I got an email from admin earlier on this evening with a link which went nowhere but looked like it led to a forum post. Is it linked? I'll check it for nastyness.

Please, everyone ignore this stuff. It wasn't sent by the TMC team, although it looks as if someone hacked TMC to send it.

This matter is being investigated as a matter of urgency. :x

I got that too!
...only problem is I'm on a Mac so nothing even happened, as a matter of fact nothing popped up and I was wondering what's going on so I came here to see.
So that weird email is starting to make sense now....

Thanks for the heads up, I won't open that email on my Windows machine.

I got the email too - it linked to porn. Kaspersky is also going nuts as I browse TMC :-(

I got it too as well as a porn pop up ... and the spoof tmc email. Symantec nailed it but I wonder how much it has damaged someone who isn't protected

Yep, I saw the TMC admin email - not typical format, so didn't open. About to log into TMC to find out what's it all about, when message from Norton AV states "Trojan Horse virus detected and removed, name of virus 'Downloader'"

Is this email from TMC for real?

Looks dodgy to me - anyone else get it, or can admin comment?
