vBulletin software redirect vulnerability

Postby Sableagle » Mon Mar 12, 2018 9:02 pm UTC

Just a flag that this exists. A lot of people have found that vbulletin sites are redirecting to myfilesight . net without the typo or the spaces.

The site isn't flagged as harmful and, so far, everyone's reported zero hits on malware scans afterwards. What the redirect was meant to achieve isn't clear.

You may want to avoid some sites for a while, just in case.
Oh, Willie McBride, it was all done in vain.
