#1
Don't know where to put this and figure heres good to start as its internettyweb type question.

I occasionally visit another forum for Archery called Archers rest, but when I search for it tonight I get the normal search results, so far so good. But when I click on the Link I arrive at an On line PC wallpaper shop called

(Don't click the link) http://www.x-wall.net/

I have even tried going to Archers Rest using links from a notification email from Archers rest from awhile ago and again end at the wallpaper site. Anyone more computer literate got a scooby whats happening?
Has the site been Hijacked?

Thanks for any constructive answers in advance, the usual knobs will be ignored.

I'm a member of Archers Rest and I have recently received a whole load of spam from the site. It looks to me like they've been victim of somekind of attack.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Apologies to all AR members who were sent am email supposedly from me, I can assure you that it was not sent from me.

A spammer hacked into AR's email and sent the mail out to our address book. I cant apologise enough for this embarrassing incident even though it was beyond our control.

The little scrotes have also hijacked our url and diverted it to X-Wall, I am currently awaiting a response from our web provider on this matter.
