Something majorly wrong with TPT..

For any of you who are on The Planted Tank Forum, do you see anything that blocks off the page altogether? It says:
Reported Attack Page!


This web page at http://www.plantedtank.net has been reported as an attack page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

Attack pages try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

Some attack pages intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.

I got a malware warning from that link. I had the same thing happen to me with another site, but when I went to a bookmarked page within the main site, it didn't give me any warnings, and nothing bad happened. After a month or so, I stopped getting warnings about the main site.
"I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him or her. Will she gain anything by it? Will it restore her to a control over her own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to freedom for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away."

Well... it was hacked that day, no wonder.

Hello Lil' Swimz$,

Unfortunately on the night of September 10, 2010 the Planted Tank forum was hacked due to an exploit in a piece of software on the forum.

We are highly recommending that all user's reset their forum password in the case that it was compromised.

You can reset your password here:

More information and discussion can be found on this thread: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/impor ... acked.html

Regards,
Kyle
