I received it as well. It sends you to a weight loss products web site. I agree it looks to be spam but is harmless according to my virus and spam control.

It appears that someone was able to create an admin account on the forum and use the bulk mail feature to send mail to the users. I'm working now to resolve the issue.

THANKS CHAD, I WONDERED WHEN IT SAID "are afraid of the costs and risks of a surgery?"

It looks like there was most likely a bug with the forum software. I've just finished patching up the forum, gallery and blog with the latest versions.

From what I can tell, the spammer/bot was able to send emails to a couple hundred of the members before I was able to stop it. It could be worse considering there are several thousand members.
