WTF?

Have a question about the website or a suggestion? Found a typo? Something not working right on the forum?

Mrs 5times would never have believed that one anyway. I was just checking out Villiers Terrace, love, and err, a porno site suddenly appeared....lol...

Thanks for all the work with the (new) forum, Mr Brian. It looks good now.

No problem. It was a little more trouble than I wanted but I like learning new things and at least it didn't just blow up the whole thing. We've been going strong since 2007 without losing the database. It's a shame all the Official Bunnymen forum stuff is all gone.

I still have a concern that people may be getting redirects to naughty sites so please keep an eye out for that sort of thing. If you do get redirected, PM me with what you were doing when it happened and try to copy the address of the site and include that (or bookmark it for personal use :lol: )

Nothing good ever happens to me.
With the Force as his ally he did battle with the Dark Lord. And he showed the measure of a true Jedi at a place called "The Death Star" where hope for the Galaxy was reborn. May all who struggle against tyranny hold his memory in their hearts

Ok, I still need anyone to PM me if they see any redirects. Please include your country location, local date and time of occurrence and the URL you were redirected to. Do NOT post the URL here. My hosting company says everything should be clean but I am doubtful. :frown:

It's still doing it. Straight onto a "site" as soon as I came in via Google. Did an erase history, clean cache, etc and it was back to normal second attempt. I can't give you the URL. It's just another one of those find a "friend" sites with assorted pics.

I'll take a note of the URL when it next appears - to help you to try to stop it from happening on this forum, obviously! :biggrin:

This is baffling to me and my hosting support people and it is so random. I've had it happen 2x in the last 5 days and I've been on the site tons, tweaking the new forum style. I don't get it.

Only thing I can think of is that some kind of weird code is on your host's server, or someone hacked the forum and put the code in - too technical for me. I have read some complaints about other .php sites doing that, but seems mostly ones with ads. I don't think it's malware on our end or likely to infect our computers - hope not. Problem is can it not encourage an influx of spambots and the like? And it makes it NSFW for those that access from work.

I've see other posts on other sites with similar redirect issues like a hacked .htaccess file or rouge encrypted code inserted into PHP but other than a weird line in a page that's been removed and scanning all the pages and files nothing is turning up. I hate the idea of this happening to people on a work PC.

It happened again now, I PM'ed you the URL. It said "redirect" in the URL, don't know if that is of importance.
