Keep receiving emails with link to another site from "Gerda Pesswir in Logos 4"

I assume these are bogus.

Yeah that was weird. I got that too. If you search for the thread "portfolio upgrade" and try to get there you get to the same "THE SITE HAS MOVED" link that links off of Logos' site. Weird...

Yes, I posted this in another thread "Houston (Logos) we got a problem". My take on it is that somehow some of the posts on this forum have been compromised thereby forwarding to another site externally.  Some Logos programmer is going to have a project to do today me thinks.

Even weirder: if you look at the page source for the site that says "this page has moved" The text of the thread is still in it...how in the world is that possible?!? So earlier this morning I accidentally clicked the link...I didn't mean to, I was going to roll over and see the path and I clicked...

it's spam and porn links, don't click it!

By changing the Z index of the post to a (ridiculously) high number and overflowing the page padding that post covers up all the rest.

YO Logos!  Dave Ladiges or someone needs to kill these asap.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

The 6:53 post of the "Logos 4" thread is doing is the same thing: "Site has moved"

I have called Customer Service and reported the problem. They're going to tell their web folks about it. I suspect they're not in for work yet this morning, so it might be a couple of hours before it gets fixed.

I encountered the problem, also. I'm doing a full computer scan to make sure something nefarious hasn't set up shop on my hard drive.

If you note, the crafty spammer has simply added a small amount of html effectively creating a white box encompassing the whole page and then another box with his text in it. It seems like an easy enough fix, just disable the ability to post <div> tags.

seems that who ever is doing it, is still at it.  i'm coming across forum pages that I did just have access to (within 15 mins ago) and now it has that "page has moved link" on it.... :(

Yes, each one in which Gerda Pesswir is that last poster is hijacked.

All the Gerda posts should be gone as well as the account being banned now.

FYI, yes the links are working now, but the last post still has Gerda in them.

And that will probably be there for a while unless anyone else posts to those threads. (I'd prefer to keep the account disabled and banned rather than just delete it.)

Thanks for letting us know.  I was mistified that the one I started was hijacked and it looked so weird when I clicked it and it went to a site that sold the Anchor Yale Bible and other things when it was already on your site for sale.  I did not click further!!

I restarted a new thread on how to access English Lexicons on Logos 4.  It is so easy and great!!  AND I found the Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary for sale on your site hidden in the title:  The Christian History Library.  Just ordered it and can't wait to get it up and running!!!!!

Logos 4 is awesome.  Thanks Logos!!!!    Catherine

If you don't mind switching a program just to make use of a Dictionary, you can download E-Sword (for free) and download Webster's 1828 (for free).  The E-sword 1828 is super easy to use, just start typing the word in the "go"box and it scrolls down the dictionary as more letters are added.  Best of all this is completely free.
