Forum Prison Planet Infected with MarketMatch

Every Market Watch (without space) is being changed into MarketMatch.

Also every link like http://www.market (without space) watch.com/story/stock-market-will-blindside-investors-in-2013-2013-01-01?link=MW_Nav_NV

Is changed into http://www.marketwatch.com/story/stock-market-will-blindside-investors-in-2013-2013-01-01?link=MW_Nav_NV

This is not only with new posts but also ALL posts with Market-Watch have been somehow changed???

Like this one from December 23, 2011 http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=225254.0

Yep, Global Moderator @EvadingGrid did some quick fixing on the spammer hack. Permanent fix implemented later.

But was a good moment to clean up my own comp from malware and such to be sure it wasn't only me seeing the changes and thus possibly the cause of the altering.

Found mostly spyware on my comp I think. No big deal.

Optimus solved the last part of the puzzle.

Problem resolved by TeamWork.
