Default Will RCU ever be fixed???

How about it mods? Will RCU ever get fixed and become more usable? We've dealt with the picture posting problem, which seems to have been resolved. We've dealt with server issues for what seems like several months with the problem apparently being intermittently fixed only to come back. NOW, this most recent rash of problem(s) with the Trojan issue. That seemed to be another server issue and appeared to happen depending on what server one was on. Now there is an apparent extension of the (?) same problem, which my system is responding to as a malicious script. Despite pop-up and ad blockers, I keep getting redirected to"http://www.xn8u.info/index.htm", which would seem to not exist, and which then results in my being redirected to a google page with suggestions for pages I might like to try(!!). This redirect happens on almost any forum page I visit. It takes a few seconds to happen, while an apparently slowly-loading ad (or script) loads, which then results in a re-direct. It has made reading the forums impossible and very frustrating. Just posting this question has been about impossible, requiring multiple attempts due to re-directs. Any chance of RCU actually hiring a real IT person, or is this now the norm for a previously great site?

Well, I don't think it's up to us Mods. We're also trying to work through the problems. All we can do is point it out to the Admin folks and let the IT folks work it out.

They will get it right soon. Please just be patient.

What you can do is report the discrepancies which will open up a ticket. This can be forwarded to the IT types. I would imagine that any input helps them look for the bugs.

When opening threads here, Malwarebytes is blocking access to IP 121.10.132.235 which is a questionable site in china.

I have been getting "hit" with the trojan problem also on RCU for the last couple of days. Not fun, but the security software seems to have taken care of it today though I got hit first thing when I came on board. Hope RCU can sort this out.

Soft landings,

Joe

I don't think so. Mine, at home at least, gives me the same thing. It was ok all day Sunday, but seemed to start over again in the evening. It was ok last night, though.

I do know that the RCU IT folks are aware of it and are working hard to clear it up.

Please be patient with this. I know it's annoying, but from what I understand, the so-called trojan is not a real trojan, but a segment of code that looks like an offending file, but is really not. I checked with my virus protection program and found out that it flags it, but it is not defined, indicating that they are really just taking precautions for unknown code or code that appears to be offending.
