I was taken to a "Word Press" log in page when I tried to log in. It would not accept my name and password but it surely mined the data.

I figured it was part of a board change. Be forewarned not to give your password to a "Word Press" log in page.

Has anyone else had this problem? I am not seeing any hacks.

PT—

Looks like "they" hacked your computer not the board. Remember your mother warned about pissing off the wrong people.

Just saying.....don't give out your 'A team password' to a log in page that says "Word Press."

I use my weakest password for chat boards so no problem really.

Got the "Word Press" log in page again. I doubt it is my computer. Be wary.

While on the subject of hacking and such....

These are my recommended free programs for spyware and such:

Ad-Aware by LavaSoft
Spybot-Search & Destroy
SUPER AntiSpyware (I'm not so sure about this one to be honest)

Crap Cleaner
Registry Booster by Uniblue Systems (not sure it is free)

Zone Alarm (can be pain in ass at times - not quite free)


CNET is a trusted download site for free spyware programs in my experience

Get updates frequently
Do a daily scan with one of the programs


I have seen Windows Defender recommended (by a source I trust a little bit) but it will give all your computer data to Microsoft and Microsoft believes they own your computer for some reason. Still....I use it because Microsoft has access to proprietary code.
