Not the FFD: Hackers suck

I’m sure many of you have noticed over the last few days – particularly if you’ve been using Google Chrome – that many trying to access this site have been hit in the face with a red screen declaring that the site is unsafe to visit.

Unfortunately, it’s partially true. The site got nailed by an iframe and js exploit that’s targeted many large WordPress based sites. While it won’t steal your info or log your data, the exploit may feed you rubbish adverts for services you never thought you wanted or needed – stuff like dating nonsense, penis pills and menopause medication.

If you’re interested, you can read all the details about it here.

Those of you who’ve soldiered on and visited despite the warnings? You rule!

You know who doesn’t rule? The jerks and hackers who keep targeting awesome sites like this one. We have the team at Sucuri doing all they can to clear this infection, and stop any others like it from happening in the future.

    Yes. Those penis pills are definitely because of the hackers. Definitely the first time I’ve seen those ads. Yes, definitely.

        Actually I am a zombie at work because I started at 1pm after getting in bed at 12 cause I was too exited.

        Apparently the zones are all random just like the mercs. My first merc was a South African and the country I had to go help out first was South Africa. Hell my first mission was in Pretoria (Place looks way better after the aliens took over mind you. 😛 ). So my patriotism made me play till I had to go to work.

        Game is brutal and a bit heavy handed on the timed missions but it is amazing.

          That would be pretty amazing if they start you out in your own country with your own nationality mercs…. Example: the US get their shitty country and people and the Brits their own and we our own, and as you progress and get larger you can get mercs from other countries due to your influence.
