FSGenesis Site Problems? Virus?

Recommended Posts

Seems to want to install a program and I seem to have picked up a nasty. Maybe unrelated though and AVG has dealt with it I think.

Yeah,I tried the site and Avast caught the a sign of a trojan all right:"Sign of "JS:IESlice [Trj]" has been found in "http://all1count.net/strongnew/019/exp3.htm" file."Better look out, the site might be hacked.Ulf B

The site runs an ActiveX control from Microsoft.You are getting a false positive from bad virus definitions.Did you submit the suspected file to AVG & Avast as they request?

I'll admit, that javascript is pretty well obfuscated with the old eval and unescape methods.

Hello,The portal.fsgenesis.net site has during the past 24 hours or so been the victim of a recently discovered vulnerability in the pnPHPBB forum software involving an SQL injection exploit, so I have shut it down temporarily until I can get rid of it. Further research has revealed numerous other sites running this particular forum software that have been affected, too. The low-life scumbags who seem to delight in perpetrating this sort of senseless cyber-vandalism disgust me and, IMO, should be castrated with a dull, rusty knife.The whole FSGenesis operation is not affected, only the forum software. The FSG Store (fsgenesis.com, on a completely different site) is running normally and, most importantly, safely, as usual.Service and support inquiries in the meantime should be directed to store@fsgenesis.com or support@fsgenesis.com.I expect to have a new support site and forum up and running within two or three days.Thanks for your patience and understanding . . .-------Justinhttp://www.fsgenesis.netHigh Quality Scenery for FS200x

Sorry to hear it Justin and hope it gets fixed soon. I was right to let people here know then.

Hey Justin,Hope the problem gets sorted out without too much of a headache. I don't know why anyone would do this to you, you've got a great product and great customer service. My Galaxy membership at FS Genesis is the backbone of my FS9 & FSX flying fun.All the best.
