    Earlier this morning, I was trying to access the UU Forum using my iPhone and then my iPad -- and I got the "download" web page each time that I tried to access the forum -- is there anything I need to do for either my iPad or iPhone? I didn't click anything on the screen -- but, if there was some kind of "auto install" -- I guess my iPhone and iPad are at risk? Many thanks for the help! Thanks so much for all that you do to keep this site running and maintained for us all to enjoy! :-)

    If you were on an iPad most likely it won't affect you. It looks like it was a file that targeted PC users.
    Rayan, What you are doing?

    I give up with my PM box, just email ryan(at)ukuleleunderground.com

    I'm a mac user so I don't think I was badly effected yet, the malicious site DID leave cookies and data in Safari. I recommend that everyone clear out their cookies and website data from their browsers. After you have done this wait a minute for various sites to send replacement cookies and delete them too.

    This will be an inconvenience as you will have to log back on to all your sites but I find that its a good idea to do this at least once a week anyway.

    Hey Rayan, we all appreciate your efforts a lot.
    I'd like to see you hangin' with us dawgs a little more. Hope all is well in the "other than UU world".

    Glad I was on a Chromebook. I clicked and thought, "Oops".
