    Sorry for the downtime tonight. I was traveling the last few days and didn't notice an alert about an exploit discovered in a module our forum software runs.

    Since I didn't catch it in time, we went into stage 2 and then 3 of the attack.

    Everything should be good now and while annoying, we didn't lose any information.

    Does this mean somebody tried hacking into the system or you ended up with a malicious plug-in or what, most of what was in the explanation is Greek to me.

    I think so, after you have made a certain amount of posts you are not classified as a probationary member.
