------------------------------------------------------------------------
Of course even the most honest websites can be hacked, its a sad fact of modern computer life. I just want to update and inform the moderators on this forum to the fact that I received this warning. I may or may not be the only one, but felt in was my duty to report what I found so the computer security issues can be properly addressed ASAP by the proper people on this forum. Hopefully the Moderators on this forum are already addressing the issue.

Sincerely,

NonMcTubber.

There is another thread on this. It has been reported to the moderators and I don't know if there is a determination as to the cause or if the warning is inaccurate but it is being researched.

I also just received the same message whenever I try to access the main menu screen. It does not show up on all the sub forums yet.

Yes, I went into the gaming forum and got slammed. When I did a a sweep with my Malwarebytes I got the following...




YOU have been infected with the KAMSPY VIRUS... No way to fix this train wreck. YOU ARE FUCKED... Time for a re-install I guess.

As for me, I did my malware bytes and AV scans and I am still evidently not infected. But I am also loaded up with Host and HIPS files plus process control programs in my computer security strategy.

I have 100% confidence that this websites moderators are on the job and I hope we all get this web site back as soon as possible. If hackers can take down this web site, its just a wake up call sign that all of us are vulnerable too.

As OP on this thread I somewhat resent any attempts to make humor out of this thread. Oblioman is correct, there does not seem to be any Kamsky virus, but that does not shed any heat or light on the problems all the very wonderful high definition forums moderators now face.

This forum got hacked and sadly any hacker worthy of the name will install all kinds of back doors they can reenter once the original means of entry is sealed. To me this is no laughing matter and we cannot underestimate the problems our administrators now face. No website anywhere is immune from hacking, and all I can do is offer to help I can to our administrators in any way I can.

Lets rally around our forum administrators instead of making light of a serious problem.
