Default Did RCU have another virus?

Earlier this afternoon I came to the home page using my Mac and got a message that using this website may damage my computer.
Now I don't get any message. This would have been only a couple hours today. Does anyone have any info on this?

That message was the result of a hack attempt that we had against RCU. We've removed the damage from the attempt and they are working to close the hole that allowed the attempt in the first place. It should all be cleaned up soon.

It sounds like RCU got a handle on this pretty quick and took care of it. Thanks for the reply.

On almost every page in the forums starting today I am getting a warning of potentially malicious content and it references this file: Threat Name: Adware.Gen. What is going on?

Hackers are continually trying to inject code hacks into RCU. The admins are constantly checking this, but they cannot always get the rogue code removed before a user sees the result...either they cannot see the page or their virus-checker traps it. The fact that only a few get through shows how well the RCU admin staff is doing in keeping the malicious stuff away from the users.

I'd have to agree with you. I've used RCU a lot through the years and this is the first time my Nod 32 system has cut the connection. Seems fine now so keep up the good work.

I'm still getting the message when I try to view the gallery. I first noticed it yesterday,and just tried today from a different computer.
Here's what it is saying.....
