    every time I load a page, the file 0000cb6b.js gets deleted by mcafee (flagged as JS/Downloaded-AUD). Is it just me? 21st Dec @ 01:20 GMT

    I'm getting some suspicious behaviour from my anti-virus as well.

    Has the site been infected?

    Most definitely. An obfuscated JavaScript in the forum header (between "My Friends" and "New Messages) that generates a hidden iframe which in turn loads a JavaScript from bidwm.info which in turn tries to serve infected PDF files to the user.

    Ah, I've encountered that before on this forum software.

    I prefer vBulletin, really.

    just to clarify, if you didn't get a pdf opening, nothing to worry about, correct?

    Or am I going to have to install another Anti-Vir (Just wiped my system a week ago) and watch my performance go to shit again.

    You guys should be fine, especially those of you using non-IE browsers and those not running Windows. I managed to remove the exploit soon after it was added. If you are still concerned, I suggest doing a virus scan just to make sure.
