I'm getting this error from AVG Web Shield :-

Exploit Blackhole Exploit Kit (type 2187) on www.amibay.com/index.php

That's with Firefox and Internet Explorer, its more than likely a false positive but maybe worth looking into

We know about it. 1&1 appear to have taken the write protect off the index.php file and we've been hit by the exploit again.

I can't fix it here at work, I'll sort it out later. If you stay away from the index.php page you should be OK.

I'm slowly losing the will to live with this...... :S

Thought you were moving it to a new host?

Hi there Merlin, sorry to say it also appears with the www.amibay.com link too.

Don't let this get you down, I know that things like this can be so frustrating especially when they are not of your own making, time for a break and lots of coffee

OK, that was because the "We're offline" page was taking precedence over the actual site index! I've removed that now, so the site should work correctly for all concerned. You may need to hold down shift and hit reload on your web-browser to clear your caches.

The site is all sparkly clean and sorted out now. The exploit has been fully removed.

@thgill; we will be very shortly. Plans are in place....

Most of the delay in getting the site back was outside of our control..... *whistles*

So Merlin, how many times do amiga hackers have to take down Amibay until you guys change your draconian methods??

Is there something you need to admit to there, Magnetic...? That's a very strong accusation to make and possibly an admission you made there.

I don't suppose you are brave enough to name these 'hackers' though, are you?

I don't think we need two threads on the exact same subject and to merge them would cause all kinds of chaos so I will close this one (and not before time).

If Magnetic has any issues can I kindly suggest he takes them away from EAB or I will take him away from EAB.
