Just an FYI. Another non-gun related forum that I visit was hacked in a very scary way. They hijacked the site and made a mirror copy on their server so that people were logging in on the hijacked site.

This site might be a prime target due to the nature of the site. I am just wondering if this site has updated security.

Nope, wide open.

In fact, for a nominal fee, we issue entrance tickets to the malwareites who want to take us over. :eek:

:)

Just kidding, of course. I'm not sure of the details, but our tech guru seems to do a pretty good job at keeping the barbarians out of the gate.

The site was ReplicaPropForum. In addition to replica movie weapons, they discuss light sabers, Indiana Jones hats, Halo Armor...

I had noticed some odd messages in my security software. The site moved to a different domain and asked everyone in an email to avoid the old site (now somewhere in Russia).
