Thanks FPN Admin for getting the site back up and running. I too would like to know more details as to what the malware contents were so I may check my machine more thoroughly. I've used Malwarebytes to scan my computer, and it came up clean. However, one can never be too sure.
On a different note, I am outraged towards the hacker and very sympathetic to FPN Admin and its members. Even though I'm a fairly new member to this community, this is one of very few sites in which some civility, integrity and respect are exercised by the majority of the members. It's refreshing to see that some ol' fashioned yet timeless values still exist in the virtual realm. Because of that, I've felt very safe in perusing the contents as well as doing business with the members. However, this past incident made me feel like a victim of a robbery. No one likes the feeling of violation and the realization that something is not safe anymore.
FPN Admin, you have my sympathies, and I hope you have the means to prevent such occurrences in the future. Great job and thank you for providing a forum where people like me can obtain helpful information and great deals to feed our passions/addictions.
