Has anyone visted BF today? My FireFox browser says it's an attack site now. So I went and did a Google search for "blade forum" and Google has a notation in the search results that reads "this site may harm your computer". Looks like they've been hacked. :(

Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this.

this happened yesterday and one of the mods started a thread in tech support to inform spark, i chimed in as I was unable to log into my other computer at all... i think its being looked into as I just tried to log on and that's the message I got..

some were able to clear the virus message simply by clearing cookies..

I got a message from the site itself that they were updating virus stuff, then when I went back later I got a malware warning from my browser. Mu guess is that they're working on getting it cleared up.
I got a virus yesterday named XP Antispyware 2012 after being at Bladeforums. That was strange...................... and I'm not happy

okay let me say this, I can go there on this computer with no problems or any pop ups I'm running malwarebytes anti-malware, Avast, and using Mozilla...

after clearing my other computer I still have the same problem going to the site, but I'm not running the same software.... computer works fine on any other site other then that one.. supposedly it was banner ads that have caused the problem, they have removed the banner's completely and I still had the problem..

We'll go ahead and shut this one down.

We appreciate the heads up one what's happening with another forum.
