Thank you so much for reporting this. You actually brought to our attention a major problem. Someone hacked the site and had included an iframe into the site structure.
It is very important to us to have users like you to let us know when stuff like this happens. Websites that are highly visible on the internet like testmy.net are prone to things like this. It happened that this time it was an easy fix. There are allot of files moving around on the server right now (with the speedtests being rebuilt) and in the mix some file permissions got messed up. I had a feeling at the time that command was mistyped, that's why you always double check! So anyways, that was seriously a couple days ago... hackers are seriously just out there scanning for a weak spot.
Luckily we caught this fast and got it resolved quickly. I wish I would have noticed hours sooner, but hey.

I'm mostly surprised at how quickly they noticed the security hole. Whoever did that obviously has some sort of bot scanning the internet.
Well, thanks again!

Well, that's what I would have normally thought..... buuuuuuut they had also exploited the other site of the site... the side that's not tied to IPB.

Or maybe to do with the cross site login?
