Just a few mintues ago...

I had been on the forum for about an hour and suddenly the forum screen and tab was replaced with an "Urgent Google Update" screen depicting the google icon and a download button. The hijack(?) attempt already had a "patch" file in the download que ready to send to me.

I don't know if this came from BYC or somewhere else, though I've had no issues elsewhere. The address of the bogus screen/website is REMOVETHISphoohjamesnorquay.org/3641673770636/0e8d16176f74466f35155f5780341c9d.html . The actual url does not have the "REMOVETHIS" string in it.

Just thought I'd let somebody know with administration know about it.
