I think your website has been attacked by hackers!

Dear Captain Lim,

I was wondering if you're the owner of http://www.askcaptainlim.com/ website. I'm a frequent visitor to this URL and I must praise your effort in keeping this aviation portal extremely informative. 

Recently, the website has been planting viruses on the reader's computer whenever one tries to visit the website. Even when you tries to google "askcaptainlim" Google would also warn user that the portal is harmful.

As a fan to your website and not wanting viruses to ruin the reputation of this portal, I hope this little information would help you in tracking down the problem before it gets rampant.

Thank you and continue in updating us with aviation information Smile

Best regards,

Teo M.C

Hi Teo,

Indeed, my site has been hacked and planted with viruses by some malicious hackers.  I am (only an amateur) still in the midst of solving the problem and desperately scratching my head on how to do tackle this menace.

In fact, my site was down for a few days and I thought I have sorted out the problem. Yes, I am aware about the warnings to visitors by Google and other Search engines about my site.

I went online to check on this and this article has confirmed (8.8.08) that "Online social networking sites are hacker playgrounds" here.

"Fake postings ... advising people to update software, are ways to trick network users into downloading malicious software that can commandeer control of machines...

"People know if they go on a computer and download a program they could get a virus... Hackers can write seemingly legitimate widgets that "go rogue" after spreading to enough social network members..."


Thanks for informing me. I hope I can solve the problem soon.

P.S. My apologies to all visitors for any inconveniences caused Embarassed
