    I am very sorry if my post is belong to other category.

    Ooops OP :).

    In this category I seen 2-3 post regarding HIRING, and they are offering 10-15 Euro per Hr or less.

    So, beware those persons/members are spreading the VIRUS. If they send any link of file in the name of GAMING, so please dont download and install.... this virus may harm your images/doc/pdf files, then one message will shown on ur screen to contact those bastards to get the key to recover your files.

    As I have 15+ experience in IT security, so I save my machine.

    I just thought to share here.

    May be my post is useless or it may save someone's computer too.

    Reg.

    I recently encountered hidden bitcoin Miner. But that virus was idiot as that started using 100% processor in mining. I suspended and killed.

    Mainly emails are coming from a Babylon Gaming LTD. Be aware guys, a ton of people became the victims of phishing attacks and got scammed.

    Is Babylon Gaming Ltd back here under a new account name? I reported and called out them out for spamming here earlier this month when they were posting under the account name "steven thompson" here and created this thread (along with several others). They panicked and spammed the profiles of every moderator asking for their account and thread to be deleted since they "were no longer looking to hire anyone".

    However, there was another member who created a thread like this warning people about them (it looks like it was deleted?) after he received an email from them that said they were still looking, even after they said they weren't. Someone also said they got a virus from them on their now deleted Facebook page, although they removed the comment.

    This is what we come across when we are interacting online. As much as many of us have a good intention of growing as a family, we have a few of the members who are here just to promote their dubious methods. We need to be careful because online fraud today is a reality. Make sure that you engage in deals that are clean.
