    Default Attention Anglers Forum

    Can someone who is responsible for this site explain to me why when looking on this site my young cousin who is a young keen angler has to put up with adds asking if he wants a good fcvk, and also porn pictures. My cousin is only 11.
    You are responsible for the integrity of your (this) site, no excuses. If I don't hear anything from you then I will be contacting the appropriate ombudsman about this. Your site has been compromised for months now, totally appalling administration.
    If I don't here back from you on this and get assurances that this will be resolved then I will assume that you are quite ok about promoting sex and pornography to children, remember your site and what transpires on it is your responsibility.

    I don't get these ads popping up on here, I must be doing something wrong!

    Seriously though, there's a button at the bottom of this page "contact us", send a message direct to them.

    There is but I want everyone to see what's going on here, as if most folk on here don't know already.

    I imagine its something to do with your firewall. I'm at work and there is certainly never anything remotely dodgy come through on the web page due to works firewall.

    I'm currently at work and having issues with it, also when I am home, besides, it's the responsibility of the site owners to ensure integrity of their site. Manipulation of firewalls or other settings should not be necessary on my part. Will be passing this for investigation the the appropriate organisation to advise on shortly. The mere fact that they have chosen not to reply indicates they are somewhat sympathetic (or don't care) that under age folk can see explicit material.

    They are scum who own this site, absolutely no one has replied to me on this matter. Prepared for youngsters to be exposed to all sorts, tantamount to pedalling porn / pedophilia activity

    I noticed the forum and website are compromised. The webmaster should seek some help if he can not manage this. There are lots of people on here, shame the admins don't give a [email protected]@k. I would of host this for free on my servers and make sure this won't happen again but now probably the content is compromised and nothing can be done. The website has link/sql injection from some Russian "boys".
    @users: Use addblock (https://adblockplus.org/)for temporary browsing the forum until the webmaster decides to sort it out. Use malwarebytes if you start having serious issues.
    @webmaster/admin try and run a antivirus scanner on the server I see you are using cpanel, there are lots of tools to do that or ask the server owner to run clamav on the OS if the server is compromised try to migrate to a clean server(clean the content first).

    Good luck.

    Also webmaster/admin if you really want to get rid of the spambots on the forum try to configure captcha in an efficient way:
    here is a good article to read: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2122696

    Not trying to be a smartass just wanting to help.

    They stopped caring when they sold all the lakes this is just the last piece to get rid off and if they dont do anything it will just naturally die because no one will bother

    I get the same, iPad, iPhone and Laptop. The site is full of spyware and malware, and nothing is getting done about it. There is almost zero administration as said.
    I've stopped one of my grand kids coming on here now, as all he sees is porn adverts.

    Been a member since 2001, was an ace site back in the day, learnt lots and had some laughs too. Not that it matters to anyone but this is my last post ever on here.

    Good luck and good fortune to you all and most of all tight lines

    The lack of response from Admin tells its own story.

    I only come on this site on my laptop npw where I have adblock installed. For some reason the adblock does not work on my Ipad so wont come on here using that.

    This sites days are numbered...

    Yep done with it, tried to put up with all the pop ups and ads, but its proving to be too much of a ball ache to use!

    Shame really, but its quite obvious that those running the site have also had enough or they'd have done something about it!

    Apparently they have only been notified fairly recently!!!!! See my thread of recent weeks..."Getting hacked off" 24/5/17
    In Portugal at the mo and the Portuguese virus detector I'm using has stopped me writing 8 times owing to pop-ups on this site.
    Agree with All previous points made.
