Possible fake email notifications?

#1 Unread post by Vephriel » Sat Aug 25, 2018 6:02 pm

I just had a strange email:

I clicked it out of habit without noticing at first, the link took me to an unfamiliar phpBB forum login page, which I closed immediately, though when I came back to the real Petopia forums I had been logged out. I'm going to change my password just to be safe, but this struck me as odd. Is it some sort of spam? Fishing email? Thought I'd mention it here just in case.

Ugh. forums2 was a test version of the forum on a different server. The "kolbyjack" domain is legitimate though - that's the domain of the guy who hosts our server. It sounds like spammer has managed to notice that forum exists and create a user name there and spam you. I'm sorry about that :( I'll see about that forum being switched off asap.

That forum should now be locked. Once again, sorry about that.
