Just a quick note to let the powers that be know that the hackers are back.

I just tried to check out the latest posts on my android phone (using stock browser)and got redirected to what seems like a fake oprah mini site (i don't use oprah), which in turn try'd to instal some software (probably spyware)

A friend confirmed it happens on xscope browser as well.

Also: "Your version of browser Opera Mini has become outdated, the further work can be incorrect and lead to unexpected errors and failures! We recommend you to update a product to version 6.5"

Rofl. SOUNDS LEGIT.

Old exploited software is old exploited software. Here's a possible Fix.

To manually fix versions prior to vBulletin 4.1.3 and 3.8.7

Edit one line in class_core.php file located in /includes/class_core.php ; find the following line “define(‘YUI_VERSION’, ’2.7.0′); // define the YUI version we bundle” ; replace this line with “define(‘YUI_VERSION’, ’2.9.0′); // define the YUI version we bundle”
In AdminCP; Go to “Options” => “Server Settings and Optimization Options” ; find “Use Remote YUI” option and in the dropdown switch to a server of your choice, Google or Yahoo.
Might not be the exact exploit being used though, just one of many.

I wonder why all these attacks as have been happening as of late.
We're growing. The more traffic a site has, the more likely it is to be hit by teh robots. It's unlikely we're actually being targeted by anyone specifically, we've just got enough activity and are impressioned enough in Google that we get hit by teh robots a lot. The bigger we get, the more they hammer on the door.

I also get the fake opera page when using the default browser for my android phone.

the "work around" is to use a browser that gives you the option of a "desktop" or non-mobile mode. the exploit seems to targeting phonest so if your browser IDs as a tablet or desktop, it doesn't get re-directed.

im using skyfire browser and it has a button right at the top to swith to desktop mode (icon looks like a droid/computer monitor).

My android phone keeps redirecting me to that pile of crap and tries to download. On my pc I could see all the redirects in the last days as being blocked by No Script but today there's nothing blocked on the pc but android is lost...

Ditto on the phone, it happened to me at lunch today, still happening. No KKF addresses would load, it tried to download something disguised as a video clip onto my phone. Disabling Java, and all other plugins doesn't stop it from happening.
Redirects to a russian-language site about opera browser, "op-new-mobile.net"
Samsung Galaxy S, Android Froyo.

Currently on Chrome on Windows XP at work, it's working fine.

It's happening to me too and I have been suffering withdrawals all day at work. :scared4: I'm running Android 2.2.2 :( I know, I'm behind the times. I've been using the standard browser and opera mini, same problem.

From what I saw, it is some .ru website (russian???) that kept redirecting to another site and another site. Do you have any enemies in Russia, Dave?:D:razz:

The newest level of software has been sent to the host to install. It can take 24-48hrs to get done though. Hang on mobile guys,,,hang on
