you said it.
Are you sure the virus is coming directly from your site? Does it still happened if you was to visit the site again?
google antivirus software
Always have an AV in handy running on your computer
Right.. Good for you.
And, before you say that, I only use stuff that is shared on BHW and reputable adobe stuff.
Are you saying that the files on BHW are malicious?
And why are ALL my other websites fine?
I don't really appreciate those sarcastic remarks after losing ALL my sleep and ALL my data. No offence.
Not sure, Hostgator removed it within 30 mins. Was hacked once before, by some turkish group.
Im not sure its still there. I assume it's gone. but yes definitely from my site, messed up a uni computer.
What happened the first time? Bet they left some backdoors and thats what happened this time. I always wipe a site clean and reinstall for that reason. Good luck!
Dude are you blind?... Did you even read what I said? The only stuff is from BHW and CLEAN adobe stuff.
It was from the website. NOT MY LAPTOP. Cool. I think you understand now.
This is all in hindsight now, but to help deter this from happening on your computer in the future I would recommend installing some VM software and just doing any browsing from inside the virtual machine. I would also run any questionable programs inside the virtual machine until you are sure it is safe. That way if something happens you can just delete the virtual machine and your pc should be ok still (just have to reload a new instance of the VM).
It's hard to say exactly how they did it, but if it affected your personal pc and another one you used from the university then chances are it had the potential to do the same to everyone else who accessed the site, unless they had maybe a script blocking program installed. NoScript on Firefox has saved me a couple of times
What about all the hackers over in HackForums.com lol. I can't really elaborate on what they talk about here as discussing hacking is against BHW t.o.s but I presume most of you are familiar with them....
