Update: The issue’s been fixed over at MCWResearch. Someone got in touch with the author and he fixed the problem before going to get belay certified. That’s rock climbing terminology if you don’t know, and I’m jealous. I haven’t been in any shape to go climbing in a few years. And I’ve been told I need to update some of my own code too, which may be what I spend this afternoon doing.
Update 2: Why didn’t I update sooner? It took me all of 30 seconds after I logged in to find the link for an update, click on it and be done. Thanks BlueHost!
Update 3: Thanks to Garrett Gee for walking me through some minor code changes to fix the search.php function in the blog’s template.[end updates, no, really this time]
I like MCWResearch; I’ve been following the site for quite a while. But the truth is, I really don’t know for certain who’s behind the curtain and the site’s pretty obviously been compromised. I’m barely willing to open the page, let alone use the contact page that requires me to trust a script, so I don’t know how to get in contact with them. If anyone knows the guys behind the site, give them a call and let them know someone’s taken over their site and is using it for spam postings. And don’t click on any of their links in the mean time.
