    Have been trying to access Bullionnow in Melbourne and it appears a Trojan or something has hijacked the website
    Getting notification on my mobile and Laptop that the site is unsecure and takes me to another site
    Anyone having the same problem?

    Do not be concerned for your personal info.
    The people behind the site are some of the best forensic IT people in the country.

    No pesonal information has been hacked. Completely seperate and secure. This is just a redirect bot that is annoying in the extreme.

    It seems to be a Woo Commerce thing at this stage

    Just look for a little bit of unusual code, usually in the main public html folder.

    Check your redirect plugins, especially if you have 301 redirects for SEO, and scan the table holding redirect URLs.

    I hate WP based ecommerce.

    FWIW guys that was a very unsophisticated automated bot finding a vulnerability and in many ways you were lucky it was not a malicious person.

    Lately, Many Business computer and Apps have been Hijacked and was told to Pay Ransom.
    Some have their clients details stolen.
    Just Beware! Have nothing against any businesses.
    This should be Reported to the Police and AFP.
    Sure they would be interested in this Oraganise Crimes.
