The registrar in charge of my domain name got hacked, and all of their stored domain names got hijacked. That's why REO was re-directing to an unknown website yesterday evening until this morning.

Thankfully the registrar was able to retrieve the domains, and is conducting an investigation into who is responsible. I apologize for any trouble this has caused to any of you.

It redirected? O_o All I got was the REO forum frame with something alone the lines of "The system is unavailable." I never got redirected...

Or is that an unrelated issue? X)

Oh no! I'm sorry about the hacking, even if you were indirectly affected!

When this first happened I didn't know if someone was actually hacking my files or what. I didn't find out how until this morning that it had to do with my registrar. That's why I shut down the forum until I knew it was safe to operate again. n.n

Yeah, I was wondering why the forum was unavailable yesterday, but I am glad things are back in check now. Good job getting it sorted out on such short notice ^^

To be on the safe side, I would run some virus/malware scanners if you did get redirected. For most, nothing popped up, but I believe someone did get something.

I ran stuff when I came to the site and I didn't get infected with anything.
