  Official Elder Scrolls Fourms Hacked! - Off Topic
  Posted by: bloodreaver9 on 07-09-2006 @ 15:52
This News Item has been viewed 5,858 times
Be warned if you use the Official Elder Scrolls Fourms, about 4 hours ago someone possibly hacked into the forums and did something which people don't know much about at the moment. It only affects the people who use the default tan skin on the forums, once you get on there something is instantly downloaded onto your computer, its been said its a possible trojan. The admins are trying to fix this problem but stay away from the forums for the time being, I will post news when the forums are back up and virus free.

Thanks

Well, after a scan I have 11 viruses. Someone else I know has the same amount after they scanned....so it seems you get 11 if you go to the forums

Yes, I already said that it affects the people that use the tan skin...but you still get the virus if you log in to change the settings...

If you use Firefox you can also download the No Script extension and it will prevent the virus from being downloaded.

I am so glad I found this site tonight. I was wondering what was going on at Elder Scrolls forum tonight. When I went there my antivirus gave me a virus warning..After a half hour of cleaning up I seen fine now. How and why would someone do that.? Thanks for the heads up on this. I cannot imagine how many people this will affect..

Ok, I tried to get on again and got killed by viruses then my computer shuts everything down! One of my friends said they download the opera browzer and she could stop the virus script starting or something and she could change the settings to another colour. I've heard that one of the mods on the forums said that it should be fixed on monday when the admins are back...so atleast 8 more hours I would say...

God, stupid friggin' WoW players. They claim it has a storyline and them label Oblivion as a "grind" RPG.

Ehh. I never use the forums anyway.

Well...they haven't posted anything about it on the main site at all...which I think is very stupid and I don't want to go and check again and get 'nother virus. My computer is full of viruses now, I keep getting one every 5 mins! I really don't think they handled this very good, they should have taken the site down as soon as people started to get this virus, that way they could have saved literally thousands of people not getting viruses...
