Title: Malicious redirects from curefans.com *Fixed*
Post by: dsanchez on April 30, 2018, 15:57:03
Our site is probably infected with a malware and sometimes when you type 'curefans.com' you're redirect to another site of unknown content. We are working on solving this issue and we will let you know as soon as this is fixed. In the meantime, make sure your antivirus is up to date, that's the best to be protected from this.

We have migrated the forum to another server and the problem mentioned above should be fixed. There are still some tasks pending completion:

1) Migration of avatars and attachments
2) Reinstalling the default Curefans theme

Will let you know when this is done.

Thanks!

This can indeed happen and has happened before. Not this time, hopefully. If you find anything missing, let dscanchez know!

@dsanchez
I managed a safety update for both computers. The laptop still has problems
to select the correct site and I have to use the navigation help of my provider,
and then it works. Well done, David. By the way, Forever fits perfectly for the
login area.  ;)

@dsanchez

I'm sorry to tell you that I still have problems with the login-process.
Every time my laptop informs me that the site is unsafe. I hope it's not
too annoying for you.  :1f633:

Yes, any site on the Internet using http:// instead https:// is "unsafe" for some browsers. We plan to move to https:// at some point but don't have a date for that yet. This is unrelated to the issue discussed in this topic and shouldn't be cause of concerns as you are not using e.g. credit cards on curefans.com

Then maybe fans who have this problem could just use a different browser?

For now I would just suggest to ignore that warning. Will start checking about https in the next days...
