Forum offline due to malware attack

Postby Adminlizzieborden » Fri Jan 09, 2015 1:36 pm

The forum was offline for over two days while we worked nonstop to eliminate the code that was inserted into the family of websites at LizzieAndrewBorden.com. This includes this forum and we are sorry about that.

The attack was made in early December, but the scan that located the malware was done recently. The referral page that you were sent to is the service provider. It was for their protection that they took all the sites offline and reported the outage to me, providing me with details on which files were affected.

Once the code was eliminated and further scans done to insure we are malware free, we are back online. Steps have been taken to help insure that all the sites under LizzieAndrewBorden.com are safe from further attack.

None of you were affected personally, as the focus of this attack was to take control of the site, not to infect the users or their computers.

If you have ANY issues, please email the admin at lizzieandrewborden (at) mac.com.

Thank you.
