This is a low risk exploit as admin privledges are required.  Will fix it soon.

Next time please email -email is unavailable- as mentioned on our website.

When editing the main screen message from the admin pages, it appears to be possible to include any HTML that you like, which means that this could potentially be abused, either with javascript or other code embedded in the message.
