UPDATE:  It looks like we weren’t the only ones hit.  GoDaddy and a few other hosting companies got nailed by what is being referred to as the “realsafe-23” trojan.

It is with more than a little anger and frustration that I have to report that JBL has been hacked and a malicious trojan has been installed.  DO NOT access the site right now until the all-clear has been sounded.  Keep an eye on the Facebook page and Twitter feed for more information as to when the all clear has been sounded. The hack seems to have affected both the site and the forums.

Do NOT install ANYTHING that pops up– nor follow any instructions that appear to come from your computer or anti-virus.  Close out of your browser immediately.

I’m sorry for this inconvenience.  I can’t imagine why anyone would want to attack a site dedicated to a toy line in this fashion.
