Site security

Hi all,

There has been some sort of security problem with Neocolours, and we're taking the site down for a bit to deal with it. The main site has now been cleaned and reuploaded, and the forums should be back tomorrow (it is 11pm here right now and I've got uni at 9 tomorrow). I apologise for the inconvenience. The forum database has not been compromised and all your login information is safe. We will be resubmitting the site to Google to get a clean bill of health as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience!

Malicious Website?

I went to post today and got a warning from Firefox about Neocolours being a "Reported Attack Page!" in angry red.

It directed me to this page:

Notably saying:
Of the 4 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 3 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2012-02-28, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2012-02-28.

Malicious software includes 3 trojan(s), 2 scripting exploit(s), 1 exploit(s). Successful infection resulted in an average of 9 new process(es) on the target machine.

I'm very confused as to what might be going on there, any ideas? Is there any legitimacy in these claims, are they fixable, and is it something I should be worried about?

Hoban // WHAT NOW?!

*taps* is this thing on?

So I feel really odd making a post here when I'm not really SURE if something is up... but I asked Joey, and she had the same problem, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

I haven't been able to post to NC all day. Every time I post a reply, it loads a blank page and my post doesn't go through. Likewise, I haven't actually seen any new posts since I got home from work today (around 3 PM NST - it's now 8 PM NST and nothing new). I mean, I know it's a Friday Saturday and SOME of you have lives... but really xD

I thought I'd just, uh, post here to see if anyone else was having an issue, or if anyone knows what's wrong?

Site URL problems now fixed :-)

Hi guys - just to let you know that is back up and running as the URL for the site, and barring any major disasters everything will be shiny. There's an update on the forum itself, but because everyone will have been logged out because of the URL change (back), I thought best to post here too.
