I read the NY Times online yesterday evening and then watched the last part of the History channel WW II series. It sure was hard for me.

By the way, my Mac always warns me automatically if there is an attempt to download an application (program). I don't know if Microsoft operating systems have that feature, or you have to look for it and enable it. All computers come with a firewall and they help too. But you have to make sure it is turned on.

Thanks for the hard work, guys. The page with the message and updates was a nice touch. I was getting a little itchy without the forums, I felt better when I knew how the cleanup was progressing

Thanks for your understanding and patience while we worked on this Thursday. Without getting into details these hackers find amazing ways to weasel their way into systems. Thanks to your feedback we caught it quickly and hopefully mitigated the amount of harm that could be done.

The software that was exploited was vBulletin, the main software that runs our community. They also leveraged vBSEO, the software that optimizes our site for search engines. Both are very mature software packages but each one had a single flaw that on their own is not too critical but together can be used for unsavory purposes.

We have patched all of our software and taken additional measures to make sure this type of exploit will not bite us again.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

drop downs

Andy, I told Roger about this last night, but it is still happening. When reading some of the blogs, there will be a word that is in green and has a double underline. When my mouse passes over these words, a drop down appears, There is a title of Vibrant and than a advertising; for instance in you last blog the word engine is an ad for the Catapiller nascar race. Are these a result of the hackers?mike

These Vibrant Media ads are only shown to guests. Are you seeing them when you are logged in?

Andy,
I would like to thank you and all your techs for catching and taking care of the problem instead of letting it wonder. Although I am not an avid poster, I am a avid visitor and have to have my fix, I happend on the site friday when doing some background work for a trailer inspection and got the message, I was a little worried that the site would no longer be around to enjoy.
Once again MANY MANY THANKS TO Y'ALL

Mark Hutchens

Virus

Must have picked up some kind of virus can't open any task options in the control panel. All I get is "Windows cannot find C:\windows\system32\rundll 32.exe."

Seems like it all started after visiting this site a couple of days ago.

Hank
