    Looks like it's legitimate to me, Forums have had a complete overhaul and message there says pw's need to be changed.

    Heh, yeah, my stupidity :eek:
    I had a shortcut directly linking to the Froyd subforum, and this was returning a badgerbadger youtube video, so i figured they'd been hacked.
    Duh.

    I was suspicious of the email at first as well, but the website confirmed the email was real :)
