When I click any Clix Sense banner, link or similar, the page directs to a gayporn page!!! Twice the page opened, thanks God I was alone, but, I hated that. When I click my own link in the siggy, it starts loading, I can read the name, but, no pictures.
Two hours ago it opened and worked normally.

It's doing the same thing for me as well. I paused the ads for that site at my sites until it is fixed.

Update:

Hello Everyone, first let me apologize for the issues today. Over the last several weeks we have been the target of a hacker who I believe first created the bot csadviewer and then moved on to submitting ads that when a viewer opened an attachment that popped up they got infected and their PC was compromised. Today, this hacker changed our DNS to a wonderful gay porn site. They removed our websites and email and of course with it being Sunday its hard to get any support. My phone has been ringing off the hook and my email blowing up. Please do not call or write in. We're definitely aware of this problem.

PLEASE NOTE!!!!!

The ClixSense servers were not hacked and all of our servers are still intact and your account information was not effected. As I said above, its a DNS hack. It may take a bit for the site to come back online due to propagation but it will be back as soon as possible. I have a close friend who works with the FBI Cyber Crimes who I will reach out to later today and let them know as we're going to open an investigation on this.

Again, I am sorry this happened and it's certainly not the way I planned to start my Sunday.

Thanks

Today ClixSense link redirects to: https://www.google.hr/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=Y0bNV8mbEcSk8wen76-QDg

Hasn't it been resolved?

I got a bunch of stuff done there late last night, but now it's just showing a blank white page.  I'm on a full clean/clear out, and a comp reboot.

Is anyone else having this problem?  I'm thinking it *could* be due to IP's maybe being blocked now.  If anyone can get in, would they please conact Help Desk and ask?  You can PM me here and I'll give you my particulars.

This is getting quite a bit annoying.

 :ermm: Well never mind, seems like the idiot hacker is still having some fun.  I'm in now, and saw a posting about it.

Members, I apologize for taking the site offline without warning but it seems this hacker was able to find an exploit and was able to remotely change the names and balances on some accounts. Some of you will need to reenter your names. None of your personal account information was exposed. We were able to restore many account names but we did not want to restore this information from our backup because it would mean much longer time offline so we made the decision to have some of you re-enter your first and last name.

We understand this is a major inconvenience to all of you as this person is causing us much grief. But, on a side note, we've opened an investigation with the FBI and they are now investigating to try and find this person.

Again I am very sorry for all of this and please be patient with us. We are doing the best we can to restore things back to where they should be.

Thank you

The white page scared me a little.The hacker got to the forum and changed every username and topic title to the word hacked.I hope clixsense admin doesn't underestimate the abilities of this hacker because hackers get craftier everyday.

Seems ok now but hope it is resolved.
The forum is "under maintenance". I took a screen shot of my account after reading this. My name is ok on the site, but could be we might get lots of spam now :(

The this moment there are instructions to change password, but no email sent as pretended.

Most probably this is a TRAP, so better do not change your password with some new one for now.

Maybe the hacker expects that members will get irritated by waiting and decide to change the pass with anything new.

I will do nothing at the site and wait some incontestable  confirmation from the owner :(

The screen massage is not even signed and to me  it looks like a fake.

PS. Have not posted at the forum for veeeery long. Hi everybody  who recognize me and a big hug, friends. It is sad that I came here to post for such a nasty reason.

I got the same message that the password was changed, and to expect email.  I got the email promptly, double checked the headers, all was ok.  Logged on, then changed it to a much higher strength password.  I had already changed it when I was able to login earlier.  But this new one should do the job ok.

All the account infos, profile infos, etc. are fine.  And everything seems to be working ok.  Doing offers now, and being credited.  The add on is working, too. 

However, it doesn't hurt to keep shots after you finish up each day for a while.  Just in case.

Oh, and BTW, it wouldn't hurt to change your payment processor password...just to be on the safe side.

And hi to Ann, Nelli, MCF, Monia, and Heather.  :)

Hi Ann, Heather, Nelly, Sandy and Susy. Hugggz to all  :)!
Hope you are all fine! 

Like Susy, I got CS email, it looked fine..so I changed my password...made a copy of my page (poor me, I forgot how to take a screenshot  :( ). Maybe Susy could help  :D me. Tried to find the one written by Susy, but can't. It used to help me in the previous years.

I am only in a few programs, doing Donkey from time to time, but usually ClixSense every day, as I am upgraded there and do those tasks in my sleepless nights.

I still can't do PTC ads using Mozilla Firefox, doing them using IE and get credited, but, as I have not used it for years, am not sure  it is safe. For 2 days, since I started using IE, my husband's business mail is fulllllll of spams, found 80 of them today, usually have less than 10. I am a technical tabula rasa, so will need to ask my son who does not live here to update IE.

Can someone explain me how to solve this problem with ads using Mozilla Firefox...pretty please! I forgot everything about that.  I hate IE, in the past, it used to give me many troubles. I even don't know how to switch from IE after I do the ads, to MF...  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
