I'm not sure if this is the right place for this-if not please move.
There is a website I've been going to for the past year to watch T.V. shows on. On my XP machine (using Mozilla FF). A few days ago I got a message saying the website was hacked or hijacked (I forget the original term). There was a box that basically said "get me out of here." So I closed it out. Then I noticed in my favorites list-the websites icon has been replaced with a red box with a white circle and a red line through it. Reminds me of a do not enter sign. I Googled and found no useable info on this. Is it legitimate or maybe a scare tactic? Has it happened to anyone else on any other sites? Thanks.
