Assembla hit by a virus?

Today hosted task management site Assembla was hit by some virus. Around 3 hours back we got Service Unavailable - DNS failure error when trying to access the portal.

Trying to call any API from Assembla returns with the following unwanted HTML code prepended to the response:

<html><head><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=http://sedoparking.com/?path=home"></head><body><a href="http://sedoparking.com/?path=home">Please click here</a></body></html>

We have logged a ticket with them. The response was quick but when we tried to post a reply comment we consistently got error -
Your CAPTCHA words didn't match
We'll keep on chasing them for updates and hope safety for Assembla users.
