change SMF (the forum software) to something else (?)

Anyway, glad to see most people didn't get hit by the exploits end intention, but anyone who did visit here and wasn't patched will prob be back with hijackthis/combofix logs soon  ::)

What patch? How can i find out if i was hit or not?  ;)

Edit: I saw the czech forum.

It used a 1.5 year old vulnerability in Windows.
Unless your browser is way outdated, you should be safe.

No,maybe you should use Avira.I think for a AV forum,to be hacked,twice,in the space of several months,is a joke.Its amateurish,thankfully,I surf with Sandboxie,so any shit,I get from this forum,is washed away.

Dear Avast Forum Gurus,

Is anyone infected with anything - or did anyone pick up anything dangerous from the forum hack?

I also noticed after entering 'forum.avast.com' that I was directed to the Czech version of the Avast forum.

I didn't see the other 'diversion' website mentioned in this thread.

I use Windows XP Pro fully patched, Firefox 2.0.0.12, Avast Pro 4.7.1098, ZoooneAlarm Pro 7.0.470.000, super anti spyware, spybot, ad-aware, AVG anti-rootkit, AVG anti-spyware, A-squared, Super Anti-Spyware, F-Secure Blacklight and Spybots RootAlyzer.

Should I scan my computer additionally to the weekly scans I do? Given that I also was presented with the Czech version?

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!

And Happy Easter!!!!!!
