The ACH Network had its start in the early 1970's when a group of California bankers formed the Special Committee on Paperless Entries (SCOPE) in direct response to the rapid escalation of check volume in the United States. The Committee set out to explore the technical, operational, and legal framework necessary for an automated payments system, leading to the formation of the first ACH association in 1972. Similar groups soon formed around the country.
NACHA occupies a unique role in the association world, serving as both an industry trade association and administrator of Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network. As the industry trade association that oversees the ACH Network, NACHA provides services in three key functional areas:

There's a link through to a hacked site, containing four embedded javascripts on other hacked sites which eventually lead to decalintos.com or neoprenpillar.com, both hosted on (IQHost Ltd, Russia). This tries to download a variety of exploits (Wepawet report here).

IQHost seems to be over-run with this sort of toxic crap at the moment. Blocking access to is probably a smart move.
