Please help, my users are getting spam/virus attacks when visiting

Hello. I'm hoping I can get some help. I love the software, it's really great, but recently some of my users have experienced some spam/virus attacks.

They have reported that their antivirus software is blocking downloads from sites such as "daysofyor" or  ""gloryhunterz".

Also, I can't seem to access the security page in the admin section. I just get an error.

Help would greatly be appreciated. Thank you

How do I make my forum safer against hacker attacks?

These should get you back on track :)

Also, reinstalling the SMF files may be a good idea.

Hi, thanks alot for your answer.

This page doesn't seem to work:

wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/How_do_I_make_my_forum_safer_against_hacker_attacks

Also, when I try to access the security section I get an error.

Is there a correct way to reinstall the files, because I don't want to mess anything up  :-\

...and fails, miserably. :(

READ MY SIG!!!!

Get the large upgrade archive.

http://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-0-2_upgrade.zip

Dearchive on your hard disk.

Upload all the files, except upgrade.php, to your site, overwriting what's there, now.

Note that this will mean that your mods will no longer work and will need to be reinstalled.

They'll still be in "Packages". They'll just need to be reapplied.

Thanks. I did re-install the files. I think it's working so far  :)
