Re: Malware on http://www.techtalkz.com

Thanks for the report guys.

There was a reported malware infection in the forums in Aug 2012. After every cleanup It kept coming back every few months and I was too lazy to fix the problem completely!!

http://www.techtalkz.com/feed-back/5...your-help.html

Anyway, this Google blacklist warning messages finally forced me fix the root cause and cleanup the server properly (I had to spent the the entire weekend on it though). The implemented solution blocks all known attack vectors and the forum software & plugins are now up-to-date. But there is still a possibility of new methods/attacks; so I'll keep monitoring the situation.

Btw. I've submitted a review request with Google and by now the forum should be off from the blacklist globally. You shouldn't get anymore warnings in Google Search results, Firefox or Chrome.

If this happens again please email/PM me ASAP.

Cheers,
Strider
