I've received the following two emails from Showmasters - of particular relevance to anyone going to London Film & ComiCon:-
We are currently expriencing a big problem with someone hacking our site and using our forum to pass on a virus. If you receive an e-mail from us with a clickable link DO NOT CLICK IT. It is actually a virus. Please delete the other e-mail asap.
We have already contacted invision and our server people who are working on the problem, and hopefully it will be back to normal soon.
Further to our last e-mail, we are afraid that the problem is worse than we originally thought. As well as the virus' being e-mailed they are also being downloaded when you log onto the forum. The problem only seems to affect PCs and those using Explorer, but as a precautionary measure I have taken the forum offline. For the moment I would advise that you DO NOT LOG ON TO THE FORUM or try to open a topic or page related to the forum.
We will be e-mailing you further updates when we have this problem fixed, and to let you know when it is safe to log back onto the forum.
