UnderGround Forums Malware on this site...

In an effort to get rid of the malware that some people are seeing on this site, I am trying to put together some screenshots of actual malware, alerts from malware software or anything that will help pinpoint the problems.

One issue is that when I create threads that include videos from one of our video hosts, Brightcove, many people are complaining of malware within the videos.

I personally have never seen malware within the videos I post and there are many of you who also do not see it - perhaps because you have AdBlock/Malwarebytes/etc running. But, there are many of you who have complained that there is, in fact, malware in the videos I post.

This site, to the best of my knowledge, uses 2 different ad platforms. One is used in the Brightcove videos and the other is used on the rest of the site.

For the next 7 days, I'll not post videos from Brightcove to try to see if malware continues in the absence of those videos.

If you care to, please post any screenshots of any malware/adware/etc. in this post. I will be collecting all of them so that I can try to get rid of all malware on the UG.

There are companies out there that specialize in solving problems like this.

If they gave a $hit to fix it, they would.

Juice is no longer worth the squeeze, about 7 years (or more) too late.

What is the whole purpose of your account? Is it just to mix in with actual posters on the forum and spam videos for revenue?

Plus why not just stop using a platform (brightcove) that has fucked over some of your members monetarily? Which is something that still hasnt been addressed.

Of course that is the purpose of the whole account but lets be fair and honest here, that in and of itself isn't a problem.  I'd much rather have threads with monetized videos than actual ads all over my frames.

Brightcove is a legimate service.  The whole issue was this site went about it in the most shady fucking way possible (auto-playing, hidden and still auto-playing, etc).

But I gotta be honest too.  Hit or $hit took all the blame for any and all malware regardless if it was coming from his posts or not.  And with the recent issues regarding Target_The_Gash, I think it was misplaced out of sheer coincidence with people like Target_The_Gash posting on those threads.

Youve been dead on with this so far. So I will trust your information. I wish they would get away from the platform that allowed them to be so shady though and start standing behind their words.

For those of you who have nothing constructive to say other than ad hominems, I really hope you're not trying to hurt my feelings. If you are, you are failing miserably, providing nothing positive, and are showing the community your incredibly limited vocabulary. Trolls gonna troll no matter what.

For those of you who actually see this as a real effort to try to get rid of the malware on this site, thank you. It doesn't go unnoticed. If there is any way you can help by posting screenshots in this thread, or adding anything to the thread that you think may help, I would greatly appreciate it. I understand malware is incredibly frustrating and I am trying to combat it.

I post videos and create discussions about them. That's it. I don't have anything directly to do with ads in any way, shape, or form.

For you nay-sayers, what I say doesn't matter, and that's fine, but you're not helping the cause in any way either. "Get fucked" (or worse) or "Hi Chris" does nothing but make you look like an angry kid in your mom's basement. You complain that this place sucks yet you are still here. I don't really get that logic.

I will continue to try to get rid of the malware on this site regardless of how much hate is directed toward me during the process. I have no feelings for you to hurt.

If this site really wants to address malware they need to do the following:

1) Implement server side input validation on ALL user posts.

2) Implement fckconfig.js (Or any similar library) and DISALLOW SCRIPT AND IFRAME CODE FROM BEING RENDERED AT ALL or get rid of the HTML Editor altogether

3) Give me a red name

You are the single biggest source of malware on this site.
