Jnanne sent me an email about an odd error message she got when visiting the site.

virus name: Exploit link to known exploit site (type 750)

I looked into it, and someone did do some malicious stuff to this site as well as other sites who host at the same place as we do.

The security hole has been fixed and I am going thru all the directories looking for infected files.

Thanks to an alert member, we are all safe from whatever the heck that was.

I just finish updating at least one file in every directory on every website that I have anything to do with, meaning not just Volition.com, but three different homeowners associations I help out by hosting their sites, and many more. And every one has lots and lots of subdirectories, which all had to be looked into.

While I believe in Karma, I would very much enjoy slapping whoever did this.

While you are at it, could you send the guy who invented automated computer answering phone tree thingies to purgatory to spend eternity trying to get through to St. Peter to be let out of purgatory?
