Yeah came across this last week when I was asked to post an event on there.
I also got a google-warning for this site.
Sucks pretty much since they have some fine info here and there.
With the amount of signature spam that occurs on that forum, with images and flash widgets being included from all over the web, something like that was bound to happen eventually.
Edit2: I was just reminded of an instance here on the Renoise forum a while ago, where someone was using a particular file or image host, which had gone bad at some point. Whenever this person’s images (their external avatar I think?) were being included in the forum threads, I think it was redirecting to another page that was loading some script, which was in turn triggering a malware warning in other users’ browsers. I forget the exact details anyway.
One of my customers has had the same problem recently. His site has been flagged as dangerous by Google.
He has FTP access to his site’s www folder, and his login/pass were somehow leaked or cracked by brute force. His homepage would be downloaded, modified and uploaded again.
I cleaned and uploaded his homepage, and it was hacked again within one hour.
I had to change his login/password (they were quite weak) and it stopped.
Then I had to add his site to my “Google webmaster tools” account and ask for the site to be checked again by Google to remove the warning page. It took less than two hours to have it marked as safe again.
Read something earlier today about all of this:
Looks to be pretty big.
Same kind of crap happened to my site before, man what a head ache and not to mention it looks VERY bad. One thing I learned was NEVER give out your password, even to your close friends (they may not play as safe as you do) and the next step is close backdoors to your site, so if your site has a directory called music, contact your host and ask them to close them.
