    This is what I see as the "sidebar" to the right of the main forum section list.

    Logged in, logged out, rebooted, no change.

    com824.com seems to be a casino site (checked on a sandbox machine...)

    Cheers

    Ok, it's not a hack, it's a bot attack. Joy.

    All the messages seems to be contained to "Readers Rides".

    I am having the same issue when selecting the "new posts" box and the "side bar". The text seems to be in Chinese, or some other weird language. Checking the "new posts" there appears to be hundreds of junk posts made during the past few minutes. Someone really doesn't like the RS. :mad:

    Lancashire bikers tend to rally at the Trough of Bowland where bikes are parked on a gravel/ soil shoulder and often there are up to 60 or 70 bikes in summer, in September/October some no mark went and spread a vaste amount of panel nails along the shoulder of the road, this is to target bikers.

    Bring back death by lethal injection,

    Do you think it's to harsh a punishment :( ?

    Actually death by lethal injection would be too quick, I would take all those panel nails and insert them one by one into the offender, starting with insertion under the fingernails, toenails, private parts then all available areas of free flesh :D

    Just making sure everything is removed, I am also deleting all private messages sent by the 4 spam users so don't be alarmed if these conversations suddenly disappear.

    Thanks for your patience guys

    Thanks Andy. That really helps. The hackers should try out the the GS forum for a while. ;)
