The www.naksquad.net website has been ‘hacked’. Unfortunately, this is not uncommon for WordPress websites. Rest assured the hack did not expose any private information about any user. No financial information is ever stored on our servers, and all other private information (IP addresses, emails, usernames, passwords, etc.) is secure. The hack used a known security hole in WordPress to inject new content into the site. This new content added cookies on the user’s system that will redirect them to a scam site when they are trying to reach naksquad.net. Only naksquad.net and www.naksquad.net cookies were affected, but if you have been redirected when visiting the NAK Squad website it may have written other cookies or code that may affect other sites.
The NAK Squad website is now clean and the security hole has been plugged but as a precaution, I recommend that all users should delete all www.naksquad.net and naksquad.net cookies. It is best if you have not been redirected to follow these instructions and clear cookies just for the NAK website. If you have been redirected, I recommend that you clear all cookies and run any malware utilities you may have. If you do not have a malware utility you are comfortable with, Google Chrome does have a built-in scanner. Open Chrome (or open a new tab if Chrome is already running) and type the following into the address bar at the top: chrome://settings/cleanup or click on the link. The Chrome malware scanner can actually scan your entire computer for malware… just like a standalone antivirus program does.
