Subject:Possible virus problem
Time:03:14 pm
I just went to link to something on my web site and I'm getting a trojan alert and can't access the front pages. Not sure what's going on here, and won't be able to check things out until I get home tonight -I'd be grateful if someone who has good virus protection in place could take a look in the meantime and tell me if you spot anything weird going on.

Really hoping this is an error, not my hosting company getting hacked, as happened a couple of years ago - although they fixed it in a couple of hours then.

The links that do this are
www.forgottenfutures.com
www.forgottenfutures.co.uk
I already know that I'm not getting this message on an HTML file somewhat below the top level, which is not called index.htm, so it's possible that someone has hacked the hosting company and replaced all the index.htm files, as happened last time.

Later - have a little more confirmation that there's a problem. Please DO NOT try to access the site!

Later still - as suspected, it was a wholesale replacement of index.htm across the site. I've replaced them all as a temporary measure, there will probably be a few bugs so please bear with me while I sort things out. Hopefully the immediate problem is sorted.

I've got NoScript installed, and neither page will render unless I allow javascript - is the javascript yours?

ETA: Google gives a compromise warning for the .com site: http://support.google.com/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&ei=hVUBUZXhEbKW0QWx5oHQDA&answer=190597&?sa=X&ved=0CDkQpwgwAA

There should be no javascript - okay, looks like there's been some sort of hack, I'll get on to the hosting company.

Fixed now, I hope, at least for the immediate problem. What was the source?
