Security Breach

Hi all,

Some of you may have noticed that the forums were hacked shortly before this post. We have removed the vulnerability introduced by the hack, but lost the General forum in the process. We're not sure if we can recover it.

If you were on the forums during the period of vulnerability, in which you would likely have been redirected to a hackers' site, then please make sure you run a full virus scan on your computer. We aren't sure of the extent of the hack, and have no reason at present to suspect a virus was involved, but it's best to play it safe.

We will attempt to address site security in a more permanent way as soon as possible.
