An update on malware found at TweakTown - it's been fixed

TweakTown responds to malware attack on its pages and provides an update for its readers

| TweakTown News | Posted: Jul 26, 2014 11:08 am

Earlier today we discovered that TweakTown had been attacked with malicious code from rmr-group.com being inserted to most of our pages. We first discovered the attack due to a warning from Google Chrome. It's the first time this has happened to TweakTown in our long online history.

After having detected the problem, we removed all injected code from our pages. We are now running a full server scan to detect any issues. We are also changing all of our passwords and scanning our own personal systems for any issues.

 

We would like to apologize for any harm this may have caused to you or your PC. As a result, we recommend that all our readers run a full malware scan on their systems, as a precaution. It's unlikely any harm has been done, but it's better to be safe than sorry. We recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Microsoft Safety Scanner - both are free.

 

Thanks for your understanding on the matter, and we will do all we can to ensure this doesn't happen again.
