    I can't. Maybe they're on holiday.
    The link I normally use is forum.avast.com and I doubt it changed since few days back.

    When I tried the Avast forums this morning (24th) I got a scheduled maintenance back soon message, since then I don't even get that.

    It is probably due to the forum being hacked early yesterday morning.

    Not sure how much damage was done if any but I guess there will be a major forum software upgrade, plus it's the weekend.

    The source is myself as I was reviewing a discussion about the hacker on the forum when it happened.

    Can't access them either.

    They went down yesterday morning GMT around 6AM.

    There wasn't any planned forum maintenance and the avast! site is unaffected.

    It's odd that they haven't come back online yet.

    It's more than a recommendation. The old passwords will no longer work when the forum comes back.
