    By reason of a hack-problem, the Maxthon Forum is temporarily offline.

    Last night, the Maxthon Forum was hacked using a well published exploit in IPB.
    The infection appears to be a standard smitfraud infection.
    The problems are solved and the forum is online again.

    We advise all persons that visited the forum the past 24 hours, to check their systems on the presence of malware pronto.

    Special thanks to wng_z3ro:)
