    Default WARNING - All your emails were hacked in the last 24 hours

    Please allow me to warn all the users of this forum, that all the emails were supposedly hacked by some obscure hacker on this site. Zengrifter is now obviously busy with this thing right now. Anyway all the users must know that they are in a very dangerous situation. Do not trust emails that are supposedly sended from this site, they might contain malware that will screw your computer if you open them. Let's wait for further news from the administration of this forum.
    When you have eliminated all the impossible, whatever remains, however implausible, must be the logic truth...

    I found no internal evidence of site-wide member email hack.
    What DID happen is that my yahoo mail account was hacked and sent out some spam, and many of the affected personal yahoo email contacts were also Zzone members with prior email contact through the suspect yahoo account.

    BTW, I was surprized frankly at the number of old acquaintances, including counters and other APs, who replied back to the spam with messages like: "Do you really think the raspberry ketones can help me lose weight?" or "I get a much lower price on viagra already!" or "Did you send this??" LOL

    Notwithstanding, I have asked the webmaster to take another look and make sure it wasn't the vB site itself. If anyone here received the ZG spam and you have never had yahoo mail correspondence with me, let us know.

    Dr. Arkham, I apologize for not responding sooner - I was away from my desk for several hours. zh

    That happened to me about a month ago. They apparently didn’t find out my password, and actually take control of my account, but spam went out looking like it came from me, not just to my contacts, but to everyone in my Sent folder as well. Kind of annoying, but apparently a one-time thing, so far.

    Another strange thing hapened yesterday, this site was not eccessible for almost an hour or more, this site just disappeared and the address was showing another site with commercials instead, saying that ZZF no longer exists because the contract was ended. Any ideas?

    Well, at least vit is good to know zzone was not hacked at least. Anyway it is a very dangerous situation for those with hacked emails. This hacker might be able to send a malicious email with a virus capable to kill any computer if the email gets opened by the unaware owner. BTW - As I said to you via email, I think your Facebook account was hacked, or similar social network account, if you have any. That's why your email was hacked in the first place. And that's why I have never trusted social networks, because they are owned and coded by idiots who do not know too much about real security issues.

    I checked, it was strictly my yahoo, and that is fixed.
