No, I do not believe there is a page called indeforum. I think you're correct in thinking it is a mash-up typo in some file with index and forum.

I would suggest finding the source of the problem instead of using the redirect as a cover up as it might create problems later ;)

Its one of those strange ones..... i cant find the indeforum.php anywhere
thats why i think I will set up a redirect.

How do you stop referer spam entering the site. If you redirect in the htaccess the referer still lists in the stats....

I have the same site coming up on my adult forum. I am just redirecting it.

I've got loads of 404s for this page also?

greping the source shows no "indeforum" anywhere?

There is no indeforum.php in phpBB.
If you are seeing it on your logs, I am betting it is a vulnerable Mod page, and hackers are seeing if your website is using it, so they can hack your site.

I've come to the same conclusion as it is flanked by other modx type exploits.

They may only be probing for the presence of another type of forum not just a mod. I've setup a 301 redirect!
