    Hi,

    Just a heads up and warning, I tried to check out details of the bedbug summit this morning and Firefox will not let me look at bedbugcentral.com due to a malware / virus warning.

    They may have been hacked again but its usually got to be something reasonably bad for FireFox to stop all access.

    I guess they have been infected with the wrong type of bug.

    Is pre for website restoration easier than it is for bed bug treatment?

    That's too bad. I am sure anyone with a website will be sympathetic about what a hassle that is.

    Luckily for web surfers, modern web browsers warn users before they get into trouble -- another reason to always make sure your Firefox/Safari/Internet Explorer is up to date.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    P2P sites are especially vulnerable to such hijacks...

    Hey Everybody,

    Your assumptions are correct about being hacked. Apparently some ad-script was added to the site that many of the browers identified as malicious, hence the warning message and limited/no access David and others mentioned. As Sean said, we were working on it and all has been corrected. It may take a few days for the browsers not to give you that message but I assure you everything has been corrected.

    People (meaning the hackers) need to find something better to do with their time. So insanely aggravating and the last thing we needed 2 weeks from the Summit but it is what it is and has been dealt with.

    And yes, we were infested with bugs...just a different type.

    Jeff
