Safety Concerns

Posted: Fri Jan 11, 2008 5:58 pm   Safety Concerns

Since yesterday this site is blacklisted from my work, apperently this site's IP is on an international blacklist and therefor I can't get to this site...

We allready heard about cathy's problem with trojans (something experienced by other members aswell, including me...)

Today I got a PM from someone and my email programm was going on "red allert" for phishing attempts (never happened with PM's before)...

Then there was the issue of the "1000 unread messages" again, first of all, I DON'T CARE, there's a reason I didn't read them... But more annoying.. It didn't go away this time, even not after I logged out and In again... (get rid of it, we don't need such a warning...)

My question is this, Are we sure this site is as safe as we assume it is? Are you running some kind of home webserver? And if so, is it up to date etc?

After those experiences past few days I should be worried I think...

I've been in touch w/GeeJee, and he assured me the forum hasn't been hacked.
