@EdwardElricAlchemist and AzhiDevn - Yes, we had these spambots yesterday, then these bots were taken care of, and the board added some extra measures against these type of spambots. I made more announcements last night, but You can read the gist of it on Spambots PMs with advertising links thread that's in this forum. (Anyway, sorry for these spam PMs. Please delete them. smile.gif )

===================

To everyone:

If you received a PM message from Zurakitl titled “New forum rules!” and containing a link for a "New Rule," that is a spam PM. The board did NOT send such PM regarding the "new forum rule." The link in the PM leads to an advertisement of some Viagra vendor.

This bot has been killed, and since then the board has added extra measures against this kind of Spam attack.

Sorry for the spam PM you received. Please simply delete that spam PM. Thank you!! smile.gif

@xXdark_angel_nekoXx - Thanks. ^^ Since the board did NOT send out such message, we can already tell you that that one is a Spam.
Please go ahead, and delete that message. biggrin.gif

If you clicked the link then no offence but you deserve whatever happens to you.

Fun tips:
1) If you get a PM by someone who's not a mod or admin about the rules then be suspicious. At best it's a rick roll, at worst it'll eat your computer. Be doubly suspicious if it's a new member with no posts.

2) When you mouse over a link in most browsers it'll show the full url or most of it in the bottom left.

User MannInBlackk has sent me a PM of such content:

QUOTE
Hello, friend. There are viruses' activities from your computer in last few days. Strongly recommend you to check your computer. You can find a report about your computer's security and solve every problem with it here: http://www..check-pc.net/detected/Goral
Thank you. Forum member.
(I've deliberately added a dot so that no one woul go to that site by a coincidence).

I didn't even bother to check what was on the site he sent (I would have to switch to linux to avoid possible virus infection) and I would suggest to ban him. Most probably he sent similar PMs to many other users and it looks like he registered to do only that.
Edit: Quick search and here's what I found:
http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/check-pc....stid/?p=3638637

Anyone else received a similar PM?

^ Thank you Goral!! ^^

Yes, we are getting reports on members receiving PMs from this spammer. Oh boy. sad.gif


-------------------------------

ETA:

URGENT NOTE to everyone!!!

If any of you get any PM from MannInBlackk, pleaes hit the DELETE button.
It is a Spam PM with the link to some unwanted site. The spammer has been taken care of, but if you happen to find a leftover PM from MannInBlackk in you Inbox, please DO NOT click on any of the links on the PM, and instead, simply hit the DELETE button.


Thank you! smile.gif
