With Firefox I have some points appearing on the top left corner of the forum. Do you also have that? While the site is loading the points increase, like some kind of progress bar. Just mention it 'cause it might help to find the problem.


Have you got a screen shot??

From the looks of things, the problem is probably in a hacked javascript or some sort of 'insert', not in the html itself. And it is being looked at. This isn't the first time YaBBForum has been targeted. (And it seems to me it's gotten more frequent as things gotten busier with good things.)

With "the code should be checked" I did not mean the source code but for example the html files of THIS forum. As I once also had the problem that someone included some scripts into one of my index files.

YaBBForum.com has been attacked by hackers - again - (this is due - as near as I know - to a (probable) security issue with the hosting service). The Problem is not with YaBB's code, it's with crud being added through through the security breach. JonB is working on it as we speak.

This does not affect your forum as it's on a different server - although you're likely to get some scary warnings when you go to your Admin Center.

This is NOT due to any weakness in YaBB software security.

Today when I visited yabbforum.com I got a big red warning saying that this site is listed as an attacking one. This happened never before here. Perhaps the code should be checked?
