sister site (trawlerforum) hacked?

Tried getting on TF from 2 different computers and on both all the categories except stickies are in a foreign language, appears to be Malaysian or indonesian type similar to Chinese or Japanese but definitely different. Anyone else noticed this? Has that site been hacked or is there something wrong with my computer? I have not made any changes to my PC. Has my PC been hacked instead?

Same for me. TF shows as a foreign language or at least symbols I don't understand.

The language is Korean, most of the text refers to gambling related topics and all of the posts are at or near the same time. Most likely a bot programmed to spam new posts, as older threads are untouched. Strict flood control might help prevent this; the bot changes user ID every 2 minutes.

Google, "".

We were not hacked.

3 spammers posted so many messages, the regular posts were pushed down several pages.

All is well now.

Adios, Dirk.
