S4GRU Google Search Forum Redirect Hijacked

Recommended Posts

I just clicked through to this site from google and it redirected me to some url4short.info l domain address.  I had the same problem with a forum I admin.  

 

 

If you want to test it for yourself you can open an incognito/private browser, go to google and search for something that will bring up results for this site and then click the link in google. You should be redirected too.

 

It will only happen once.  Once you visit the site once it will no longer redirect you unless you clear your data or use a private browser window in which case it does it every time.  It will also only do this when accessing the site from specified search engines, not when accessing the site directly with a bookmark or typing the address.

 

I don't recall exactly what happened on our site but it was something about permissions for some php file or something.  I just admin a forum, don't do the computer stuff.

I have also had this happen several times. This has occurred on two different computers in my case.

IP Board has completed a security upgrade that should resolve this problem.  Let me know if anyone should discover this happening ever again.  Thanks!

    • So here's my crazy prediction:    I believe they'll wait that long to ensure that basically all of AT&T's customers will have phones capable of doing LTE in CLR, and WCW's customers will all be VoLTE capable. In addition to the obvious "acquire one company at a time" thing, even though WCW is tiny in comparison with Sprint.
    • You need to be concerned with TMobile going forward and not Sprint. That brand is obviously being killed so there is nothing to worry about. If rumor pans out, the Sprint brand will be all but retired on August 2nd.  You're a TMobile customer now. We all are. 
    • Doesn't surprise me one bit. Look how B/n71 is deployed in NYC - it's built out to make their 5G coverage map look good, but otherwise provide no real benefit. 
    • I had another question. I saw that Sprint was selling the Oneplus on the website. The store told me I need to make changes to my plan and I cannot buy the phone outright. I have the family 1500 which is a very old plan. I don't want to make any changes to my current plan so I may not be able to buy the phone from Sprint.      If I buy the phone directly from oneplus I saw it said Verizon, t mobile and AT&T. Will this work for sprint too even though it is not listed on the  site but says T mobile? 
    • The OnePlus 8 phone is good post-merger. The first 5G phones such as the Galaxy S10 are obsolete.
