    Modelwarship.com forum has just been hacked, in a very similar way we have been not so long ago. Is this a pattern? Hacker hobbyist?

    Could be, the other club I frequent using the PHP bulletin format, The Cobalt Club (Old Time Radio) was hit a few weeks back.

    There was an exploit for php - the scripting language used in this and many
    other forums - which let the bad guys into cardmodels.net and a lot of other
    php driven web sites. It sounds like the site admins haven't installed the patch for php to stop this happening. Alternatively it could be a new php exploit which hasn't been fixed yet.
