I haven't seen any sign of anything bad. Can you elaborate? If you could provide some screenshots of the messages you get, that would help out a great deal.

Saying that there is a virus is far too vague for the staff to act on, we will need more information.

It brought up one of those faux pages where it makes you think a virus scan is running.

For those who have experienced this issue, please provide the following details:
  • Your operating system + its version.
  • Your web browser + its version.
  • Your anti-virus software + its version.
  • Any warning or error messages given by your browser, operating system, or anti-virus software.
  • If possible, please also include page URLs this occurred on + screen captures.
Thank you for your help in addressing this issue. There will be a period of downtime within the next few weeks to provide updates to the site, and I will have Robotman give a formal announcement about the details as soon as possible.

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Browser: Google Chrome 12.0.733dev and IE9
Internet Security: Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 11.0.2.556
There were no warnings from either system.

It happened on the main page when I click on either the Stories or Images section. I'm afraid I did not have time to take a screencapture.

No error messages or warnings, just a straight browser hijack. The hit came as soon as fembotcentral.com loaded.

I've made an announcement about the problem here. I've also posted some tips that some people might find useful.

Thanks Deep Blue and Spaz for bringing this to our attention.

We will let everyone here know what's going on as this progresses.

Man, viruses suck.

Actually, I noted that my browser (the execrable Explorer) redirected me to obviously bogus scam-bullshit two days ago or thereabouts and let my computer do a system-restore while I was at work. So far no recurrances.

Had no inkling that our home here was the source, though. That's kinda disturbing.

Yet -- and it's a grave situation and the administrators have my full, absolute, unequivocal respect and indeed admiration when it comes to their response (and everything else, actually, for that matter) -- a teensy bit ironic?

UPDATE:
I have identified a string of malicious code within our PHP files which I can confirm is targeting those browsing this site with Internet Explorer. I am working to identify its origins so I may properly remove it. Until then, I strongly advise using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Win XP sp 3

Avast anti virus home edition 5.1.889

Spybot S/D latest version

Firefox 3.6.16

I've visited the site every day in the past week and haven't seen any problems.
