Google has marked my forum as malware, I can't find any offending posts, and when I open the forum in IE it does seem to redirect the browser to another site. I can't find anything obvious that would cause the problem.

I have, but eather someone has gained backend access to my server, or, there is a flaw with the forum that allowed someone to inject code into it.

Yip, the OP is using PHPbb and not FUDforum. Earlier releases of PHPbb was particularly vulnerable. So, upgrade or convert to FUDforum!

The phpbb forum is disabled and only used for news posts.
Another site that I have on the same server was also hacked, so I have the server techs looking into it.

I converted to fudforum some time ago. But was unable to extract posts for use in the news feature. If you dig back in this forum you will find a post where I asked for help with that. Wink

It is unlikely that your site was hacked via FUDforum. However, if you have any evidence to the contrary, we would be very interested to know about it.

This may help you to "secure" or "harden" your FUDform installation: http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/Securing
