    Looks like they have been hacked, I'd expect them back very quickly after a quick clean up.

    Still, at least they check for and warn about any "extras" that may be bundled which most other sites don't. I admit, I'm sucker for freeware and MG is a first place I check for it. I'm pretty careful with any SW and sites so I don't get in trouble often.

    Oh well, it's down for sure, hope it gets fixed. At first it was showing that SQL database was unavailable and then unreachable site. with timeout.

    Don't sweat it, they will be back in the next few hours as they are losing lots of money being offline so they will be throwing everything they can at getting back asap.

    Tibbets and the rest of the team are probably going bat-sh*t right now, being that a 1/2 hour ago is usually when they start posting the newest program updates
