GMC Malware free
September 9, 2008
The malware which had been inserted into the forum template at YoYo Games’ Game Maker Community via an iframe was finally removed yesterday.
Today GMC administrator Chronic announced that an encoded and harder to spot link to the virus had also been removed.
And for those of you that disagreed with my critisicm of the YoYo Games blog and said people moaned when they posted and moaned when they didn’t – yes I am moaning. Where is the post from YYG informing users of the malware that infected their site or the fact that it has since been removed?

There. A little bit of patient was all that was needed.
One thing at a time. They sorted the problem, they will probably get around to posting about it when they have time. Give them a chance to do things.
Yes thats what they said to at the Dutch GMC where i’m holding a topic up to date about this.
However its weird because I did not visit the site after 12:00. Only at around 19:30 GMT+1 when there already was a topic here that the virus got removed.
Anyway I cleared my cache. Btw I see you removed a part of my comment. ^^
YYG have not mentioned anything about the incident at all.
There is no iframe at the GMC currently – it must be in your cache if you are still seeing it, “Apparently there was another link to the site hidden a little more cleverly, this has also been removed.”
AGAIN: THE FORUM IS NOT VIRUS FREE!
(LINK TO IMAGE). I got a pop-up to download some plugin under the name of “microsoft”.
Seems like the iFrame is back.
Yoyogames hasn’t posted anything about this/confirmed that the GMC is free. Google does say the site has no virusses anymore, but I dont trust that.
Weird that there isn’t a message. Anyway, i’m glad that the virus got removed.

Funnily enough, I was just thinking that. I dunno, maybe tips on how to make puzzle games ARE more important than users’ PCs.
