43rumors is back and on the new server (+ explanation of the malware warning)


We are BACK!!!!!

As you know yesterday a malware attacked a couple of servers in Northern Europe. Many websites were affected (not only 43rumors). When the malware attacked us it changed a small script which made you crash the browser. We located the attack location, blocked it and removed the dirty code. The problem was that google banned all the affected websites. We quickly asked for  re-approval from google but it took 10 hours to be back online without that WARNING message. And because we are smart (LOL!) we used that time to transfer the whole website on a new server! So now ladies and gentlemen you are visiting the 43rumors website on a 3 to 4 times faster server. It will finally allow me to upgrade the 43rumors theme with new option and at the same time we can fix some of the issues.

Please be kind and remind your friends and forum colleagues that we are back online. Also explain them that it was not a 43rumors problem only. We reacted very fast but google kept the warning for hours even if we were a safe website :(

Now I have to catch up with news and rumors. See you soon!

      Back, I mean! But posting looks strange, the previous comment left the page refreshing forever… let’s see how this one goes!

        Same thing happened with the second comment: Chrome status bar says: Waiting for 82.244……. (I’m not sure about the IP)

  • Duarte Bruno

    Let’s see how FF works…

    • Duarte Bruno

      Same thing happens with FF. Just wanted to let you know so you can fix it.

  • Agent00soul

    Looks OK in IE.

    • Agent00soul

      No, sorry, it didn’t. It timed out after I sent the message (IE8).

  • admin

    I am still fixing some things. Let me know if you find something else

    P.S.: Thanks for the help…you are amazing :)

  • admin

    Things do work for me very fast :(

  • Fishfishfish

    The format of the camera list on top is screwed in Chrome.

    • Duarte Bruno

      It looks OK to me and I’m on Chrome.

    • GreyOwl

      Also in IE9; it’s now running vertical not horizontal.

      • admin

        try to clear the cache. And reload browser! Thanks!

        • GreyOwl

          Thanks admin, problem fixed :-) Btw what’s happened to ‘Edit’?

  • arrow

    for all those having problems posting please clear your web browser’s cache.

  • Work fine over here (Ff, WinXP). And noticeably faster.

    But MirrorlessRumors seem to have a problem. But nevermind the bells and whistles! – I want more non-m43 rumors!! :)

  • eaa

    Looking good in FF 4.0.1 :)
    But yesterday 43rumors gave me the “MS Removal Tool” virus, even though I allegedly should be fully protected w/ a fully updated Norman antivirus/malware installed! Got rid of it now. Good you’re back, and congrats w/ teh new server/config! Keep up the good work :)

  • Bob B.

    Admin..I am not diggin the new format with the camera database taking up my entire screen and more when the site loads??????? If I want to go to the camera data base..I will go there. If I am l looking for rumors and news…why do I have to scroll down a screen-and-a-half to get to what I came to the site for???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
    Is this a temporary glitch?

    • Bob B.

      The camera database used to be a banner at the top of the page…much more functional that way!

      • Bob B.

        Oh..this only happens in Chrome…Firefox still has the camera database at the top as a banner.

  • kww

    I got the same MS Tool Removal Virus….

  • jocs

    Good that it’s resolved, I thought it was my laptop… phew!
