Either denial of service as a weapon against sites, slaving other people's machines to do their dirty work for them, stealing credit cards, stealing personal information thru spam - all of this is criminal. Just hard to prosecute.

Just wanted to report this alert I got 2 minutes ago. I only had tabs open for Richardspens.com and this website, when my Firefox (ver 3.6.3) was shut down and alert from ZoneAlarm Extreme Security displayed this box while typing a response here. I don't know if this was real time, or from an earlier visited website.

With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.

BINGO...there is a problem again. Just as I was posting this image, it appeared again, and shut down my browser, with no other sites visited.

Trend Micro anti-virus is warning me that something similar is happening when I access FPN or any sub page or forum. Obviously something is still going on here. It is blocking whatever link or script that the bad webpage is trying to load but the hackers must still be at it here.

Yes, apparently so.

I believe that a major difficulty is locating the real people.

The step from the virtual world to the real world can be hard to trace, if the criminals have covered their virtual tracks well enough.

The standard procedure for unsavory types such as these is to daisy-chain multiple proxy servers which have extremely short-lived logs (not to mention almost inaccessible system admins) and then to use rootkits to cover up their tracks on the target system. A well-versed cracker is almost impossible to find. The primary way crackers get convicted is through their own bragging.

Did you try clearing your browser cache?

Yes, it was fine all day today and just started up again a few minutes ago.

Well, indeed, it was fixed again.

 

There was another small loophole, which si also closed now.

 

Somebody is testing us it seems.

Hello, Admins!

 

I've received the following error a couple of times:

Warning: require_once(/home/fpnadmin/public_html/forum/admin/applications/core/sources/classes/attach/class_attach.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/fpnadmin/public_html/forum/admin/sources/base/core.php on line 1248

 

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/fpnadmin/public_html/forum/admin/applications/core/sources/classes/attach/class_attach.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php:/home/fpnadmin/public_html/forum/ips_kernel/') in /home/fpnadmin/public_html/forum/admin/sources/base/core.php on line 1248

 

The first time was going to FPN (I was already logged in), and clicking on 'View New Content'.

I logged out, and back in, thinking that I needed to refresh my logon since the upgrade.

 

Things looked good then, until I clicked on TMLee's homemade journal thread, where I received the same error.

 

Thank you for the work you all are doing, and I hope this error message helps, even if it is a pain in the butt.

- Jen

Getting the same goofy messages here, perhaps the hackers are still at it?? See if you can find them and poke them with a fountain pen and give them ink poisoning!! :mad:

See my reply above. That is fixed now, has nothing to do with the hackers but us trying to close any potential loopholes. This was was tackled a little too aggressively by ourselves.

Looks good for me now. Great pickup, Wim! Did you notice that link I posted a couple pages back about this problem apparently hitting between 7,000 - 100,000 websites (Computerworld article), depending on which guy's opinion they asked.

Yes, thanks I did. I actually saw it already even before you posted it :D.

 

We don't have the same problem however, although the guys in the newspaper may no thave gotten all facts, or not all facts right :D.
