Security Issues Part 2

Hey guys, DS here.

After i returned from vacation in january the host took down the account, cause of too much script abuse. I did some research and looks like the wp-phpbb bridge was used by spammers/bots A LOT.  I deactivated it for now as well as new forum registrations for a week, to see if that will solve the problem

Security Issues! (updated 01/12/14)

Hello guys!

I’ve encountered some security issues across the hosting account.

Basically, something inserts a redirect link to some silly website to the header of the wordpress theme. While it’s not dangerous, it’s still nasty and the shit spreaded across the host to other websites. I’ve changed fto password and cleaned the shit, we’ll see if this helps.

Google thinks site is infected, while it’s not atm. They will reconsider.

But the problem MAY return.

If you get any kind of SPAM or any issues, or you think you were hacked or something like that – please contact me through here

UPDATE 01/12/14:

Everything is fixed now. Had to disabler pingback and also all comments from unregistered users. They generated too much spam

There is a bug

Hi all!

It looks like there’s a nasty bug in one of the plugins connecting the WP to the forum.

I’ve disabled the plugin now but not sure how the board and registration system will behave now.

I am trying to resolve the issue ASAP.

TY
