    Quick statement on security issues

    First of all, I can't put into words how sorry I am about the security issues our site has been fighting over the last week or so. Know that we have been burning the candle at both ends and are working on finding a solution to this as soon as possible. We currently have three different IT departments, including one VBulletin security expert trying to figure this thing out. I will keep you all updated in this thread as the day rolls along.

    Re: Quick statement on security issues

    Does this have anything to do with why when i click on any of the forum links on the left i get rerouted back to my homepage?

    Im on google chrome and this is the first ive seen any kind of effect.

    Re: Quick statement on security issues

    Chris I am sure this sucks for you and you are working on this. But why has there been a thread going for over week titled There are not viruses on this site, when this site is having issues? It really makes things confusing for those of us that are not computer experts.

    That happened to me yesterday (in Firefox). I got routed to iGoogle, though instead (I don't think it was set as my homepage). Although I downloaded Avast and Malwarebytes and ran scans, I think what more likely fixed it was rebooting. None of the scans turned up any problems. That I've never had similar problems (any problems) in the past suggests it is related.

    That thread was created back in May and kept getting brought back up. That's all there is to it.

    Trust me, this is as frustrating for me as it is you guys. We are and have been working tirelessly on this. We made a lot of progress yesterday and hopefully that is the case today as well. I'll keep you updated.

    Could it be one of the ads that is serving up the problem? Or any of the other sites you use for page tracking, embedded links, etc?

    Re: Quick statement on security issues

    So is it safe to view on my Blackberry? I don't want to mess with it on my laptop, as it's a work laptop, but I haven't had any problems with it on my phone yet.

    You are a handsome, intelligent man who does a fantastic job of covering Cyclone sports.

    Does that help?
