Hi, I've noticed today there is a load of garbled text at the top of all pages of the forums.  Is everyone getting the same?  I'm using Firefox but also tried IE11 with the same result.

I see it also with Forums and Members using Firefox 30.0, Opera 12.17 and IE8.

All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.

I see the same thing using Firefox, Pale Moon or IE.

With the exception of the address looking odd in Pale Moon.  Firefox and IE show the address as normal.

Guess I should have resized that screen shot.

Hey there jonuk76, thanks for posting, as I *just* woke up here on the Eastern Seaboard, logged in and saw the same thing.

 

I'm using FF in Linux Mint and I'm seeing that also...strange.

 

 

I was dealing with some obnoxious variant of the Win32 Google Toolbar yesterday afternoon on the Windows-side of my machine when I came across this and thought, "hmmm, that seems odd..." and figured it was my machine.

 

Wait and see, I guess.

 

Good morning to everyone else, btw.

I'm not sure what happened, but I hear Grinler knows about this already. Seems it happens on most browsers.

Working on it. Should be fixed and working on figuring what's causing it. Most likely a PHP issue.
