Sorry about that, folks...

Okay, so we got hosed by a malicious script due to a security leak in our image gallery and were offline for about an hour and a half. Anybody who was online at the time and saw that, you might want to run a spyware sweep on your system just to be on the safe side.

No forum data was lost -- everything (recent posts, etc.) is intact -- the security breach has been plugged and I don't think it'll happen again. My apologies for the inconvenience. I'm just glad it happened at the end of the week but before the weekend started.

Nothing to see here... carry on...

I opened it with my Vista machine and it downloaded a .RAM file to the desktop. I immediately deleted that file then disconnected from the net and ran a scan. It came up clean.

I opened it with the Mac and Safari gave me a pop up about not having the correct plug-in for a mime type of unknown.

I'm hopeful that nobody had their system compromised.
