I subscribe to a specialist forum and have just received an email advising me that a new message has been posted. When I clicked on the link in the email, a web page opens up advising that I have been ‘haxored’ which I gather means hacked.
This page as far as I can tell is genuine in the sense that when I try to get into the forum via its home website address, I still get this same ‘haxored’ page. There is no problem when I access other websites or forums I subscribe to (e.g. this one).
Can someone tell me if it is my PC or the forum’s server that has been hacked, and if it is my PC, what I should do?
PS My PC acquired an adware infection a few days ago, though I don’t think the 2 problems are related as the haxored forum site was working OK until last night.
