No. No. Wilders is not affected at all. That is a link to the discovery and discussion on Wilders security forum. Wilders does not host AVAST forums.. You can visit the link i posted without problems..

The affected site is on AVAST's own servers...

Hi everyone,

I'm a former active member of the avast! forum and I just want to clear some stuff up regarding about the mess Alwil had to deal with: -System32 (September 10, 2007, 02:54 PM)

Finally some attempt at damage control.

Neither Alwil nor avast! were hacked by this exploit.

A half truth. Hint look at the domain name.... The fact is Alwil was responsible for the forum and they screwed up.

It was the forum software that was hacked.

No one implied otherwise.
