TNS JavaScript malware
« on: 20/05/2016 19:59:46 »
On my android tablet I have had to disable javascript while visiting TNS since it redirects to a site telling me I have under 5 minutes to click install or all my data and passwords will be toast. It appears that soime toerag has injected code into the forum.

I can assure you that there is no malicious code here. We keep a close eye on the files that are serving this site and we are monitoring for changes. If anything tries to modify the source codes we know about it. That said, the ad platforms could be hacked as alluded to above, but there's not much we can do about that. At the moment all seems kosher though...
