    Over the past day or so it seems that hackers have been using a Doubleclick exploit to redirect Brewersfriend.com to SPAM sites. Can we have a statement from admin as to whether this is under control, or can we expect more disruption?

    Nothing to do with Doubleclick.

    The issue was from the NAMESERVERS setup from before we owned it. One of the name servers was set to NS-1581.AWSDNS--05.CO.UK when it should have been NS-1581.AWSDNS-05.CO.UK. If you do a domain whois on AWSDNS--05.CO.UK you will see it's a German based entity which was doing it.
