About the Malware Warning

Posted by: TGST

First off, let me apologize for the malware warnings you’ve been getting all morning.

They are scary as hell for you and really annoying for me, since I know what part of the site was affected by the attack.

The Bad Things were hidden away in a part of the site that no use could actually get to unless they┬ádeliberately┬átyped in the correct address. An address that you’d never have any reason to go, because until the malware attack, it didn’t exist.

I’ve cleaned it out, run some exploit checkers, resubmitted the site to Google, and closed off what I think was the loop hole that let them in.

Bottom line? The site is as clean as I can make it. But, don’t take my word for it – run your own virus scans and check your systems, just to make sure.

Again, my apologies for this.

    Thanks for your work on this. I’ve had my site “hacked” before, and there are few things as annoying as wasting hours of your life digging around in code just to make things status quo again.

Have Your Say
