    Hi. I hope I posted this in the right section.

    I am posting to ask for advice on what to do about a possibly hacked forum. The board is here: h**p://www.xplanetx.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi (I blanked out the T's in "http" so it's unclickable). Basically, when members are visiting the site, we are getting popup boxes, such as the one in the screenshot here:



    We have a thread on this issue:

    h**p://www.xplanetx.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=1&t=000618

    At first I thought I could deal with it by advising people to use Firefox, run Hijack This, etc, but to be honest I'm not sure what to do. If this problem is serverside, should we contact the forum hosts? The problems are not affecting me as I'm using a good HOSTS file.

    Thanks for any help or advice you can offer.
