Title: FSP website hacked by spammers
Post by: JasonPSorens on July 13, 2011, 08:16:44 pm
The FSP website has been hijacked by spammers.  It looks as if it could be the notorious iframe exploit. Do a Google search on "free state project" and look at some of the freestateproject.org page titles. You also cannot click through from Google into the website, which is obviously a huge problem.

After Googleing iframe a bit, I see that this exploit has been around a long time. 
Most writers recommend  the security on SMF needs to be tightened as well as the host computer security.
Some web hosting companies are denying the problem. 
Where is the forum hosted?  Are they being helpful?

Mary had a website that had malicious code inserted via iframe. Her website was blacklisted by Google before she found out. So the consequences can be pretty serious.

Looks as if the spam issue has been resolved; Google still is wonky - you can't click through directly from a Google link.

I've been keeping my mouth shut about the security holes I've seen in FSP and FTL/FK hosting infrastructure, and will continue to do so, since the last time I've checked no one wanted to hear it...
