    In short what this means is someone hacked the site and added dangerous scripts used to upload malware to your PC. I'm assuming the owners of the site have discovered this already and are having their hosts look at it and are working to fix it as we speak.

    Nobody hacked the Club site. The URL being listed is not part of the TFCC site at all, as near as I can tell. They're at www.transformersclub.com, and all their links either lead to transformersclub.com/?????? or botcon.com/????.

    What you have here is one of the trend of fake sites meant to catch people who make incorrect guesses as to a company's URL instead of looking it up, or make typos in entry.

    I think you're mixing up the OTFCC and TFClub.
    TFclub is just a group that makes unofficial transformers.
    Like the Cliffjumper or Ultra Magnus upgrade sets.

    Err.... correction, TFclub is the "official" China TF enthusiast forum, much like TFW. But it is notorious target for mal/spyware. The upgrade sets have always been from Fansproject, just that the earlier ones ie. Cliffjumper was available exclusively to this group.

    Possible. That would be the hazard of a groups's name being the same aside from using the abbreviation for Transformers instead of the full word.
