Default Geddes Forum Hacked

It seems that the Geddes Forum has been hacked by a middle-east terrorist group.

Who the hell will want to hack a speakers manufacturer page?

It's an evil plot, you will start hearing the call to prayer coming out of your Geddes speakers shortly

Are you hearing voices?
Can you make certain voices pop up at will?

I think that I was hacked because it was so easy to do. I was not well equipped to run a forum because I did not have the IT skills to administer the forum. The security updates were never done because I did not know how to do them. I tried to get the hosting site to help me figure out how to get it undone, but they would not help. Hence, my only choice - short of hiring an IT person - was to shut down the site. It wasn't doing anyone any good the way that it was.

I see why these sites are usually hosted by IT people.
