Russian Security Breach


Very important and I sourced it back to a Russian webserver. Of course I reported it. Someone suggested I made an inappropriate post and was forever banned from this site. All I had to do was respond to dispute the posting. Old trick. Of course my virus checkers and intruder alarms went wild. My IP address shifts at least every few hours.

Update yours now?

Does it show up in your email looking the same as the real emails from this forum?

I was on the hahastop.com website last week. I clicked on a picture and it tried to put a virus on my computer. Luckily Avast stopped it.
