Should I scan my computer additionally to the weekly scans I do? Given that I also was presented with the Czech version?
Don't worry... keep your weekly scans as usual...

Hi Avastfan1,

I missed all of the hack recently, being securely transferred to the Czech forum during the afternoon. Running NoScript inside Firefox should have protected you. I was there during the previous IFrame hack last year, but it brought me no harm and real data weren't being compromised. But it shows that certain software becomes more and more vulnerable to re-directed compromise: http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/the-10000-sites-js-malware-source-code-leaked/
I trust our mods to do what they have to do!

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.

:o

I'm surprised that AVG got it  :-X

You're hacked by Turkish Hackers.. They are members of www.cyber-warrior.org

But they are only member.. So you are not hacked by Cyber-warrior.Org, hacked by some members ( Volqan- Ekin0x )

This is link;

http://www.cyber-warrior.org/forum/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=31&TopicID=250317&PagePosition=1&ThreadPage=1

(Note: Cyber-Warrior.Org is best hacker group in the world from Turkiye, so be careful ;) )

Hi cw.org,

Just helped a user from Turkey here with a malware problem. He was rather grateful when his machine was clean again. We do not deserve to be hacked. But maybe it had nothing to do with the mission  of the site offering forum help, but all with a weakness in the forum software. They can be qualified hackers, but not very ethical at that,

It may not have been "ethical", but it sure showed us the forum can be exploited if people want to exploit it, fix the problem!  ;D

Fully agree Lee.
This is the second attack neither of which did any damage but who needs the annoyance.  >:(

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

There really isn't much of a safer alternative. Secunia.com lists plenty of vulnerabilities in all the major forum softwares (though most are patched) with SMF having the least.  SMF has no publicized unpatched vulnerabilities.
