Warning

Post by ER »

AoKH seems to have been hacked - the site redirects you to webarh.com which is a known source of trojans, malware, etc. :angry:

I hope they get it sorted out soon :blink:

Since I'm staff, I received an email from the HeavenGames network staff saying that forumers have been getting virus alerts. They're fixing the problem now. The forums seem to be working correctly, at least for me, though the news on the AoKH main page are blocked.

Indeed!

By the way, if you want more info, here is the info posted on the main HG site:
HeavenGames wrote:This morning a bot, or a hacker, found a vulnerability in our phpMyAdmin installation and used it to redirect visitors to a malware infected site. Most modern browsers (Current versions of Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer) have built-in protection against these things, as are systems with malware protection installed (anti-virus, MS defender, etc.). However, in the likelihood that your computer was infected by a virus or malware, please visit this page for tips on how to get it off your system.

We have removed all affected files on our server so that the redirect is disabled, and removed our phpMyAdmin installation.

We will be restoring from a backup from yesterday to ensure that no additional back doors were installed on the server. After the backup is restored we will implement additional measures to prevent a new installation of phpMyAdmin from being vulnerable to outside attack.

Looks like I can't edit my post. Oh well, you all can deal with the formatting errors.

HeavenGames is doing a system restore, so the site is down temporarily:
This restoration will take place starting at
around 10pm EDT and will last most of the night. During this time HG
will not be accessible.
So, you'll all have to wait to see the result of the Interleague Game.
