    That happened with Personality Nation but I never saw any signs of this forum being hacked unless I'm missing something.

    Ivy getting banned seemed pretty bloody suspicious to me.

    The hackers are the same guys (Mongler, Promethea, et al) who put INFP-GlobalChatter out of action. But Kara was kind of an absentee landlord and let the message board software get out of date, or so they said.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I liked the notice that asked me to download a patch in order to continue viewing the site.

    I looked up the file that we were supposed to download. Apparently, the software file itself is a legitimate piece of translation software, but some versions of the software come with a new virus. The virus itself is apparently not much of a problem: It just slows down one’s computer and throws a lot of pop-up windows on the screen. It only affects Windows, of course.

    Trouble-makers like that particular file and virus because it’s a new virus and won’t be caught by most current anti-virus software. But since the virus is only on some versions of the file, it’s not even a certainty that the download had the virus.

    Anyway, that's what I gleaned from sites about viruses and malware. The manufacturer of the translation software insists that the file is clean and that rumors of a virus carried by the file are unfounded.

    Good information. I'm thinking about creating virtual windows machines to download the viruses and see.

    Well if the hackers try to ban people and run amuck using the same method as they did before, I left a treat out on the table for them!
