Official forum hijacked!?

I keep getting redirected to PHBB DISABLED http://jabbah.lunarpages.com/suspended.page/phpbb_vuln.html!!!

The message on the resulting page is

"The Following PHPBB Forum was disabled for security reasons. If you are the webmaster of this forum please contact support for more detail."

I don't know much about the inner workings of the web, is this maintenance, my browser screwed up or malicious actions by a third party? - Baz

I get the same thing. LunarPages is the Silo3D hosting company so my guess is that there's been a hacking attempt. I expect the forum will be back up as soon as possible.

I get the same message. Their nevercenter.com site is still up though.

Hopefully this won't mess up the forums. There were a lot of good threads there that I'm sure Silo users needed. Hopefully everything will work out.

Sorry for the scare guys - we're updating from phpbb to vbulletin, and the database is all switched over and everything is ready to go, just working on the template a little bit more to make it as pleasant an experience as possible - should be up and running today (July 6th).

Thanks for the info Jamchild!

happened to some other phpBB sites as well, it was something like a security thing in phpBB let it attack other sites.

Thanx Jamchild

I hope you did not change a lot on your site or make it difficult to brows around. I really like it simple and easy to get around the site.

Thnx for the update..

Cgtalk is vBulletin and you don't seem to have any trouble here so all will be well I'm guessing.

Ok, silo3d.com is back - we tried to keep the interface very simple (though i was disappointed at how hard it was to find a pre-made vbulletin template that was adequately simple :sad.

Not only is it pretty, it's faster than the old one too there's no obvious lag when you jump between each forum section now as it was before. I like that! hehe
Good work and congrats on the newly updated vbulletin forum
