I have not seen the message referred to but when I opened the link given by windsurfer, Norton Antivirus detected and deleted Bloodhound.Exploit.193 virus and a trojan. Please do not open that link.

These are advertisements Team-BHP earns cash from. You don't need to worry about them.

Sorry guys, Team-BHP (and a large number of other vbulletin forums) was hit by a virus earlier today. Our server was compromised, but thanks to the solid measures undertaken by the server administration, internal damage was negligible, and has been entirely reversed. Two of our tech support guys worked non-stop and have gotten Team-BHP back to "safe" mode. The process is yet underway and will take a couple more hours.

Regret the inconvenience caused. But as they say, the only server that is 100% virus proof is the one that is not connected to the internet . Needless to say, whatever needs to be done is being done. We're playing it by the rule book.

Someone should make a proper Firefox plugin to disable iframes in pages. Will solve half of the problems. Site owners can host ads on their own webspace/domain.

I last accessed t-bhp on 10 Dec and it was fine. But on 11 Dec my internet explorer just wouldn't open as t-bhp was my home page. Changed my home page to google and the internet explorer opened but when I clicked on any of the options it would close down automatically. I guess my laptop is now infected. Didn't have any anti-virus software on it.

happy infection.
Get your laptop scanned ASAP.

It seems that problem is solved.
Since morning, no more message from antivirus on my laptop.

Download Free virus scanner called Avira. Its effective.

Use chrome or firefox as they have better protection than IE

was on TBHP since morning, didnt see any such infection, have norton with latest updates on my system.

Later on during the day, noticed TBHP was down for maintenance, so went back to my other schedule. Anyhow thanks to this post, will check it for spyware now.

It was just a warning for those who are reading and posting in team-bhp 24/7 . I faced the same, luckily avast popped up the warning to abort the page. So, such times, have a break, have a kit-kat !!

OS : Windows XP pro
Browser : IE 8
Anti virus : Kaspersky Internet security 2009

Edit : No warnings from Kaspersky when i use Firefox ( V 3.05.15 )
