VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

Postby Ferguson Foont » Wed Mar 03, 2004 10:19 pm

Those of you who have email addresses here (and you all may have them for the asking) may receive a message that purports to come from "support@bareknuckles.org."

THIS IS A TROJAN. There IS NO "support@bareknuckles.org." The message cotnains a zipfile attachment that it urges you to open to read the details of a trojan infection. It is, however, itself a trojan, and it got the "bareknuckles.org" domain name off the parent website of this forum, where it is listed.

DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. If you do your computer will become a spam engine.

DELETE THE MESSAGE UNREAD. There IS NO "SUPPORT@BAREKNUCKLES.ORG" email address. It's a fake.

There have been two more mailings purporting to be from "The Bareknuckles.org team," one from "management@bareknuckles.org" and one from "administration@bareknuckles.org." They contain zipped attachments that are trojans.

These were not sent from any legitimate account at bareknuckles.org. There are no such accounts. There is a "webmaster@bareknuckles.org" account and an "abuse@bareknuckles.org" account, but these are used only to receive email, NEVER, EVER to send email.

The original sender of these messages seems to be one "JMayo75420@aol.com" but this is likely a spoofed address. It actually arrived through dev.servenetworks.net, which I do not believe is a server for America Online.

Word to the wise: NEVER, EVER open ANY email attachment unless you genuinely know what it is and who it's from. Any administrative message going out to mail accounts on this server will come from me, foont@bareknuckles.org, and will NEVER, EVER contain binary attachments.
