Redirects causing problems

Whenever I (or my boss on his computer) go to View Your Posts, we aren't able to click on anything without being redirected, same thing happens if we use the search bar and try clicking on anything. If you're already aware of this issue than I apologize.

Yeah, we're almost ready to tackle this. We had some spammer issues, so there's no malware, but we need to reload the newer board software.

Been away for a while. Still getting malware redirects on searches. I'm sure admins know, but figured I'd post.

I still get them too and I so wish the admins would fix the issue.

I've been working on trying to re-create the hack, which would let me fix it, but no joy so far. Unfortunately, our options are extremely limited due to circumstances beyond our control.

.htaccess file is where the problem is located and the fix is very documented.

Damn, get this malware elsewhere on the site. I take it Thumper is long gone and doesn't care. Too bad.

Yes, we know that, but we don't have the server access to do it. We're doing the best we can under the circumstances.

Will you accept another set of eyes? There has got to be a way to fix this, get the site "not hacked" and onto https. I'm assuming thumper has the hosting contract and the original credentials. It might be as simple as moving hosts and importing the DB into a clean copy of phpBB, then enabling https with a Let's Encrypt cert.
