Asalaamualaykum:

Word of warning to those that have Ummah forum accounts.

It has been attacked by the JSCoinminer Virus.

Please update your antivirus programs and stay safe.

* Notification came up on Norton Antivirus and I cannot log in to my account.
I have took a picture of the warning but for some reason I cannot upload the pic

I am trying to upload the screenshot from my laptop but IB says 5.4Meg is too big of a picture to upload.

Edit: The trojan is still there. Kaspersky has detected a trojan.

Long time since I have been there. Hopefully I have no virus on my PC. Can Windows Defender detect such viruses?

And Allah :swt: knows best.

@Simply_Logical

:sl:

Its been almost a week that Ummah is down though such break downs had occurred many times before but not longer more than a day as in my memory.

This time its really serious, it seems. The probable reason in my mind is some one (from some country) had done this (attack) who are dead against ummah since ummah allows comments against them freely without deleting or banning them when ummah is also banned there (in that country) i think. So Islamic sites must be careful and be prepared against such attacks. IMHO , (don't know whether am wrong)


p.s . I know not much about computers i never use any antivirus for many years though pop ups (even the bad ones) have become a norm on my screen which i have managed to live with :omg: (sabr) :D

People get banned on that website from left to right. So, maybe one the banned users is responsible for the attack. But, who knows it could be one of the people who does not like Islam.

I am not sure how it goes with the mobile version but in general you can edit your posts when you are full member and that´s when you have made 25 posts.

Wow so accommodating here-diet cookies too (though couldn't they just be "healthy cookies" am not on a diet just trying to eat better and exercise lol)

On a serious note I am worried the land of Ummah forum might be lost forever (its been almost a week weve been lost without help) so we might have to apply to be granted citizenship of Islamic Board :hmm: Alhamdulillah the citizens on this board are very kind to us poor unfortunate beings so I am sure we will build friendships eventually..i need to branch out rather than only the posts about UF I think.

Well, be patient. Damages might be serious after virus but surely the Ummah will rise again. We will make dua for your safe return back to home (but of course we hope you don´t forget us and visit here sometimes).

There is nothing wrong with some cleaning. You can borrow my bucket.

It looks like the Ummah forum is back now. Apparently, it wasn't the virus that brought it down, it was frozen backup process.

FYI info reason why it was down last few days some backup processed hung and took the server down

Wasn't down to virus or anything

http://www.ummah.com/forum/showthrea...=1#post7504367
All UF members who came here during the last few days, we would really appreciate if they choose to stay as active members here as well.

They have upgraded to vB5. I thought they were going to use Xenforo.

vB5 is known to have a lot of bugs.

We made the same mistake in 2014, by upgrading the forum to vB5. See these threads from back then:

Server migration and forum upgrade

Server migration and forum upgrade

Forum problems


Then finally we came back to our senses and reverted it back to vB 4.

Reverting back to vBulletin 4
