Forum Malware (Updated)

Update 10/20: I’ve updated the forum software and run a battery of anti-virus and rootkit tests against the system.  Everything checks out and I’m unable to reproduce the problems found by Google.  I’ve requested a review of the site to ensure no malware is being hosted on the forums.  Let me know if you see anything out of the ordinary!

I’m aware that Google has flagged the forum site as having had malware at some point in the last week.

First off, this doesn’t affect the main site.  The forums are located on a different host in a different data center.  So the main site should be fine and shouldn’t put anyone at risk.
I’m looking into the issue but I haven’t directly seen any of the malicious JavaScript that Google is reporting.  It seems that the malware was either temporary or has gone dormant on the forums.  I’ll be performing a deep scan for malicious scripts and making sure that the forum software is brought back up-to-date.
I sincerely hope no one was affected and will resolve the issue as soon as possible.

    Google still has this ‘ban hammer’ on your forums.

    Hey seriallos,
    Wondering if there is some limit on the number of logs you take in/keep in history? I wondered if raiding declined or inclided (at least people raiding with WoL that is) but got some weird graphs.
