Anything and everything about Photoshop Elements

The following was posted about 2PM today by Rick LePage:

I'm in the process of wiping out the Elements Village server right now. I wish it didn't have to be this way, but this morning has been just a bit overwhelming (I was away all weekend, and missed the original attack), and frankly, it is the right thing to do at this moment.
I don't know when I'll be able to reconnect the EV URL with a static web page -- it might be a few days, so if someone here could let the other community sites know about EV going away, I'd appreciate it.
It might have been one hacker today, but this is the type of thing that's been going on behind the scenes for quite some time. My biggest fears have always been that someone would hack into the member database and get usernames and email addresses. This latest attack isn't that -- it's a pretty blatant injection/redirect attack -- but I can't really protect the site at all at this point. With only a short period of time until the scheduled shutdown, it seemed appropriate to make the call.
As I said on EV a couple of weeks ago, there are some fine places for the members to hang out now, so, while I am sad about EV going away, I am heartened that the community will live on around the web.
Godspeed, everyone.
Rick

Thanks for posting this. I was getting ready to when i saw you had already done so. A toast to the village and for all the wonderful years we had there.
