Default EcoRenovator.org Reported Attack Page!!

I tried logging in today and FireFox blocked EcoRenovator with a Reported Attach Page:

meh, it happens. One of the other websites hosted on this server likely got owned due to a weak password. That or phpBB has another gaping security hole in it. Either way, it's time for the mods to audit their site and open a ticket with their webhost.

Remember to use strong passwords boys and girls.
