I just made a post and up popped a message saying something like ‘you will now be taken to your post – if you (something) a poll you will go to that’. It was so fast I couldn’t read the message.
What does this mean and is it an error the techies need to know about?May 2, 2013 at 10:31 am #1139981
Thanks for letting us know, most peculiar. We’re investigating to see if there’s something awry!
Also please let me know if it happens again.

When I submitted a new thread, I got this message. Not sure if this is what you also saw. Message was posted in any case.

Just got the same message as Karen when I posted. I then went in to edit the post (had forgotten to mention something very, very important lol) but couldn’t save the edited version…so I deleted it

Here is the pop up message I get with each post now
Thank you for posting! You will now be taken to your post. If you opted to post to a poll, you will now be allowed to do so.

Thanks for that Karen,
We’ve been taking a look at this and have identified the source of the problem, now just to fix it! Hopefully in the morning. Fortunately posts can still get through at this stage. I’ll update once we’re clearer.

I too am getting a pop up – but it’s different to those mentioned… each time I click a link to post on the forums, I receive an AVG Detection window telling me that AVG has blocked several threats – all named “Exploit Blackhole Exploit Kit (Type 2704)”… Given the timing, I assume this has something to do with the issues that others have reported but thought I would mentionMay 2, 2013 at 11:27 pm #1139991
This AVG message has been reported a few times as well.
I’ll update this morning.

It looks like we had a hack attempt late yesterday from an overseas gaming site related to vBulletin (our widely used forum software) – at this stage it seems to be a random effort rather than anything targeted. We’ll clean this out in the next few hours and then make sure there are no vulnerabilities.
I’ll update this thread again once all is resolved.

We’re still double-checking everything, but all should now be good and the popups and alerts should all be cleared now. In the meantime if you still see anything odd or any alerts please let me know via PM or on this thread.
