    Default Very sorry about the Hack this morning

    This morning around 4am Hawaii time we were hacked again and someone installed a very malicious script which would trigger an auto download. If your computer was affected, please run your anti virus to scan for this file.

    If you don't have an antivirus, Microsoft security essentials is a great free tool

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...tials-download

    If you're on a mac, you should be able to download and delete the file in your downloads folder.

    If you have any issues with your computer due to the hack, please post them here and we'll all try to help you sort through it.

    I'm really sorry again. I'm currently working with some people to scan the site and remove any leftover nasty stuff as well as secure it from future attacks.
    Rayan, What you are doing?

    I give up with my PM box, just email ryan(at)ukuleleunderground.com

    YES Mahaloz!

    My guess is the hacker(s) doesn't play ukulele.

    No apologies necessary, such is life on the web I'm afraid. I know I speak for everyone when I say thank you for working on the site and fixing it when it goes down!

    ^ What he said.

    This just goes along with an article I read recently that said you are much more likely to get infected from visiting a "trusted" site that's been hacked than you are from visiting "dodgy" sites. Most of us know better than to visit warez and porn sites where such things are more common. But UU? CNN? Yep, it happens.

    rayan said it was a malicious script... all the more reason to run a browser like Firefox with the Noscript extension installed. I was browsing UU earlier with no issues, but after this happened I ran full scans with MSE and Malwarebytes and came up clean.
