AVEN Hacked - we could be next

Just a 'heads up' on this one Nancy - do you have any computer gurus who could help you?

Thankfully, this site doesn't use the same software as AVEN so we haven't been affected.
Our phpBB software is so ... well, not top of the line, that's for sure, and maybe not very interesting to terrorists. I hope.
But, I have no idea what I would do if we got hacked.
