TRC was hacked :(

Sorry to let everyone know, but it appears that TRC got hacked.  Somehow malicious code was inserted to just about every page on our website, and we’ve been getting reports of it spewing out viruses and malware from lots of people.

As far as we know, the problem has been contained.  (and I have about 400 .INFECTED files to remove from the website).

I’m still doing some final cleanup, so please let us know if you see anything odd or malicious.  If you are a regular visitor to our site, I recommend you run some virus and malware scans on your computer!

  7. Seth, I haven’t been on for well over a week. Do you think I could have problems resulting from the viruses. I am running pretty slow, but I’m having my computer cleaned up tonight….should I mention to my technician regarding this?

  9. Reality check. Pictures I took from Facebook (like the PAWS cats) are scanned by my Nortons and it has never alerted to anything so that should not be a problem, right ?
