    Hack attack at ZHPMafia.com - A Hybrid Affair

    Gents,

    I just wanted to keep you filled in on recent developments. We have two things going on:

    We currently have a hybrid hack going on. Normally they only occur either for mobile users OR for people from search engines. In our case, both have to occur to show symptoms. This breed is different. Yes. We have a new breed. None of the scanners out there know how to detect this and the usual places that these types of hacks hide are not applicable in our case. So whatever we have here is some new strain of malware.

    New strains can take a while to track down but now that Unhack knows how to trigger it, they can find it.

    Moving forward:

    1. Tapatalk is down hard.

    2. Website is fully functioning when NOT reaching it via Google. Just type in www.zhpmafia.com

    Restoration:

    1. Update VBulleting to latest version and patch (Latest version available: 4.2.3 Patch Level 2) > I am still looking for someone to do this.

    2. Unhack is currently hunting down the issue with a fix soon, hopefully.

    3. When 1 and 2 above are resolved, Tapatalk should work correctly.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for being patient. As with all Family problems, we'll get through this stronger on the other side.

    Why would a forum be hacked? What would be valuable from this site to a hacker? I don't get it.

    Is this why, in the last 24 hours or so, all forum pages are drawing wider than my screensize, requiring constant L<>R scrolling?

    It's mainly to redirect the user from Google to whatever they're pushing.
