    I have seen this on some other sites, but not so far on gbatemp. Basically, someone writes a long blog post and then when you're sitting there reading it the exploit tries to directly connect to your computer. I'm not sure how it works, but my DNS server went nuts after visiting the blog about 'reality' that has been ongoing here (the DNS server crashed a few times due to heavy outgoing requests). It seems a reboot got rid of the exploit. I have a pretty hard system to crack; so nothing was comprimised (that I know of). Just a heads up. I run my own DNS server so I could see the connections, but if you don't believe me go ahead and try it. I've seen this many times on certain torrent sites (in the same under blogs) in the past couple of weeks so I think it's a new technique.

    I'd love to see some logs of these hacking attempts from this site.

    blogs are raw text, it doesnt allow you to embed javascript or html or anything.

    My PC is full of viruses and RATs. I keep on stalking blogs. I guess I should stop doing that :(

    Or just nuke it from orbit with an ion cannon (aka format the hard drive).

    On a more serious note, it's pretty unlikely for a text-based blog to do such a thing. There's probably some other explanation.

    Well, if no one else is experiencing what I typed about then I'm puzzled. The only page I had open for the last few hours is this site. Odd.

    Or seriously look into your network's security. If you can't leave your computer alone without it getting wretched, that sounds like a serious problem on your end.

    Just to humor you, I checked each posts source in there. Every single post in that blog is plaintext aside from FAST's first comment, which has a single hyperlink.

    Either a rogue ad loaded (unlikely because we go out of our way to get unintrusive ads, which tend to be on ad networks/groups with fewer issues like that overall), or more likely, you have a problem elsewhere that just so happened to rear its head at that time.
