    While only about 10 of the 116,000 members have problems, I'm not going to be too worried about it. Reloading the site would be the last option. There are a lot of modules, graphic and monetary changes to the site making a reload a not so simple task.

    Can you try re-downloading the ZIP file from the Members Area and re-upload all files (except install/install.php and includes/config.php.new) making sure you overwrite all files currently on your server.

    Does this resolve the problem?

    sites talked about on the forums:
    w5e3ir.com
    nvsq5x.com


    Any clue how to go about finding how these are getting launched?
    Boy, I've been getting this as well. Of course, everyone assumes it's our board that's doing it, but we're on a dedicated server and I've just checked it again.

    Posted this on our site, any thoughts from anyone would be welcome.
