Project Description

We have had some customers report being redirected to porn and gambling websites when visiting our website - [url removed, login to view] Not all customers get redirected so the error seeps to be very sporadic. We are concerned that this may be the result of a black hole exploit. We have run numerous tools and had multiple people check our servers and no one has been able to find anything.

The primary part of our site runs on Windows Server 2008 and IIS 7.0 and is written in Classic ASP and ASP.Net. Part of our site also runs on Linux and PHP.

We have had reports of people being redirected to the following websites. (there may be other sites but most customers don't report the actual url because they see the porn and quickly close down their browser)
1. [url removed, login to view]
2. [url removed, login to view]
3. [url removed, login to view]

I am the developer for the website and I have never seen any of the redirect errors myself. My feeling is that since the redirects are so sporadic and random that it may be the customers computers that are infected, however it seems strange to me that a few customers have submitted multiple reports of redirects and they only report them when visiting out website. We are very concerned about finding a reason for the redirects because this is giving our customers the impression that our site is infected.
