    Recent malware issues and site health

    Recently, you may have noticed malware warnings while trying to access parts (or all) of the website.

    Google identified malicious JavaScript code that had been appended to 100's of vBulletin files. These files have now all been scrubbed. Additional counter measures have been implemented to keep unauthorized modifications to these types of files from happening again.

    Google has completed a post-cleanup review of the site and no longer considers the site dangerous (since I have removed all the malicious code).

    Things should all be happy now in ZRXland (well, at least as far as the site health is concerned).


    BTW, some of you may have noticed an outage yesterday. This was related to a routing issue with our service provider and had nothing to do with the site itself...

    Re: Recent malware issues and site health

    Could you share with us more details on how this is happening?

    For example, ZRXOA.ORG owns it own physical server in (lets say for example in Mucho Granda [Airplane II] and )the "shxt hits the fan".....via little Chinese "G-Men" are sneaking in and uploading a bad javascript.

    So I assume one of the Admin(s) passwords to the servers is being hacked to do so?

    What is the Privacy Policy of ZRXOA.org and how do you advise us to set our
    browsers settings(Ex: Cookies) and Antivirus Settings?
