Thanks for fixing it so quickly, Kyle! I changed my password, cleared my cache and cookies and haven't seen any further messages. After running a spyware and virus on my computer, all is well.

Hmm....I wonder if this is related to the APC problem a few days ago?

Does the planted tank forum db store passwords in plaintext or are they hashed?

Hi Kyle,

I appreciate the warning - thanks for the quick action.

I updated my password from my phone, but when I viewed this thread from my PC my Symantec antivirus/antimalware software reported:

HTTP Phoenix Malicious Toolkit Activity detected

I think there's still a disturbance in the force!

It's standard that these Bulletin Boards are hashed.

IS it me or the Forum is really slow/stalls randomly?

Hello
my earlier posted reply doesn't appear, thought I would try again, sorry if it ends up being repeat...

Went to open Planted Tank site at 8:30 pm 9/11 (directly, not thru link in email) and when the home page opened, Symantec informed me that "An Intrusion Attempt" had been BLOCKED. Thought it was coincidence at first, but noted other's comments thereof.

I explored further in Symantec and found the following information.

"An intrusion attempt by [my computer] was BLOCKED. Application path DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUMEI\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORE\IEXPLORE.EXE"

Additional Details:
Risk Name: HTTP Phoenix Malicious Toolkit Activity
Severity: High
Attacking Computer: [my computer's name] (my computer attacking my computer?)
Attacker URL:
Destination Address:213.155.18.57, 80
Source: [My computer's IP address, I think]
Traffice Description: TCP, Port [....]

Seems to have successfully blocked for me (and is not reoccurring), but a further warning to others might be good (to ditch their cookies/internet history, update their virus protection and check their firewalls). Oh, and I haven't visited the site in month or more and pretty much ditch my cookies/history every week. But I have the planted tank.net as a home page...

Getting some sort of message about phoenix hardware and malicios sitr when trying to view pm. I signed off my computer and shut it down for the night just in case. Cookies cache and password were all reset. H

I had to comment on this line of awesomeness. BTW Thanks Kyle for the heads up and the hard work. I so far am not experiencing any issues. *knock on wood*

I change my password for here, changed my paypal pass word just to be safe, and cleared my cookies/browsing history. Running malwarebytes now to see if anything checks out. My MicroTrend Pc-Cillin checks the system twice per day and it has detected nothing.
