Sometimes when I'm reading a thread I'll change pages and it directs me to this crap!

http://www.badgerbadgerbadger.com/

What the hell is going on, is anybody else having this problem?

Example: https://xboxrepublic.forumotion.com/the-console-war-f1/got-both-systemsgot-ff-13-on-360-t3353.htm

I go to page 2 and it's directs me to that badger crap! WTH? It changes my page and i can't read or comment past page 1.

This happens on some threads not all, but it's extremely annoying.

I was able to get around it by disabling java, flash, and shockwave in Firefox. Then I could view the page without it redirecting me to badgers. Then it was just a simple matter of deleting about 70 posts.

Pathetic trolls are pathetic.

Probably some java script or flash script that automatically opens a link when it loads. The better question is why would someone go to the trouble of doing something like this if they have any life at all?

Very true, they have no life. The person who did this must be at least fairly intelligent to do this, if only that person could use their intelligence in better ways, the world would be a better place.

Doubt it. Who ever did it is probably a script kiddie. Info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Script_kiddie

There was no "hacker" it was a troll who posted a bunch of messages with a java script or flash script embeded in it. It was actually an easy fix and really no more serious then any other troll spammer.

As for security, this forum has plenty. Most forums just have to deal with troll attacks from all corners of the internet. The only thing we could have done was limit posting per minute, but I'd rather not do that becuase while it would hinder spammers it would also hinder regular posters.

The night when I was UStreaming, I came on here and this "Guest" had posted all over the place. I suppose that was him. I thought he had hacked the forum somehow, because Guests cant post, or even see regular forum boards.

It said "Guest" becuase we deleted his account and then went to task deleting his posts.
