msshamof Security Alert
Sharp eyed revolutionaries spotted it when it cropped up in our forums, and we got it quickly under control, but it's spreading like mad across thousands of other forums and blogs.
UPDATE: The malicious code also includes a flash file currently titled "nice.swf". It definitely has a keylogger functionality and your information is being sent to China. Two of the bad-guys' IP addresses are 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.
We've disabled html in our forums until we can come up with a more elegant fix on Monday. For those who know how to do such things, we recommend changing your hosts file and routing msshamof.com and idfirstc.com to localhost.
Until the inevitable Microsoft and/or Macromedia security patch, we urge you all to be very careful when posting anything to any site. You may be unwittingly posting more than you think.
