Thanks for the FYI guys.

I haven't experienced any of the stuff you're reporting but obviously it isn't expected behavior.

To confirm, you only see this when you access the forum from the homepage?

Can anyone experiencing this please let me know the following:

What type of device? (computer, tablet, phone)
What type of OS? (operating system i.e. Windows, Mac)
What type of browser? (internet explorer, chrome, safari, etc)

:thatrocks:

Laptop/Windows/Chrome. Flashes right before the homepage loads. Doesn't happen every time.

iPad running Safari on the Homepage. I think maybe I've seen it on the forums too since this is where I land 99% of the time.

A paragraph of text flashes up before being replaced by the main background graphic. It seems to happen when the browser cache does not have the page elements stashed and it takes time loading things fresh.

What is the point of hacking like that? There's no link to click. Just a fraction of a second of text flashes up. How does the hacker benefit?

Probably SEO hacking. Checkout this article http://seobullshit.com/hacking-seo-beware-crap-hats/

Interesting. Doing a google search of splitboard.com for "viagra" brings up this: http://whobis.com/splitboard.com

A lot of outgoing links are for payday loans, viagra, cialis, etc. All the classic stuff. It's like back in the day when you could increase your page rank through putting 'search terms' into the metadata for the web crawlers. I assume this is just a more sophisticated way of doing that? Full disclosure: I know almost nothing about web authoring. :)

My guess is that either it hasn't been addressed or if it has, it hasn't been completely removed.

It's the prior.

Hoping to have it dealt with and the exploit removed by the end of the day...

This morning when I logged in with Firefox I was redirected to a page that registers domain names. I checked to see if it was a browser problem and used safari with the same result. I posted a screen shot of the landing page on your FB page.

Maybe the overnight "bengals" banter has something to do with the problem?

I'm logged in on my mobile device, so there's hope.

It is an JavaScript, it is in the main code of the page, it is still there. Viagra and so on... after the page loads completely it dissapears, being overlayed by the page. See the source code and find viagra...

Philip.AK it contains links :wink:
Will post a photo of my phone with the page not fully loaded where you can see the whole text.

HTC HD2, Windows Mobile 6.5, Opera browser - for you Chris :wink:
