Combat Garage Hacked & Forum Link Hijacked By Malware?
 
Trying to access Combat Garage resource from homepage of my old mobile phone was rerouted to various other websites . Nothing to do with CarWars or SJG . Then when trying to access this forum afterwards I got a malware notice when using my bookmark etc & then even Google searches rerouted me to similar business & gossip websites .

One other person has had the same problem & has cleaned the virus off their device . I couldn't I FF my ancient phone so have gotten a new one .

Thought I'd give others a heads up to potential problems because of this .

Not sure it Combat Garage can be saved , but SJG/Car Wars link that's attached to it can be antivirused or removed to prevent unsuspecting people from be attacked to .

Thanks .
