Malicious Attack on website

(1/3) > >>

Bob Reed:
Thanks to the script kiddies we had our work cut out for us today, but all is well again.

fordgt40:
Well done and thanks for getting the "warning message" up - at least we knew it wasn`t us and something was in hand

Regards

David

Nice one Bob, and Jack also for the email :)

Did this propogate to CockpitBuilders' members? Each time of trying to log-in, it locked up the IE browser, and after terminating it, there were attempts to make changes to (using) Acrobat Reader.exe.

Normally, Acrobat Reader is not a part of CockpitBuilders as an requirement to use the site. After checking the Task Manager there were at least three-four instances of this exe file present. Terminated them all and that was it, but it still leaves the idea that something could happen and that it's related to this event.

Suggest everyone runs a full scan with Anti-Virus tonight, just in case...

No it did not. It was not that kind of attack. All your systems are safe. I have shutdown the Cockpitbuilders mail server for the time being as the server is still under attack I am on it.
