Seen on FilmNoirBuff.com (here...)

The site seems to have been hacked and would currently be advertising porn if they hadn't got their HTML wrong. Some suggestions:

+ Don't log in until it's fixed - the forum is gone anyway.
+ If you used the LL password elsewhere now is a good time to change it.
+ Review what you posted and what you had stored in PMs because the hackers will be going over it all.
+ Prepare to receive a lot of spam on any email addresses.

I got an e-mail from Michael Alden responding to my message saying what had happened.

Anyone willing and able to give technical advice please contact him on:

(I hope Michael Alden doesn't mind me posting his contact here - but it is an emergency)

There are still some dubious-looking hidden links on the forum display pages. Does anyone have an email address to the London Lounge admins?

Sator. Bit of netiquette sir..spell email addresses longhand eg. sator at hotmail dot com to prevent spam bots harvesting addresses. (Although they'll probably program round that soon)
