I noticed something odd about the main OAS website this morning, so I have restored the main OAS site to a version backed up a few days ago, and then updated the site's code to the latest versions. I believe that has cleared out the gremlins, but if you spot anything strange about it, please let me know.

is the main site hosted on a word press site?
theres been some news that there is a massive attack currently going on regarding wordpress sites.

Check the admin logs to see if new admins have been created.

Mac.
Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
If you argue with an idiot, there are two idiots.

I've been through it with a fine-tooth comb comparing before and after. No new users or extraneous plug-ins were found, and all is now as it should be, with latest patches applied.
