Stan Tamarkin Site Hacked

The name Stan Tamarkin (of Stan Tamarkin Camera for example) should sound familiar to many. He runs the Stan Tamarkin Rare Camera Auctions site, as well... Which apparently wasn't kept up to date, and got hacked on October 31, 2014 - and the evidence is still there two weeks later! This might give you pause, considering the high profile auction taking place on November 15, 2014 - only two days away. The fact that these spam-laden posts have gone undetected and unmoderated is not a comforting feeling... As the site cannot be trusted at this time, which jeopardizes registrations at the very least.

Update (11/15/14):

It would appear that the offending spam posts have been removed - but something still doesn't seem quite right. The title of the first post on the page is missing. No word on if the site itself was patched or otherwise fixed, however. Proceed with caution.
