Some of you may have noticed HBA was down for the last 24 hours. It was attacked by a hacker or hackers who wanted to use the HBAs server resources to attack another website to bring it down. Our server company noticed the problem and pulled HBA offline so it could not be used in this way. Fortunately our hosting company is very familiar with the forum software we use here in HBA so I have been able to hire their experts to help investigate and remedy the situation. They are now working to close whatever security loophole in the forum software allowed it to happen.
I'm very sorry for the inconvenience.
