Re: Beware of idiots...

I don't know if anyone else got hit with this or not, but user "dose"
posted a message in the General forum, with a subject of "salut all",
which appeared to contain some sort of malicious JavaScript code
which may have sent your cookie for this site to some other site...
So, I recommend anyone that read that message while it was still
around with JavaScript enabled, change their passwords ASAP...

Re: Beware of idiots...

Why don't you post an "ALERT" announcement on the forums explaining the problem, and asking ALL that got hit by this guy to change their passwords.

(I would do it, but I think you are the one who could explain this better)
