Larry,
Someone hacked our forums and placed an ActiveX control to install a trojan. The forums are now closed while we remove this. Both NewTek and LightWave web servers are operating fine, without any user danger (other than spending a ton of time admiring the eye-candy).

According to Avast Anti-virus, it was the VBS Obfuscated_gen, but that seems to be a generic alert for trojan horses. Avast caught it before it loaded, but I use Firefox anyway.
