I keep getting this box popping up whenever I load the forum.

It only happens on this site. I'm not sure what would happen if I entered my password, but getting "Pwned by Team C0rrupt!" doesn't sound fun.

We'll deactivate the shout box for a while. It's gonna happen. i kinda figured going into this there will come a time when a hacker tries to do something but the security here is good and unless you actually enter your info in there there's nothing they can do.
I got a buddy whose dad does server security for corporations and he does some stuff too. I'll hit them up and see if they can do something for us.

Cool. I don't think it's a problem unless a user on here happened to use his/her username and password thinking it was just some glitch.
If you did, you should change your password on here ASAP, and also make sure if you use the same password for other sites, especially your email, change them. The person who did this could use your password to gain access to your email address, which I am assuming could potentially be found through this site. Once they get into your email, they can have a field day getting into bank account and facebook etc.

Only admins can see email addresses so that shouldn't be a problem. That person has been banned on multiple levels and we disabled shout box until that exploit is fixed. They can post that code here on the forums but the shout box was an add on and didn't protect against it.
