I replaced the main index.php and portal.php files from a backup I made in October.

Can you all test the site again and see if you get the same problem about downloading the .pdf file please?

Access to the site seems a bit faster now.

Well, unfortunately the hackers got the better of MyMPxPlayer.org and managed to take down the whole server last night! Sad

The server had to be rebuilt but luckily the files were also recovered as well.

The site's back up now after spending about 8-9 hours with Webair getting it sorted (and with only 2 hour sleep last night). Luckily Webair staff were awesome and rebuilt the server and got the site back up again.

I'm begging the hackers to please STOP TRYING TO HACK MyMPxPlayer.org. We are not a commerical site and this is a FREE community based site with a great bunch of members. Please don't ruin it for everyone by trying to hack the site. Please use your time for something else.

IMHO I think the spamming, the pdf download and the hacking are all connected in some way.

Someone was trying to profit in some way from this site's success and when they got rumbled, didn't like it, hence the hack.

I think the .pdf thing was a way of measuring how many different users visit this site to see how spamworthy MyMpxplayer is. Idea

yep, more of a spyware, but it did seem to be causing the site to slow down and we would probably see an increase in spamming on the forum if action wasn't taken.

Anyone who has visited the "mp4users" forum recently will know how bad this can get if it gets out of hand, if fact mp4users has been completely taken over by spambots due to the admin abandoning the site.

Agreed.
Saw some news article about spammers who were prosecuted by the Police for spamming and apparently they were making millions of dollars from spamming!

They just don't care who they affect though.

Hi everyone,

Is anyone experiencing any problems with the site or getting any odd looking file to download from this site?

Is the site also running any better?

Look forward to your feedback.

I think the same problem is back again, I just got this .pdf thing again, only once when I first went on the site today.

Thanks knob for the update.

I checke and did find some 'dodgy' files modified again. I'm still not sure how they're getting in. I've deleted it already and going to try to restrict some file permissions to see what happens.

Please keep me updated and let me know as soon as you see it again.
