"Suspected attack site"
Posted: Sun Aug 16, 2009 12:44 pm
My domain got hacked and a small obfuscated script was put on one of my pages that made Firefox block it. I fixed the code, changed passwords, got rid of the script that I think might have caused the security vulnerability, and have submitted the site for re-review so that this should stop in a few days. If you use Firefox, you probably can't access KFU. But don't worry, this only affected my domain, the forum is safe and none of our information or posts have been damaged. Sorry about the downtime!

Oh MAN. D: Yeah I can't even navigate the site with Firefox anymore (I could when I posted before if I clicked something to clear the warning every time). That freaking sucks. I hope all is well soon.

I know! It was so annoying yesterday when I discovered it, I wanted to back up my databases just in case and I couldn't get into the PHP My Admin because it was blocked, it was like three different frames all saying, "MALWARE!! PANIC!!! OH NOEEESSSS!!" and even if I pressed "ignore," it wouldn't work.
If you go into Tools > Options > Security and de-select "tell me if the site I'm visiting is a suspected attack site," you can view the site in Firefox. I understand if you (or anyone else on here) don't feel comfortable doing that in case of problems with other sites, though. I did it on my computer until this is fixed because I need to be able to access my own site.
The thing that sucks is that it was just ONE little code on ONE page that caused all this trouble! My Google review is still pending and they said that because of the way Firefox caches its data, it could take a few more days before everything loads properly, even though the malware problem has been fixed.

It's not the forum specifically, it's just my domain. There are just worms out there that infect private domains.

It's happened again.

It should be fixed now, is it? I caught it quicker this time. I think I found the source of the problem this time, too (for REAL this time!!), so it shouldn't happen again.

Yes, its fixed.
I'm sorry this has been happening to you.
