I recently sent Ed (webmaster) a pm requesting the same. This is the second notice I recieved in the last couple of days. I think my stuff is up to snuff. Checked everything anyway and yep the stuff is up to snuff.

Hey Folks some one has figured out how to hack into our Private Massage system and send everyone on the Forum a message saying their computer is infected.

It is not their account has been deleted and the security measures Strengthened I’m researching how to prevent this in the future.

Thank you

Thanks Ed. We use to get those hackers on Sweptline.org (where I'm a
Founder/Moderator) and the Admin cranked the security up so it's a non
issue now.

if you have openned the link and it infected your pc you can go to www.downloads.com and search for spybot search & destroy (free spyware removal software). after install run this and it will clean up your pc. I am a Computer tech by trade

I got the email too, it caused some fast wild stuff but I am pretty sure my anti-vrus program caught it, it warned it was not a known site or program, and after a sweep I hade a virus in quarentine. Why do people have to mess with people they don't even know

We are sorry that this one snuck thru. We do not allow just anyone thru and if you remember when you signed up. We ask some fairly pointed questions to make sure you are legitimate. We get on the average 50 of these types of things trying to get in daily.
