Title: I think this site has been hacked
Post by: DSTGames on June 17, 2012, 01:40:35 PM
When i searched for shmup info on google, results from this forum redirect to
http://minkof.sellclassics.com/

When i researched it further, i found a page explaining the hack:
http://www.data0.net/?p=883

From this info it appears that shmupdev is the one with the redirect hack, not my browser. Fortunately the parasite URL has already been taken down.

Let me know if there's anything i can do to help.

Yeah I get that too - click this link for an exmaple... https://www.google.com.au/search?q=shmup+ikaruga+lasers (https://www.google.com.au/search?q=shmup+ikaruga+lasers)

Looks like the forum software needs to be updated. The link at the bottom shows "Powered by SMF 1.1.5 | SMF 2006-2008, Simple Machines LLC" - not surprising there's some exploits when the software is 4 years old.

If I can recall correctly, there were some talks about updating the forums software some time ago. Perhaps 4 years ago?  ::)
