Whoever is the admin may want to shut down this forum, inform your hosting provider, restore from a clean known backup, and force password changes to all members.
Some clown probably injected a file via PHP..

Just my two cents...Disable website registration. It can only be done at club meetings. If a person lives out of area, then they can send in an old fashion letter with their login username and email address for confirmation. Temporary password given for their first login. Just a suggestion.
Could be better, could be worse, could be in a hearse.

I brought that up years ago. It was shot down in that it was thought the this forum would draw new members.
Go look at the stats page. 107 members and 237 were on yesterday Somethings wonky.

Maybe SMFGURU can give us stronger Capatcia . somewhere along the the way Permissions have changed because Rich67vw should not be able to post when logged as a  guest
Guest should be READ Only...  

I will fix that sometime later today.
I don't have to go to work in the morning....
