    Mods,

    There have been 2 phishing attempts on BHW recently, and it did take sometime to be removed. Today it was paypal, the other day it was gmail. These phishers usually attack on Asian daytime, so that their thread lasts for more than a while. I have also realized that other inappropriate threads lasts longer when it is posted during the after hours.


    I fell for the paypal one, and these guys are pretty good. So, the current mods are humans, and most of you guys are off during the US after hours, so I hope you can consider having one or 2 guys watching the forum during the Asian daytime.

    Not a bad idea. Maybe you should set up a poll to get members in that part of the world to rally around you idea.

    We expect our members to laugh at these stupid phishing attacks, we never thought someone from here, called a blackhatter, could actually fall for these.

    I'm used to opening new links in new tabs, and only reviewing them later. Sometimes, and most of the time, I don't know which one is which. Just randomly opening a new tab, and I see gmail, or paypal.... ok just login... hmm.. shit.. that was a phishing site...

    hail to the phisher....

    do you really view and review the website address all the time?

    some of us do, some of us do not, some of us do it sometimes.

    But with every 100 clicks on the link, at least 5-10 will fill in their genuine details, maybe higher, even in BHW. Don't believe me? Do this in the Jr Vip section, and see how many ppl actually fill in their details. These phishers are running their business on probability...

    I don't know what to say about anyone falling for these lame scam attempts, probably this place is not for you. I mean c'mon why anyone should warn you to not give your paypal passwords etc, these warnings you have got when you 1st registered your paypal acct.

    I think best system to combat these cunts would be to close the registration for the john doe public, do a clean house and ban all those who have multiple accounts, then permit registration of new members only by invitation coming from a member who's been around for some time, have already some quality posts etc, then if the newcomer screw up things in some way being it attempts to scam or cookie stuff this forum's members, the one who invited the ass to be kicked out together with the jerk.

    mate, if you had seen the phishing links, it was convincing. Even a pro might fall for it. It just looks like another paypal frontpage. And no one is giving out anything, you fall for it if you login into the ''real-looking'' paypal login page.

    If this forum closes, it will be very slow moving. Look at thevault, while the content there is real good, but the threads move extremely slow.
