NOTE: I am using Chrome.

So i logged in this morning and can't view certain threads. They throw this warning:


Now obviously i doubt its validity, but i'm curious. Last time this happened it turned out to be the FAH sigs.

I haven't tried a huge number but so far i haven't spotted a pattern. Is anyone else having this problem?



EDIT: Here is the advisory.

it's happened in the past and was due to an ad. Hopefully Dave comes along and removes the ad causing it, but it's his birthday, so who knows. lol

I had the same issue with Chrome this morning. Like others have said, an advertisement caused it previously I believe.

Hey Guys


Sorry for the delay on getting back to you. I waited till it was corrected before posting.


Sometime through the night we were hacked and our database was accessed. A lot of our data is encrypted but its still possible they can decrypt the info. So to be safe I am asking all of you to change your passwords just to be on the safe side.


All of the affected data from them has been removed from OCC so the warnings should cease hopefully later today once Google rescans the site.


I am very sorry this happen, we do our best to keep the site secure.
