Attack site?

Post by tiwonge »

In visiting http://qbdb.grapesmoker.com/index.php I'm told:
Reported Attack Site!

This web site at qbdb.grapesmoker.com has been reported as an attack site and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

Attack sites try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

Some attack sites intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.
And I can't use the search form because while I can click ignore to ignore the warning, it doesn't pass the search terms through.

God, what a pain in the ass. I think this has to do with the fact that my host account was compromised at the same time as my account was hijacked. I have long since repaired the damage (obviously), but apparently the listing stuck. I'll see what I can do to get rid of this.

Has some sort of malicious programming been introduced onto the site as a consequence of the attack, or in some unrelated incident? I'm no computer expert, but I'd like to know if it's possible, and (if so) whether this has happened or not.

Kind of. There was a hidden iframe in the index.php files, which I think might result in a redirection to an attack site. It appears to date as of today, so I think it's unlikely that anyone was harmed, but you should run a virus scan none the less.

Looks like I'm no longer blacklisted. Thanks for bringing that to my attention, Colin.

It's still coming up as an attack site for me.

Main page and a few packets worked for me, but when I clicked "explanation" on the right sidebar, the pop-up window gave me THREAT DETECTED.

Yeah, the upload option is a security problem. I've disabled it and removed the crap again.

I'm still having security issues. I apologize for this, but I've taken the site offline until I can work out what the problem actually is. That won't happen until later in the summer; sorry to people who have used the archive but it's just not something I can deal with at the moment.
