RevitCity.com Attack Fixed

2010-12-10

I will never understand the motive of some people that they would attack a server, and attempt to destroy computers of people that they don't even know.

We were attacked by an unknown entity that exploited a code injection security hold that existed in our ad serving software. We have upgraded to the newest version of the software, which patches this vulnerability. We have heard reports from various sources that some users may have had computers compromised by malware that was being distributed by this attack. We apologize to the RevitCity.com community that we allowed ourselves to be exploited and used as a vessel of attack on the very users we exist to help.

To any users who’s computer was infected during this attack. There are tools that will help you remove the offending software from your computer. http://www.malwarebytes.org/ is one such software, the free version should remove the software from your computer. In some cases, you may also need to log into the computer as a different user and remove the hidden application data folder under the infected account (ex. C:\Users\Infected User Name\Application Data) to completely remove the offending software.

RevitCity.com has been around for more than 7 years, and this was the first successful attack against our site and I hope that it is our last. We feel that we have in some ways let our community down by allowing the site to be used as a weapon against our users. Again, we apologize to the users, especially the ones that were infected by the attack on our site.
