Massive hack attack so the admins took the site ofline.

For those who don't know, RateBeer.com has been experiencing some major security issues with their servers. I'm not clear on the details, but this has led to the admins having to shut down the site in order to protect its users, determine the cause, and find a solution. Google and FireFox also tagged them as a security risk. Sounds pretty serious and I'm sure the admins and many of its members are frustrated as hell; I know I would be, and then some.

I know about a month ago every time I logged in my virus protection would start screaming at me! I warned them of that but I thought it was cleared up.
