Due to Bitcoin forum being hacked I have decided to launch CoinConnect early, as of right now.

CoinConnect is a full featured Bitcoin Social Networking Site that I have been working on.

if you would like to check us out be the first to register a profile at www.coinconnect.org

thanks.
Way to seize the moment!

Please be aware that you may have gotten hit with a driveby flash or PDF exploit.

On initial page load (view-source: counts as a second and won't appear anymore, sniff your traffic), you get served this funky little thing:
hxxp://188.229.89.121/?i=Aac0bfc3bb680e116==

It appears to serve different content based on user agent and may not load again after the initial one to prevent detection.
It doesn't look blocked by any blacklists.

I just hope the usernames and passwords are safe   Cry
They are if you use a unique username and password on every site. It also helps to have a password over 16 characters so it can't be cracked even if the password database is stolen.

you're forgetting that bitcoin users have pc rigs dedicated to forcing hashes.

BTW:

I have posted easy instructions on how you can stop the Cosby Hack and still enjoy full functionality of the Bitcoin Forums

just check out my thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=42569.0

also Sorry about the shameless advertising of my new social networking site
but I have been waiting for a perfect time to launch it and I feel the time is now

and I dont want to compete with the Bitcoin Forums but I wanted to created something that would showcase and connect the Bitcoin community with the rest of the world.

Every character added to password length makes it ~96x harder if you consider all the password characters that can be typed on a keyboard. If 8 character passwords take a day, 9 characters take three months, 10 characters take 30 years, etc.
I'm still changing my 19 character never used elsewhere password though.
