Does anyone know how to contact Marks Sisson? http://www.marksdailyapple.com/ is hacked, forums are broken and the site is trying to run a trojan on your computer.

edit: corrected my typo

On my Mac, it froze my Firefox and had to Force Quit. Now I know why! Checking now to make sure it didn't leave anything nasty behind

it's a js, so it can *run* on your mac, but who knows what it does when it gets there, chances are it won't do anything but I wouldn't try it.

But... the real MDA is actually compromised and opening a java trojan downloader. I think the OP simply typo'ed.

DO NOT click on the link in Uzito's post. That is NOT marksdailyapple website.
