As you are aware, last week the site was kind of shut down because of the iframe virus that somehow got onto the site. It looks like the actual website has been infected with some sort of virus/script so there are potentially going to be some issues over the next few days. No idea what they scripts can do, but they appear to be able to access the admin panel, so I'll have to get them removed asap.

Apologies for any downtime, but I thought you should all be aware.

Some Java thing popped up when I logged in before and my AVG told me it was dangerous, just letting you know.

Yeah that's the iframe virus thing. Don't install anything that the site pops up with.

I already had iFrames/floating frames disabled for this site, or rather I had not enabled it as I only enable it on sites that demands it.
Now I also disabled JS. But I don't know if I have to disable JS as long as iFrames are disabled?

I have asked before if this shit came from an ad and no one has confirmed it. Did it come from an infected ad, or did some hacker plant the malware here? Maybe you don't know?

Most likely it was because of a hacker, or some script kiddies exploiting a software bug with the forum software. Hopefully won't take too long to fix. You wont need to disable javascript, just iframes really.

Malicious script accessing the admin panel... that sounds like a disaster ready to happen! But you're apparently adept at coding & internet so we'll just have to trust that you are capable of taking whatever measures necessary to neuter that part of the threat until Invision can patch the bug. I don't want to find everyone here banned or deleted by some script kiddies.

Ah thanks for that. It's a PITA to use the board with JS disabled.

Ok the server guys have removed the malicious scripts that the script kiddies added to the site and taken precautions to prevent them from being able to upload them again. Here's hoping everything is safe and secure once again, but keep your eyes open. If you see anything suspicious, let me know.

Is it an iframe like the one we had on here? If so I would be concerned, especially if you didn't put it there yourself.

I put it there my self. What it does is it a different webpage on one webpage and refreshes it every 3 minutes inside the frame (instead of refreshing the entire page). mikeselectrical.com

There's nothing wrong with iframes, it's just if you didn't put them there yourself and the page they're including on your website is forcing you to download a virus, then you don't want that. Your iframe should be ok, although tbh I don't like to use them.
