MuggleNet will be temporarily shutting down to secure the website
Unfortunately, over the last five weeks, MuggleNet has been attacked continuously by outside criminal hackers that have injected malware coding into the site time and time again.
The intent of these criminals has been to infect our visitors with viruses and while we have been able to remove all of the malware coding very quickly upon its injection, it has been a lengthy and tedious process. Additionally, visitors of the MuggleNet site are our No. 1 priority and we do not wish for any of your systems to be placed in jeopardy.
If you feel that your system has been subjected to a virus, we highly recommend that you run a virus scan on your system. We recommend http://www.malwarebytes.org/ as a tool for your PC.
Therefore, the day has come when we will be shutting down MuggleNet on a temporary basis with the exception of the news on the front page. Our incredible web development team at Spartz Media will then be leading the fight against these intrusions by cleaning up and securing each section of the site one at a time. We have given the team at Spartz Media a priority of the most visited sections to bring back up first, so we hope you will not be without your favorite section for very long.
This process will take some time to complete and we hope you will allow us the chance to finish this process and come back to us as soon as you are able to. We will continue to be the World’s No. 1 Harry Potter site when we return and we look forward to the many new projects we have lined up for you in the near future including a March Madness Character Brawl and the O.W.L. exams in June.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
