Is it okay to ask about another forum here? I just tried to visit the JeepKJ.com forum and was redirected to another website, which also caused my security software to put up a big red warning. I was surfing the site last night, so this has happened within the last 20 hours.

Just had the same problem with JeepKJ......got out of the site immediately!
Will have to wait a while for the site Administrators to clean things up there! :shock:

Both the Russian and Chinese government have denied any involvement in the downing of any JeepKJ site / forum
Requesting information from India next

Or any one of a dozen other schemes used by website and server hackers.

Since you are a Super Moderator on that site and would likely find out before the rest of us, I hope you'll let us know when it's safe to return. I know you wouldn't want anything bad to happen to any of JeepKJ's members. :roll:

Tried that tapacrap twice and hate it so never tried it

JeepKJ.com is back online. You may have to clear your browser's cache. Administration has not confirmed the hacking, but it's my opinion that you may want to change your password. If you used that password anywhere else, change it there too. And don't be surprised if you get more spam email because hackers may have collected those too. I'm not saying it did happen, I'm just saying, based on experience, that it might have. Better safe than sorry.
