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.

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.

You wont need to disable javascript, just iframes really.

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