This afternoon (and evening) I've been having difficulty with the MoDaCo forums page, I keep getting redirected to http://caribfinancin...n/pdf.php?f=all
which loads a PDF with a code in it. Anyone else experiencing anything similar?

I'm wondering if this is the reason that I've suddenly started getting spam emails from my MoDaCo email alias. I set up an email address alias for every site I register at, and I've never gotten spam piggybacking on the MoDaCo alias until the last week or so. The spam traffic is quite sparse but still noticeable, especially since I've never received any unauthorized emails from this site/alias before.

I recommend that you make sure your email database is secure. I'm going to nuke my MoDaCo email address anyway.

I have double and tripled checked everything now... but it is possible the database was compromised during the short period the server was compromised. :(
