    ROG.forum hack

    I don't know what just happen to me, I tried to get onto the forums about 15min ago And got a window with rog.forums has been hacked by ????. My PC scanned clean with a full scan but my rog link in chrome was renamed to hacked by ??????. . None of my other links have been changed. Has anyone else had this happen today ? Or have I picked something up that AVG isn't finding ? Thanks

    I manage to get back on again by typing rog.asus etc again into address bar..

    Yeah, if I'm using the ROG link in my browser, it's happening to me too... however, if I'm using the links from my emails about updates in threads i'm subscribed, it's working fine...

    I hope, it's just a bad timing from the hackers... it's weekend... but I'm sure that Asus people will take care of this as soon as they will be back to work!

    should be an easy fix but i think their response time is a bit slow (it's already been a few hours).

    this kind of web-based attacks could be prevented with simple measures, i wonder why they didn't do it in the first place.

    i know that people do need to rest but things like this can become big issues over time (even in the matter of hours). the sooner they get it fixed the better.

    i will suggest a change of password at the very least after this, too.
