Site Outage / Malware Error Message

UPDATE: Issue was resolved a few hours after this posting. All good now

Approximately 12 hours ago, it seems our Playground was hacked. We are working with some security experts to clean up the site, however it seems all users will get a message that this site is infected with malware. We’re going through the entire site and all other ancillary sites to make sure there’s nothing malicious.

We’ll keep you updated on our progress.
