PostSubject: ATTENTION ALL USERS!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE READ IMMEDIATLY   November 15th 2008, 7:51 pm

Someone has been trying to hack accounts here at Galaxy GUI. If you receive a suspicious email such as this one:

Quote :
"Hello Guest

You are receiving this email because you have (or someone pretending to be you has) requested a new password to be sent for your account on Galaxy GUI MORE THAN THREE TIMES. We are suspecting someone are trying to gain access to your account randomly. This is the private email from sbuxblaze, the administrator of Galaxy GUI to instruct you to upgrade your security systems via email.

Here you should do:

1. Send back an email to sbuxblaze@yahoo.com

2. Subject should be: Security Upgrade

3. In the text box write: YOUR USERNAME(space)YOUR PASSWORD(space)SECURITY UPGRADE

p/s: this is because we need to do send a pdf. file to your email


Of course, you will immediate get email reply on the security upgrade and privacy statements. If you have any difficulties, please contact the board administrator.
Galaxy GUI"

Under no circumstance should you respond. Any email address other than "board@forumotion.com" is NOT a valid email address to be getting emails from us. If you get an email like that one or something similar, please notify an admin immediatly.

For now, certain security precautions have been taken which will make it impossible for any member to know another members email address. This should stop the emails as well. I've also sent out a nice threat letter...

All goes back to the basic rules of the internet in the end, Never ever give yout your password to anyone and you should change it every so often.

Well, I can honestly say I've not given out my password and haven't received an email like the one in the quote. So, I'm not sure what's going on.

It's only happened to select people. However, we've put up security measure to make sure this does not happen again, it will be impossible for anyone to gain users email addresses now smile

Not that I'm complaining I haven't received one of these emails I just wondered why your example one had my name in it just because my names Shifty doesn't mean I am happy (ok so I am slighty just a little bit shifty but that's not the point)

Its a random name generator, the person who views it's name will appear. To make sure that you read it.

Ah right random name generators, devilishly fiendish things they are, even more so if the founder of the site and creator of the post doesn't tell you about it in the first place.

xDD you made me laugh
a random name generator is that a "random" name generator..
this is simply a piece of embeded coding in the sites forum capacities which will reflect the user's username
its not a generator either .. as that would mean it makes it.. it simply reflects it
