    Somehow and I am not sure how at this point but I believe someones computer was infected with a virus and when they posted a thread it infected the website url data and put a script in there.

    I have cleaned the database up and it should be ok now.

    Everyone might want to make sure their antivirus software is up to date and scan their system.

    Well I tracked down what happened. A hacker in Australia and/or the Netherlands found a way to inject their little script in to the database. This has happened to many, many, sites over the last few days.

    I have programmed the site to try and prevent this from happening.

    Sorry for any inconvience.
