Its legit but its the ‘old’ forums (guessing you’re registered on both). I flagged up an issue to Epic recently over hijacked links on the old site. That got fixed quickly or so it seemed, but maybe hackers returned or hadn’t left. Either way the old forums are still down. I wouldn’t worry unless you’re using the same login & password on here…

The affected forum site covers UDK, Infinity Blade, Gears of War, Bulletstorm, and prior Unreal Tournament games. However, the separate forum sites covering Unreal Engine 4, Fortnite, and the new Unreal Tournament were unaffected."
