    Forum cyber attack?

    My google won't let me navigate to this forum anymore.

    I am getting all sorts of alerts that this site is now unsafe, due to
    some malware or trojan that the website is infected with.

    I am currently forced to log in from a community computer.

    This started during the Holidays, maybe there was a cyber attack?

    Please look into this!

    Yep, someone or something did some naughty stuff. I got it taken care of. Moving forward I think I will also have the SPAM greatly reduced.

    Oh, and are you accessing wannabebigforums.com orwannabebig.com/forums? The first URL has a problem, but is an old one we no longer use that simply redirects to the 2nd one.

    ive been attemtping to reply to this for a few days. i just have the home page bookmarked. not with forums anywhere in the url. im using firefox and still get the attack warning, even coming to the site just now to post this.

    i keep being told that i need moderator approval for every reply i try to make. hopefully this one makes it through

    There is no issue with the site. I just used Firefox. My guess is you have something cached in. Clear everything from your browser (upper left corner under history - make sure all boxes are clicked and delete "everything" under the drop-down box at the top). Close the browser and reopen it. Manually type in www.wannabebig.com. Create a new bookmark. That should resolve the issue.

    What exactly happened to this site, was it hacked?

    I still only can log in from a community computer.

    Our ad server software was hacked and that allowed them to hack the site as well.

    Again, are you trying to access wannebebigforums.com? If so, that is the problem. Use wannabebig.com/forums. There should be no issues.
