Malware Problem Fixed



Recommended Posts

I entered the site accepting the risk and no malware entered my PC.Did they really found malware code in the site or was just a false positive?

It has broken my daughters machine and I have to take it to the shop today to see if they can restore it. She has been a PIA without a working machine.

Thanks, admin team. Perhaps an inadequate expression for your hard work, but certainly well deserved.

Thanks for your efforts to get FPN back up and running - and safe. Very unfortunately, hackers are out there. Some are sociopaths, while some have criminal intent. I missed FPN for the couple of days it was down, but I understood the whole time that such things do and will happen. Let's all hope it doesn't happen again.

Our long international nightmare is over, thank goodness!

 

Fixed it for ya! Glad we're back. Thanks to the admins et al. for dealing with it and keeping us up to date.

I came here for the pictures and stayed for the conversation.

This was completely freaking me out. I also ran my own Spybot Seek & Destroy, and also Spywareblaster which both came up clean on my machine. But I couldn't get my fix. I started getting the DT's, shaking, frothing at the mouth, messing on myself. Don't do this again. I ran out of clean underwear!

 

+1 (except for the underwear problem)

Thank you so much for the hard work you devote to this site and for the effort to keep it running!

it's the old 'you don't realize how much something means to you until it's gone' routine. I was bereft! I even ventured over onto another well-known pen board but was dismayed at the level of hostility directed at FPN (albeit all from one guy!) and (here's the shallow part) the lack of pictures on the sales board (ha!).

 

VERY very glad to have FPN back. Thanks admin folks.

The first instance on 6/8/10 was indeed an attack. The subsequent notices were due to Google requiring a bit of red tape in order to remove their warning.

 

I think I was on here when the attack first started, I only get here (mostly) for my weekend, so on the 8th I had 56 pages of new content, I had gotten through almost all of those but on the last couple of pages I started getting the warnings whenever I clicked on a link. As far as I can tell I didn't pick up anything, but it was certainly annoying that every time I tried to get here, until this morning, I was getting either the warning or it would not let me pass the warning. (Yeah, I know how Google does things, but I wasn't using Google in any way.)

Thanks to all the FPN Admin Team for their hard work to get things back to normal once again. I was concerned that it might be a permanent problem, and am really pleased the Forum is up and running again.

 

3 cheers for the Admin Team: Hip Hip.....

Thanks a lot to the admins for their effort.

 

I was checking the site on a two hours base (24/24h), so I'm very happy we're back...
