It seems that an unauthorized change of DNS servers has happened at our dotster registrars.

I have changed them back and changed passwords, but this is obviously a worry.

Forums effected should be back to life soon.

Thank goodness.

Do you know what's happened?

Could it have been a malicious attack?

There is no doubt that this is a malicious attack performed at the registrars.

Given our password there is secure and unique, there is a big question mark on how,

recovery will be erratic, nameserver changes can take 24 hours at this level

Please click on one of the links below to help find your site" is box which has "Search the Web: and a box next to it ... when I click on the box it has a drop down which gives my two myfastforum login names - how has it got both of them!

I'm not sure what you are seeing, remember though your browser probably has some memory of forms, and wherever you are ending up may be trying to take advantage of that.
Be careful! this is a criminal attempt to do nasty things.

This is what I see (screenshot) ... and if I click in the search  it was bringing up my forum name and my editor name as drop down options ... (not sure if it means anything to you, but just in case)

I have now cleared all my cookies, history and passwords just to be safe.

I changed my DNS to opendns earlier and was then able to access the airfixtributeforum, but it has just fallen back to the malware site. Good luck sorting the nasties out.

Just to reiterate to everybody - do not click on any of the links on the "Domain does not exist" page!
