    Attention administrators. Maybe someone should take a look at this.

    Very likely malware on the server, perhaps some botnet script, mail spam script, phishing page, or potentially something worse (e.g. grabbing passwords but I doubt it).

    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?

    I know this place is run by volunteers but to be honest it's not good enough for this site to be left hacked for so long.

    This site 'may' be hacked....

    Probably just means that it is not HTTPS.

    Whenever coming to the site from a web search engine to some of the older posts I get the warning about a redirector. New stuff seems to be clean.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    No it doesn't. It's referring to the malicious code that that hackers injected into the web site so that sometime you get redirected to their add page.

    Regarding the hacking on the worlds most insecure hunting forum. Given that I have been bitching about this for a while now I will put my money where my mouth is and offer to fix this.

    Admins - if you can give me admin access to the web site I am happy to spend my time de-hacking this forum.

    Put your money where your mouth is and outline the fix in writing.

    I understand @MassiveAttack you want to help and try fix a problem 'if' there is one but why not just tell spanners the solution? To be very honest this is probably our best forum in New Zealand and he does a pretty damn good job at it too...not really any need for another admin in my opinion but that's just my 10cents worth

    I know where the problem lies and how to fix it - I also know what comes along with fixing it.
    It's not what you think, but I'm all ears if you know something that I don't.
