Our forums were hit by a trojan over the weekend.

We are currently chasing this down and fixing.

If you have issues with the forums (like reviewing) please hold on… we’re on it.

Peace,
Victor

From where we sit it looks like we’ve recovered with minimal damage — except for an afternoon of ‘invalid paths’.

btw, I should mention that the initial reason those came up in the last few weeks was due to spam bots wreaking havoc on our forum databases.

Using 3rd party software for the forums seems to be less and less of a grand idea. I’m going to ask the "powers that be" about the possiblity of extending the main site to include reviews so we can avoid this nonesense in the future.
