QuoteThen I guess everything is happening because of malwares. Any ways I can fix the quote issue?

In all likelihood, fixing the malware problem with fix the quote issue.
But others are too facing this quote issue. Even on smartphones. (No chance of malware on a Nokia)

Quote(No chance of malware on a Nokia)

Any device on the internet is potentially vulnerable, and yes there have been hacks on Nokia devices in the past.

It may be that you have something wrong with the site as well; it works fine out of the box - do go back and have a read of the first page of this thread, where the list of modifications is discussed, and that the code posted for ads is likely also related, so if the ad code is removed/disabled, does it work then?

Well, Not. Android and Windows Phone 7 devices have got a few security problems but Nokia/Symbian is still safe, I can confirm that being a Symbian OS Modder. (I even worked for Professional Nokia Hacking Team, http://pnht.org)

Is there any way I can scan my site and repair affected files?

There's no automated way of scanning a site for malware, at least not a thoroughly reliable one.

The quickest method is to use the large upgrade package (just for the version you're already on) which will replace all the files with known good ones.

Ohk, Got it.
Should I change FTP Password etc too?
+ any good malware removers?
+ Will iPage ban me if I tell them My site got a malware attack? (As I use shared hosting)

And, Thanks for helping me! ;)

It has nothing to do with your site so iPage cannot ban you.

Try MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
works perfectly fine on my pc :)

Or maybe try Microsoft Security Essentials if the above did not solve it.

It's me again.  ;)

I'm not having any problems loading the forum on my computer.  But I am a computer tech, so I do have quite good security on my comp.  I'm just confused at all the problems our users are having since the upgrade.  Now some report everything works fine.  Others report increasingly slow load time (on both pc and mobile), eventho other pages/forums load fast.

I have tried disabling the ad mods, but that didn't change anything for the users.  I've also disabled hostname lookups.  Any other suggestions?

I was reftering to 008Rohit who asked for good security programs.
What security programs do you have?

Hi, I'm using Tapatalk on my RC4 and users who use Tapatalk to access SMF via iPhone or Android did not experience any problems manifested in the RC4 security issue. SMF owners can install Tapatalk for free, but users have to buy it at appstore or android market.

I'm not connected with Tapatalk service from any business point of view, this post is just a personal experience regarding RC4 security issue.

Personally, I use Webroot.  They have the best anti-spyware in the business.  Plus I use Firefox with NoScript installed as well.

Nobody has "the best".
And anti-spyware alone is not enough. You should at least have a combo, the one I mentioned does not kill each other to decide which one goes first and do their job really well. As IT expert you should of have known this.

It's not just an anti-spyware.  lol  I'm not that dumb.  ;)  It's a combo.  But I do take other precautions as well.

Got the problem fixed.  It was indeed malware.  I just reinstalled the forum, and it seems to be loading fine.  Thanks for all your help!   :)
