    Default Hacker attack - Warning!

    AskGamblers.com experienced a hack attack yesterday.

    Our ads server was hacked with some malicious scripts which causes the browser warning message.

    It's been successfully resolved after just 2 hours, but this should be a warning to all of you that you could be a next potential target.

    If you use Open-x banner management system, protect yourself and prevent attack by changing your password to a stronger one.

    As we can see in our logs, this is not human intruder, but BOT which can infect any poor-protected Open-x system.

    Quickly thanks for the heads up. But like every year August is one of worst months for malicious web activities.
