I am getting scareware redirects when I come into the forums from a google search.

I've seen this on another forum. Basically they stated that there had been a hack that only affected users coming in via a search link so there might be something out there that inserts itself into search links via a man in the middle attack to gather passwords and other credentials. I don't keep up with security issues like I had to when I worked in network security so I have no pointers to help out.

I am unable to replicate this and so far am not seeing anything in our database to redirect. If you get this, please copy the scareware url and send it to me in a PM. Any screenshots you can get will be helpful too. That will significantly help track this down.

Hi, I just had this again coming directly to the site through the URL. This is the third time now although there's been long breaks. All three have been when YSDC was the tab I was opening

Just to update, I have been running checks but haven't found anything so far. I'll keep a close eye on my computer - it could potentially be something weird and intermediate like an affected router. As you say Paul, it doesn't act like I'd expect if the site was affected - I'm on here all the time after all.
