The QFMG forums have been hacked. Again.

Warning: Click only if you have a virus scanner, or are using a non-IE browser.

[edit]

Hmm, apparently some people did receive that email after all from forums@hero6.com with the following message: "Please, help our forum - traffmoney.biz/dl/loadadv606", with a live link and to an exe.
 
If you received such an email, delete it immediately.

Ugh.  When I clicked that I got at least 5 virus warnings and eventually it ended up freezing IE entirely. :P

It might be that the hacker has either direct access to the forum's template file, or access to the page that allows you to modify it.  The problem is, if it's a security hole in the software, changing the admin password probably won't stop them (since they were able to give themselves admin rights through the hole). 

If Invision doesn't provide free security patches (which is a VERY bad business decision for them IMO), I would seriously consider converting your forum to another kind.  I use SMF here.  It's pretty secure, free and they update pretty often.

I don't understand what's the point of being so destructive toward groups of people that do nothing but something really neat and good for the fan community. It's mean and it's so wrong, I hope things get solved soon  :(

Thanks. The hack has been removed, so that part's fixed. Took me forever to find the hack!

It was in the board wrapper all along.

Unfortunately, the forums are still down because we're planning to convert it to something more stable. We're seriously considering SMF.

Awesome! ;D 

I'm not sure what version of Invision you have, but I noticed they have converters for both Invision 1.3 & under and Invision2 preview.  Remember to make a backup of everything (files and database) before you try converting it, just in case you run into problems during the conversion process. :)

It's Invision 1.3.1. Thanks for your help, Yonkey.

Cool.  I think the converter should still work (assuming 1.3.1 didn't change much from 1.3 final).  Also, that converter is for SMF 1.0.7.  There's a converter for Invision to SMF 1.1 RC2, but it's beta (as is that SMF version) so it's probably best to convert to 1.0.7 first and then upgrade from 1.0.7 to 1.1 later on once you know everything is fine.

1.0.7 is considered the more stable version, but it lacks some of the newer features that the 1.1 version has.  Both get updated for security patches, so you'll be fine in that sense.

As of today, I will no longer be working for Hero6. It has been a pleasure interacting with you, the fans and visitors. It's a pity I can't say the same for some members of my team.

I'm not sure if this is worth getting too enthusiastic over yet, if for no other reason than because of the history of unavoidable obstacles in the project's development. Nevertheless, this news is better than hearing nothing, and hopefully will prove to be a source for real optimism.

Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...
