Unfortunately I'm reporting some pretty bad news. For the past 24 hours Jokeroo has been under a full scale hacking attack. These hackers seem to be very persistent. Just as we thought we eliminated them earlier this afternoon, they came back later in the evening to cause more havoc. Once again, we feel that we have stopped them from injecting their malicious code into our website and are taking every precaution to prevent this from happening in the future.

For the next few days we ask that everyone keep a close eye on any suspicious activity and please report it here immediately if you run into anything.

I think my ani-virus is Ok to ... yesterday I went to click into the Roo through the latest Newsletter [having already done so a few times since it was first posted]...and my system came up with a red warning that the page was contaminated and not to continue... so good for you Roo boys in working so hard to clearing these bastards [Oooops can I use that word here, outside PG]... but sadly I does just prove how important it is to have your computer protected as best as you can as well.

I have pinged the IP address and it is still active, so he is still around somewhere.
