    Boxy asked for more information about 2 hours ago in a ticket.

    I'll have a look at it but it looks like your template was edited which means someone has DB access, i'll investigate once we have more information.

    Does anyone know anything about how to get rid of this? I have had my server comany remove all instances, but it creeps back in several hours later. My server company told me to get in touch with VB to see what they know and I have a ticket in, but does anyone know anything about this exploit?

    Any member of mine that visits my sites thru IE or AOL browser gets a virus.
    Sorry, I have no idea what you are talking about. You should start a new thread with all the relevant info.

    I read over at the IPB Boards Lindy logged in to take a look what was going on. On a closed thread, it said that they upgraded the board software and the matter was resolved...

    It probably has less to do with IPB and more to do with the poor service their offshored corporate IT provides. I have witnessed some of their major screw-ups, so if the same outsourced IT serviced the website, this does not surprise me in the least.

    I'm surprised AMD still off-shores their IT support.

    It's a lot more likely that a server-side exploit was run.

    The Iframe tag is supported by more than IE and is a W3C standard tag as of HTML 4.01. Any standards compliant browser should support it.

    Big sites, known companies and fortune500 people etc are constantly the victom of weekly if not daily hack / abuse / threat / etc attacks. It is bound to happen that someone gets lucky and a web is too late with patching.

    Thumbsup for the script kiddies. (up their..)

    Even so, it's entirely possible that the same thing could happen in vB, phpBB, etc. If IPB works for AMD, there is no reason for them to switch.

    Maybe it's just a coincidence, eh...

    Well, it was a Windows exploit, so it doesn't really have to do anything with IPB. Unless it does... (i'll link it again: http://forums.invisionpower.com/inde...owtopic=206790)

    Hehe.
