Xseed hacked?
« on: February 03, 2012, 02:13:28 AM »
I was just trying to go to Xseed's website and the main page is completely blank while trying to go to their forums redirected to some Canadian pharmacy website (which I'm sure is totally legit...).  Either they decided on a new business model or something is wrong...

Don't eliminate the possibility it's on YOUR end, not their's. I had a router for awhile that kept getting URLs redirected, I'd try going to Amazon only to wind up at MySpace for example. Try scanning your computer or searching online about your router (and upgrading the FW if possible.)

EDIT: Forgot to mention, but I did try Xseed's page first before replying, and it loaded fine for me.

When I Google search it, Google lists that it may have been compromised. It also does not load for me.

Yeah, forgot to check the forums. I guess they were hit, quickly fixed the main page, and the forums are taking longer to fix (or it's a "in the morning" thing.)

OK, that's weird, the problem seems to be partially on Google's end.  I wasn't typing in the URL, just googling it.  Yet the address they claim to take me to is the right address.  But if I click on Google's link vs. typing it in directly I get completely different results.   Also, Google is also claiming "This site might be compromised" in their search results...weird.

And yeah, the forums are still down.  Something must have happened.

Xseed has been having serious site troubles for a few weeks. I think it started out as a DDoS attack but if their twitter is any indication, it sure as hell isn't an easy fix.

People suck.

They have been trouble with this pharmacy for longer than a few weeks. There is some serious spam on their forums from them.

Well whatever the case, it's been going on awhile.
