    If someone has a way to get in contact with Larry, can you let him know his site has been hacked?

    Damon,

    I just checked the website and it seems fine now.

    wow - that was a fast fix - this morning every page had prescription drug ads.

    Cool.

    Seems like Starship Fantasy website is hacked again.
    Hope they get it straightened out.
    I mean, just because us pinball geeks are old and fat that doesn't automatically mean we need medical help of that kind.

    Seems fine to me, Loaded up normal.

    How is it hacked? Doesn’t seem any different to me.

    Huh.
    It was re-directing to an online meds ad page when going to it from a Google search result.
    Just tried typing the address directly and it is fine.

    Sounds like a DNS/ hosting issue to me.

    The pinwiki site will do this too, actually. Anytime I go there from Google it's a misdirect or no page, but typing the url directly goes right to the site as normal.

    That sounds like malware on your machine redirecting searches. Is it happening from other searches too or just SF (RCA1)/ Pinwiki (Frax)?

    Edit: Interesting, a Google search link brings up the pharmacy page, a DuckDuckGo search brings up the correct page.

    Google DNS translation issue. Only happens when visiting the top search result from Google although the URL is the exact same.

    There are hacks where code gets injected into websites and includes a redirect if the site is crawled by the googlebot user agent. Then that redirect link gets populated in google's search results.

    But, when you look at the site directly, it seems fine.

    The hacked page source code is:

    <frameset rows="*,0" framespacing="0" border="0" frameborder="NO">
    <frame src="http://hdtabsstorekeys.com/redirect.php?z=levitra" noresize="" scrolling="auto">
    </frameset>

    malware on your machine

    Not in my case. It ONLY happens with Pinwiki, not any other search through google or otherwise. I dunno about starship fantasy, but I'm not about to check it either.

    Saw this over the weekend.

    Yep, I've seen it happen. Seems fairly common on WordPress sites through an outdated or no longer maintained plugin.

    All fixed. It was a redirect when accessed by an Apache server.
