      I don't know what we are supposed to be looking at, but you are running a non-vbulletin file on that page. Remove it and maybe whatever the problem is (you never said) will go away.

      If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

          What are you talking about? Where are you seeing "rude none helpful (sic) comments"? You got hacked (I assume). It's been suggested that it was either via some SEO plugin or via a custom (non-vBulletin) page, and you haven't provided anything that would give reason to doubt those conclusions. How is that the fault of vBulletin?

            A lot of sites were hacked yesterday that were hosted on GoDaddy. If you are hosted on GoDaddy, then I suggest you contact them.

            Sites get hacked. It isn't always because of code in vbulletin. It is very often because of an unsecure server especially if you are on shared hosting.

              I clicked on the original link and it looked like a redirect had been added to his site
              The same one that keeps getting added to the global_start entries. Base64 pain in the neck hacking attempts.
              Whether or not hotlsot has since made any alterations, imported any more products since, which seems to the cure the problem, is another thing.
              But it was one of those "dont hit this button" type links that intrigues some of us. The page it diverted you to, flagged up all my anti virus alerts on the PC.
              Thats as far as I will go in this one.

                  A similar thing happened with WordPress on two hosting services recently - again, not a WordPress issue but a server configuration issue.
